Summary/Abstract: The article presents examples of monks’ clothing used in the Middle Ages in Bulgaria. It reviews its features and draws conclusions and summaries related to its individual elements and colours being used. The rules that were set in monks’ clothing did not limit their individual world on the account of community. Their attire, even if homotypic, differed in certain details. Its general appearance depended on various factors such as the common rules, local culture, monastery prosperity, climate conditions etc.
