Sets of Cope with Humeral veil
Being a liturgical vestment, a cope is a long mantle or cloak worn by clergy, lay ministers in some situations, and a Bishop. When worn by a bishop, it is accompanied by a miter, which is a ceremonial headdress used in Traditional Christianity. A humeral veil, also being a liturgical vestment, is used in Anglican and Lutheran churches. The humeral veil is a piece of cloth that is approximated to be 3m long and 50cm wide and is placed over the shoulders down to the front. It also has pockets within that allow the wearer to hold an object without touching it directly.
They also vary according to liturgical colors, which are dependent on the season of the year they are being worn or on special occasions. An instance where the Humeral veils are worn is during the Mass of the Lord’s supper of the Catholic church. It is also used when a Ciborium containing blessed sacrament is taken to the Altar of Repose for reservation and brought back during the Good Friday service. It is also important that we distinguish a humeral veil from a Vimpa. The latter, looking similar but of a different design, is used when a Bishop celebrates Mass.
