Dan337 commented on the word calloyer
On Mount Athos a calloyer is a professed monk as opposed to a novice. The calloyers are divided into three grades—the rhasophoria, or wearers of the rhasum, a rough cloak; the “little habit,” or wearers of the black flowing robe, called the mandyas; and the “great habit,” which was the highest monastic grade.— William Blackwood.
