History of the Cassock Surplice

The Cassock Surplice was originally a long garment with open sleeves reaching almost to the ground. Today they are still popular in the Western Catholic, Anglican, and some Lutheran traditions, however the surplice often has shorter, closed sleeves and the shoulders are square. Anglicans typically refer to a Roman-style surplice with the Medieval Latin term “cotta” which is the Italian translation of "cut-off' - as it is derived from the cut-off alb. English-speaking Catholics normally don’t make the distinction between the two styles and often refer to both simply as a "surplice".
