Capicerius (or Capitiarus, French, chef-cier), an ecclesiastical officer. Some think he had the care of the cerce, or tapers, and derived his name a capienda celra.. Others make Isirn the same as the primicerius, so called from being the first name inscribed on the cera (or tablet of the church). Martene explains capicerius to be the monk or nun who had charge of the capitium or presbyterium, or of the sacred ornaments and furniture of the church.
