The clergy can be broadly divided into two types: the secular clergy, ministering to the lay populace; and the regular clergy i.e. monks and nuns.

Secular clergy dressed in a similar manner to the lay populace, with the addition of certain vestments on formal and ceremonial occasions; the stole and cope would be the most likely to be worn in public, since the other vestments were reserved for conducting services (in particular the Eucharist). These make up the majority of the cloting in this section.

Regular clergy dressed in a broadly similar manner irrespective of gender, the main specialist items being a habit and scapular.

For an example of the volume of liturgical accoutrements which a wealthy church might accumulate, see vestments in the Liber Eliensis.
