Behold the almuce!



An almuce was a hood-like shoulder cape worn as a choir vestment in the Middle Ages, especially in England. Initially, it was worn by the general population. It found lasting use by certain canons regular, such as the white almutium worn on the arm by Premonstratensian canons. Use of fur-lined almuce was against the rules of the canons, leading to requests for dispensations from the rule, as described by Alison Fizzard. It also survives in the tippet and hood worn by some Anglican priests.

The famous multiple colour chasuble.

Very often this had to do with poorer churches and chapels “making do.” To the best of their means they tried to follow the cycle of liturgical colours. Quite admirable when you think about it. Nowadays you have rich parishes that can’t be bothered with acquiring a rose vestment.

From here:

Quote
The Madelman was a Spanish articulated action doll, in production from 1968 through 1983, by Plastic Industries Madel.

[...]

Spanish doctor RaquelAldea Escudero uses the dolls to create historical figures, such as this series of Spanish Civil War soldiers.

Southern dome Christ Pantokrator mosaic, fourteenth century, Church of the Holy Saviour in Chora (Kariye Müzesi, Kariye Camii), Istanbul – This beautiful dome mosaic on the southern dome on the inner narthex shows the genealogy of Jesus Christ, was completed 1315-1321 AD in glass and gold tesserae.

The dome mosaic is centered on the image of Christ Pantokrator, ruler of all. Radiating out from Christ along the dome’s ribs are mosaics of the ancestors of Christ as indicated in the Biblical narrative.

The Chora Church (Ἐκκλησία τοῦ Ἁγίου Σωτῆρος ἐν τῇ Χώρᾳ) was originally built in the fourth century in the countryside outside of Constantinople’s original city walls. The current structure, which was later located just within the Theodosian walls, was rebuilt in the 11th century and the impressive internal decorations were made during the early 14th century under the patronage of Byzantine statesman Theodore Metochites. The church was converted into a mosque circa 1500 by Atık Ali Paşa, the Grand Vizier of Sultan Bayezid II and the Christian iconography was covered by plaster. In 1948, the building was converted into a museum, opening to the public in 1958. The artwork was restored by the Byzantine Institute of America and the Dumbarton Oaks Center for Byzantine Studies. The Chora Church contains the most extensive and complete Byzantine period artwork of any Byzantine period church in modern Istanbul.

You have all seen 'boy bishops' but what about 'boy popes'?

The photo is from Santiago de Compostela and was part of the celebrations there for the anniversary of the coronation of Pope Pius XII.
