The minister’s surplice is a decorative version of the white garment. A minister’s surplice is worn as the outermost garments in Anglican churches, though other religions also use the pieces. Minister’s surplices are recognized by their decorative hems, particularly along the bottom and cuffs. The neckline of the unit may be squared or crew cut depending on the design.
The minister’s surplice is considered an essential piece of clergy apparel in many religions. The white color of the item is meant to remind one of the baptism process and the white garment worn during the ceremony. A minister’s surplice usually extends past the waist and may even extend the length of the wearer. The sleeves of the garment are designed to be large and billowing as in other types of surplices.
