This is what the fanon looks like.
This one was worn by Pope St. John XXIII.
Now a second-class relic.
The fanon is a vestment worn by popes at Solemn High Mass since the 8th century.
It is silk, gold-and-white-striped, and circular. It goes over the head, is buttoned at the top in the front, and is a bit like a mozzetta.
Beautiful. I wonder how many of these are in existence?ReplyDelete
