A vestment with ample sleeves worn over an alb or cassock alb of the same liturgical color as the vestments of the celebrant or some other festive color. This vestment is usually worn by the subdeacon, and may be worn by the crucifer on festive occasions. ( Photo courtesy - Robert Gaspard Co.)
A simple straight-sided gown with sleeves made of linen or woolen garment, often with decorative tapestry bands running vertically down either side of the front and back. Worn by men, women, and children, the tunic was the dress of choice throughout the Roman world.
The tunic (Latin tunica) was the common masculine garment of Greco-Roman civilization. It was worn by citizens and non-citizens alike; citizens, though, would wear it under the toga, especially at formal occasions. The length of the garment, the presence or lack of stripes, as well as their width and ornamentation, would indicate the wearer's status in Roman society.
