Merge[edit]

Neither Chasuble-alb nor Alb is able to quite pull off a full article right now. Given the overlap of content, it would be helpful to merge them. -- Pastordavid 03:58, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

  • I've never heard of a chasuble-alb. I think Alb is definitely the more notable topic, and this article should be expanded, and chasuble-alb and cassock-alb merged into it. AlexTiefling 09:09, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Agreed. Johnbod 21:12, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Indeed: the alb has a very separate existence just as the chasuble does. Some modern albs are cut in a sort of all encompassing style that might suggest a chasuble (and are advertised as such) but in no way would be mistaken for a chasuble per se! Exumbra 22:27, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

  • There is no such thing as a chasuble-alb. There is a cassock-alb, but no chasuble-alb. Whoever made the chasuble-alb stub must have been confused. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.81.204.124 (talk) 15:01, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

The chasible-alb and alb are 2 different objects, the articles should not be merged.-TheGiftedSlayer (talk) 05:48, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Twelfth oldest[edit]

The text currently lists the alb as the "twelfth oldest liturgical garment". This is a very precise claim made with no supporting evidence, and doesn't link into any timeline of liturgical garments that I can easily find. I note the original sentence was simply "oldest" and an anonymous commenter added "twelfth" with no explanation (diff) which makes me suspicious. Quick googling suggests the original statement may conflate alb and sticharion (e.g. this page or this book) but I'm no expert. However, the current statement seems unhelpful even if accurate as it doesn't provide any context. -- Shimmin Beg (talk) 21:39, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
