Chasubles are the outer garments put on by priests in the Roman Catholic rite to conduct a holy mass. Their colouring is of significance and depends primarily on the period of the liturgical year. Nowadays, the rules of using the colours of liturgical vestments are precisely defined in the so-called General Introduction to the Roman Missal.more
The presented baroque chasuble represents the so-called Roman type. It has a column separated by a gold piping, which was also used to hem the sides and collar. The sides are decorated with shaded embroidery with gold and silver thread with an arabesque motif and representations of puttos at the bottom of the fabric. In the field there are pretexts (columns) of the chasuble and medallions with embroidered figural scenes from the New Testament, containing painted faces and hands of figures, covered with a vegetal vine with a motif of large flowers. At the front, we can see: the Birth of Christ, the Presentation in the Temple and the Assumption of Mary, separated by wreaths and olive branches; at the back: the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Adoration of the Child, Mary’s Ascension to the Temple and the Annunciation, between which a crown of stars and a wreath of roses have been placed.
Chasubles are the outer garments put on by priests in the Roman Catholic rite to conduct a holy mass. Their colouring is of significance and depends primarily on the period of the liturgical year. Nowadays, the rules of using the colours of liturgical vestments are precisely defined in the so-called General Introduction to the Roman Missal. The document mentions six colours: white, green, red, black, purple, and pink. The white colour of the chasuble is used primarily during the mass of Christmas and Resurrection, as well as on the Holidays of the Lord, Mary, angels, saints (excluding martyrs), on All Saints’ Day, and in St. Peter’s Cathedral.
