The cowl, or hood, was originally a
covering for the head to protect it
from the inclemency of the weather,
and was worn by all classes without
distinction. Its ready adaptation to
conceal the features led to its adop
tion at a very early age by monks
and ascetics. As these multiplied and
formed themselves into various dis
tinct orders, their hoods assumed a
different fashion in cut, color and ma
terial. From the monks it passed to
the cathedral and collegiate churches,
and from them to the universities.
