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.
