Just received word that my biretta has been included in the work "Sammlung Phillipi", the ultimate book on clergy headwear, by Dieter Phillipi.
'"This hardcover book showcases the entire Philippi headwear collection
and more in over 1,000 fascinating and exclusive photographs.
The Philippi headwear collection is currently the world’s largest
collection of clerical, ecclesiastical and religious head coverings—
and is unique in both its scope and size. Whether they are ceremonial
or worn as a part of everyday life, you’ll fi nd examples of
headwear from every religious persuasion around the globe. In addition,
the collection includes photos of 116 religious objects, making
it a truly fascinating study of diverse cultures and traditions."
