Cleansing the visual palette...
To soothe our eyes, I thought it might be good to look at a vestment more pleasant than the previous entry. This is an exact copy of a 13th century chasuble worn by St. Thomas Becket. It has a surprisingly contemporary decoration, but is firmly traditional. Perhaps papal vestment designers could learn something by looking beyond the 1960’s.
