He knows too much...

I would kindly like to direct your attention to the Web page of Dieter Philippi. Herr Philippi is, in his own words, "an internationally recognized and renowned expert on religious, clerical and ecclesiastical headgear." Some of the information is in German, but not all. His attention centers on Roman Catholic haberdashery accessories, but he also covers some Orthodox paraphernalia, not to mention headgear of the Muslim and Buddhist persuasion.

Heavens to Murgatroyd, the section on the Pope's shoes alone is enough to make your head spin.

All in all, a very informative site. In connection with some of the topics I've mentioned here, I recommend the following pages:

He also covers some topics I can only hope one day to cover here (and maybe now there's no need to do so):

Of course, since he is a religious headgear specialist, please spend some time browsing his headgear pages under the PHILIPPI collection. These are in German, unlike the previous pages, but the pictures alone will say plenty. A good online translator can be helpful here, too.

Dear Mr Harju,
since December 2010 I publish from time to time some interesting posts on my new blog The Philippi Collection in English language.
