THE SAINT ANSELM COLLEGE MACE Originally, the mace was a heavy club with a metal head, often spiked, used by knights in the Middle Ages to crush the armor of opponents. By the 14th century, maces had become more ceremonial in use and decorated with jewels and precious metals, losing their war-club appearance. Maces no longer were used as weapons after the 16th century. In modern times, the mace has become a work of art and a symbol of authority, usually identified with such formal functions in higher education as convocations, presidential installations, and commencements. The Saint Anselm College mace, hand carved from black walnut, was designed and executed by the monks of Saint Joseph Abbey, the Trappist monastery in Spencer, Massachusetts. One of its striking features is the cross surmounting the mace, which is patterned after the cross in the Saint Anselm Abbey Church; another is the seal of the College, mounted on the round head of the mace, and composed of a shield on which appears a black cross with three drops of blood in each quarter formed by the cross. These are the arms attributed to Saint Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury and patron saint of the College and Abbey. A sheaf of five silver arrows superimposed on the shaft of the cross, representing the original five counties of New Hampshire, is taken from the seal of the Colony of New Hampshire, upon which it was the central ornament. Encircling the shield is the legend Sigillum Collegii Sancti Anselmi (Seal of the College of Saint Anselm), and at the bottom of the circle is the founding date of the College —1889.

ACADEMIC COSTUME The distinctive dress associated with academic ceremonies comprises a gown, hood, and cap. Developed in the Middle Ages, academic dress was ecclesiastical in origin since, initially, all members of a university were clerics and required to wear clerical attire. The earliest dress for undergraduates and bachelors consisted of a black habit — the habit of the Benedictine Order. A black hood lined with white rabbit fur was worn with it and, under the habit, all wore the plain black cassock. Such garb distinguished students and faculty as university members, but it also protected against the cold, indoors and out, since medieval buildings were unheated. The hood, used in early times as a head covering, has become a symbol of higher education, and the three elements — gown, hood, and cap — today are colorful accessories of formal academic functions. The style of the gown indicates the degree attained by the wearer. The bachelor’s gown has short, pointed sleeves and is worn closed front. The master’s gown has oblong sleeves and the doctor’s gown has bellshaped sleeves, and may be worn open or closed. Velvet trimming down the front and velvet sleeve bars also distinguish the doctor’s gown. The color of the hood edging generally indicates the discipline of the wearer, for example, white for arts and letters, crimson for journalism, purple for law, green for medicine, yellow for science, gold for nursing, dark blue for philosophy, scarlet for theology, et cetera. The hood is lined with the official color or colors of the college or university conferring the degree. More than one color may be shown by using a chevron, or by even divisions of the colors. Saint Anselm College colors are blue and white, so the hoods presented today have blue and white linings. Tassels on the caps usually are black for bachelors and masters, but doctors may wear gold tassels.
