Scarf a piece of silk or other material, hanging from the neck, worn over the rochet or surplice. It is not mentioned in the rubric of the English ritual, but is worn by our bishops and dignitaries of the Church. It has been used from the primitive ages by the clergy, when the presbyters and bishops wore a scarf in the administration of the sacraments, and on some other occasions. According to Walcott (Sacred Archoeology), it properly belonged to the doctors of divinity and dignitaries, is called talaga in Italy and Malta, and is worn by the doctors of theology.
