Albe (Latin alba) A Shirt or white linen garment reaching to the heels (whence its names alba, telaris, &c.) and floded rond the loins by a girdle, formerly the common dress of the Roman Catholic clergy; but now used only in sacred functions. The second vestment put on by the priest when preparing for the celebration of mass.
