ORBIS CATHOLICVS: From Genova: the diocesan museum...

John Sonnen of Orbis Catholicus always has great photos from Rome and Italy generally, and he recently took some photographs from the Diocesan Museum in Genova.

What struck me was a particularly beautiful cope which I wanted to share with you. Of course, the reason for sharing images of vestments such as these is not merely to show a beautiful image -- as edifying as that is -- but also to potentially show forth some of our tradiiton and cultivate a taste for beautiful and historical forms of vestments.

It is to be hoped that this will then give priests and vestment makers fertile ground for pursuing their own vestment creations.
