This dissertation sounds fascinating. Where can I get a copy of this?
An excellent current study is "L'Abito Ecclesiastico: Sua Valenza e Storia" by Michele De Santi,and I believe is a summary of his doctoral thesis in Canon law from the Pontifica Universita' Santa Croce. Great read and a very exhaustive study of the history, anthropology, theology and legal dimensions of clerical dress. - Fr. Benedict M La Volpe OFMConv
Thank you very much. I will definitely look that up.
I took the photo in the library of St. Paul's University in Ottawa.
I'll be happy when Google gets around to digitizing all these things so that I can read them on my kindle.
