[In] the differing charisms of the holy men who adorn the church. For tassels are separated and reunite again.
Greek Original:
Κροσσωτοῖς χρυσοῖς: τοῖς διαφόροις χαρίσμασι τῶν τὴν ἐκκλησίαν κοσμούντων ἱερῶν ἀνδρῶν. διῄρηνται γὰρ οἱ κροσσοὶ καὶ πάλιν ἥνωνται.
The headword phrase is in the dative plural, a quotation from Psalm 44.14 LXX (45.13 RSV) where it refers, as a substantive, to garments worn by the bride in a wedding. The commentary, paraphrased from Theodoret's commentary ad loc. (PG 80.1196c), follows an interpretation common among early Christian authors whereby the bride so adorned is a metaphor for the church.
For tassels cf. kappa 2474.
