Bursar of a convent was its treasurer. In ecclesiastical phraseology, a burse is the receptacle for the corporal and chalice-cover. It is a square and flat box made of cardboard, covered with rich silk or cloth of gold, embroidered and studded with jewels, open on one side only, and placed over the chalice veil when the sacred vessels are carried to the altar by the celebrant.
