I think the Orthodox might have us here too…

… first they trumped with the vestments during Vestment Week, and I dare say they may trump us again during Liturgical Head Gear Week with these fabulous hats.

    The headgear from the clergy on the left appears to be from the later (Eastern) Roman Empire.. I have never seen clergy wearing such during any liturgical functions though.In ICXCJohn

    I was going to say something but it was way too snarky. Have you ever seen a Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Honor Guard? Now THOSE are some funky hats! :)

    The headgear on the left looks like Chinese men during the Ming or Han Dynasty.

    I guess they can come in handy when having a bad hair day…or maybe the bad hair would be better. Yikes!

    I agree with "ringhtwingprof." The only way to describe these things is goofy!
