Medieval shirt and historical sources

This type of medieval shirt can be found on the picture by Geerten tot Sint Jans - The Legend of the elics of St. John the Baptist.

The history of shirt is very long. The archetypes of medieval shirt are probably tunics from Central Asia. Tunic moved from there to Sumerians, Babylonians and Egyptians. Later, it gave rise to Greek chiton and Roman tunic. Camisia, a tunic from Gaul worn also by Teuton tribes, had a T letter shape, derived from the Middle East. In all Roman languages the word shirt comes precisely from the word "camisia". The medieval underwear for men and women started to differ in 12th century. Male shirt, like the rest of medieval clothing for men, became shorter, and female shirt was the basis of a chemise.
