  3. It is the habit of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Basilian monks. The "strange hangy things" are a cloth representation of the legs of the goat, whose hide was once used to make the monk's cowl.

  4. Isn't this the same Ukrainian Basilian Order, which has suffered from much internal corruption?
