Gown, The Black

   An Academical gown; an official or distinctive dress worn by students and officers of a College or University, and also by officials of a Court of Justice. It is not an ecclesiastical garment, although it was customary during a time of great spiritual decadence in the Church for the gown with bands to be worn during the preaching of the sermon in the service. This, however, has long since been given up; the surplice is more properly worn.
