Cope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (387 words)
The cope is a liturgical vestment, which may be of any liturgical colour, and is like a very long mantle or cloak, fastened at the breast by a clasp.
A cope may be worn by any rank of the clergy, or indeed the laity in certain circumstances, as it is not a vestment in the strictest sense of the word.
In the Church of England, and in the Anglican Communion as a whole, the cope is worn by High Church Anglicans in the same manner as that of the Roman Catholic Church.
