Field guide for patriarchs

Excuse, please, a light moment. I recommended an Orthodox Church of America church today to somebody I know well, and that led to a few minutes looking at Eastern Orthodox websites.

Found one about the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople’s recent visit to North America. What I didn’t expect was a little page giving the proper names for the distinctive parts of his vesture. Reminds me a bit of one of those field guides for birds.

See for yourself.

  1. *giggle* After that link, I have a vision of assembling multiple images from the series into a Flash animation to the tune of RuPaul’s “Supermodel.” Work, cover girl!

    Irreverent, I know. :D
