How to use "Shrouding" in context?

The Byzantine shrouding, also known as the monastic veil, was a garment worn by monastics and later by regular clergy in the Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches. It is a type of veil or cape, usually made of heavy cloth and worn over the head and shoulders. It is often blessed and carried in processions by a priest or bishop. Like the moire veil, it is often used in liturgical settings to create a sense of mystery and spirituality.

The Byzantine shrouding grew out of a need for greater privacy and security for monastics and regular clergy.
