OED: [A variant of chrism representing
a popular dissyllabic pronunciation, such as may still be heard in pris-um, spas-um, and the like: cf. the
earliest quot. from Cursor Mundi.
Eventually this form was somewhat differentiated from chrism in the primary
sense.] 1. A dissyllabic pronunciation of
chrism, in senses 1 and 2. 2. (In full, chrisom-cloth, -robe, etc.): A white robe, put on a
child at baptism as a token of innocence: originally, perh. merely a
head-cloth, with which the chrism was covered up to prevent its being rubbed
off. In the event of the child's death within a month from baptism, it was used
as a shroud: otherwise it, or its estimated value, was given as an offering at
the mother's purification. 3. The alb or surplice of a priest. 4. (In full, chrisom-child, -babe, etc.): orig. A child in its
chrisom-cloth; a child in its first month; an innocent babe. b. In obituaries and the like, applied to a child
that died during the first month or shortly after baptism, and was shrouded in
its chrisom-cloth. Some think that it was applied to children that died
unbaptized; but indisputable evidence of this has not been found, although
modern editors have so understood quot. 1601, and the like; and cf. chrisomer.
