وفق الطقوس الكنسية، ملابس كهنوتية يرتديها الكاهن بالكنيسة (غالبًا ما يكون مكون من قطعة قماش البطرشيل) لأداء صلاة الزيت المقدس وهي صلاة يُطلب فيها الشفاء للمريض من مرضه؛ سواء أكان مرضًا روحيًا أو جسديًا، ويُدهن فيها المريض بالزيت المقدس.

Considering that the text is about the apostolic period of Christianity, I am inclined to think that the reference is to the Jewish practice of wearing a tallit (a prayer shawl), a practice that was pretty common among the Apostles and their contemporaries. As to the anointing, that is pretty straightforward.
