rhason (plural rhasons)

  1. The clerical garb worn in the Greek and Russian Orthodox Churches.
    • 1998, Encyclopaedia Britannica CD 98 Multimedia Edition:
      The inner rhason corresponds to the cassock and, like it, is used by the secular clergy. The outer rhason, a wide-sleeved garment, is black in the Greek Church but variable in colour in the Russian Church among the secular clergy (i.e., those who minister in parishes).
