Originally a father or aged monk, but afterwards the superior of an abbey. Abbots regular were abbots in function as well as name; abbots commendatory were guardians of abbeys, drawing part of the revenues. The abbot of misrule or abbot of unreason, in Scotland, was a sort of histrionic character, similar to the lord of misrule in England.
