Liturgical Boutiques

My attention has recently been drawn to some discussion on The Rad Trad blog, concerning 'liturgical fetishes' and 'liturgical boutiques'. Please see this link for a direct route to the boutique.

For the benefit of those among us who are connoisseurs of liturgical apparel, rescuers of period vestments, and similar, here are a few links.

If you want to get ahead, get a biretta at Domus Birettarum (a small selection shown below - please note the rather fetching pink, tartan and camouflage versions on the right :-) ).

Those with a recent lottery win, or similar windfall (but not quite enough for the purchase of a Minor Basilica), might like to visit Luzar Vestments - or just to admire some of the stuff he has in stock.

Finally, the more avant garde  followers of fashion might like to look here - just think carefully before appearing in public. :-)

  1. Wonderful Post, Matthaeus. Many thanks.

    I'm very interested in the camouflaged Biretta. I did have one, previously, but I put it down in the garden and now I can't find it.

    I will be contacting the Biretta company and requesting 1,500 Birettas for use in the Aldershot and Catterick areas.

  2. Zephy,

    Thank you for your interest in the camouflage birettas: you may also wish to consider completing your ensemble with a co-ordinating chasuble - I am sure that other items such as tunicle, dalmatic, etc., could also be provided, or perhaps a camouflage mitre for the bishop who wants to keep a low profile? ;-)

  3. O my Giddy Aunt !!!

    There ACTUALLY IS a Camouflaged Chasuble !!!

    I can imagine RAF Chaplains, speaking into their microphone thingies: "Angels Twelve", etc.
