Miters hats

( number of products: 17 )

In traditional Christianity, the miter hat is a style of headgear that is presently known as the traditional, ceremonial headpiece of bishops and some abbots. Miters are normally white, however white can also refer to religious garments made of gold or silver materials. Other colors are frequently used for the stitched bands and other ornaments that embellish a miter and lappets. Although multicolored miters are sometimes sold and worn today, this is most likely due to the maker's or wearer's lack of knowledge of ceremonial history.

The miter bishop's hat is a tall folding cap in Western Christianity that consists of two comparable sections (front and rear) that rise to a peak and are sewed together at the sides. From the rear, two small lappets are continually dangling. In the Catholic Church, ecclesial law grants (1) bishops, (2) abbots, (3) cardinals, and those canonically equal to provincial bishops the right to wear the miter hat and other apostolic insignia.

The miters are fashioned in the shape of a bulbous crown and are entirely encased in brocade, damask, or gold fabric. It's frequently embroidered and heavily embellished with gemstones. The Eastern miter bishop's hat generally has four icons connected to it, and it is usually gold, but other liturgical colors may well be chosen.

A cross, either fashioned of metal and standing erect or embroidered in fabric and resting flat on the top, is placed on top of the miter. The cross will be flat on the miters given to priests. The miter bishop's hat may have a symbol on top of it instead of the flat cross. Bishops have the right to wear the miters, although they can also be given to archpriests, protopresbyter, and archimandrites. The priestly miter hat does not have a cross on top of it, and it is given at the authority of a council of bishops.

This was my first order over the internet for altar cloths. I could not have been served better. The cloths are beautifully made and the service was second to none. I was grateful to be kept informed about my order from start to finish. DHL were extremely good too. Thank you.
Very happy with order! It was a gift for one of my favorite priests. He was definitely humbly thrilled to receive the veils and matching burses. When he became our pastor years ago, he had mentioned his wish to bring back these items to the liturgy. This is the third set I have been able to provide when he was reassigned to new parishes. This time I let him know the gift was for him, not for the parish, so my stipulation was for these to go with him whenever he was reassigned. He eagerly agreed. The quality is outstanding. I was surprised to see the burses were a bit smaller than previous ones, but he was okay with the size since he uses the burse like a pall under the veil instead of on top.
