English Clergy Habit

English Clergy Habit
A Priest
Originally uploaded by Aristibule.
An example of the priest's street clothes in the tradition of the Anglo-Catholic or English old Catholic (Orthodox Anglican) tradition. The Sarum cassock is similar to the Byzantine, the Anglo-Saxon gown rather like the Ryassa, the Canterbury cap the older form of clerical headgear somewhat like a skophia or kamilavki. The tippet is a scarf, a portion of the 'hood' and not a stole of any sort. The cincture in this case is of a sash-type, leather belts are also worn.
