Crosier Or Crozier
Some scholars are confused between the crosier and the bishop's pastoral staff. The first is surmounted by a cross between two serpents, used in liturgical services and in the bishop's procession, while the second is just a stick as a symbol of leadership and pastoral authority.

See "Pastoral staff."
