This Russian-style cassock (Russian: ряса ryasa, Ukrainian: ряса ryasa, Greek: εξώρασον, ράσον exorason) is a voluminous garment worn over the inner cassock by bishops, priests, deacons, and monastics as their regular outer wear. It is not worn by seminarians, readers or subdeacons in the Russian tradition. A long, floor-length garment, loosely fitting, with very large sleeves. It may be worn with the bottoms of the sleeves turned back, which are sometimes faced in a contrasting color. Outer cassock is a non-liturgical robe worn by Orthodox clergy both as ordinary daily clothing (their out-of-doors and domestic distinct attire) and underneath "liturgical robes" (vestments which are worn during church services). The outer cassock symbolizes the expiration of a clergyman in this world, and his burial and subsequent dedication to God and the Heavenly Kingdom. Over the riassa the bishop wears a panagia and a cross, while a priest wears only a cross.
