Vestmentsathe robes, stoles or other items worn by clergy, or cloths used at the altaranot only add beauty to a worship service, but are visual clues to the liturgical season and to the tone of a particular service. The most beautiful and meaningful vestments are often those made for a particular priest, serving in a specific sanctuary.
