The chasuble originated as a simple tunic worn by the lower classes in Ancient Greece, including Saint Paul. Originally these robes had hoods that kept the wearer warm.
Later between the fourth and sixth century, priests and members of the upper class began wearing them, although it was considered a humble garment. It wasn't until the sixth century that the chasuble developed into a sacred vestment.
The chasubles became quite elaborate during the eighth century, but during the reign of King Henry III, went through a backlash where they became more simplistic. That's when Gothic vestments appeared on the scene. You can learn more about the history of chasubles by clicking here.
