  • Mentioned in the following portion of the definition for Whitsuntide from the Century:

    "Whitsuntide, along with Easter, was one of the two great seasons for baptism in the ancient church, and received the name of White Sun-day (Dominica Alba) from the albs or white robes of the newly baptized, as Low Sunday was also called Alb-Sunday (Dominica post Albas or in Albis depositis)."
