RE: [TheCostumersManifesto] Medieval Clerics
- Lisa - this may sound a little off the wall, but have you tried looking into
some Art History textbooks? The primary one I know of is by H.W. Janson -
its a biggie & very expensive, but I'm sure your local library or college
would have one.
You might focus on the Middle Ages, & look closely at what the artists of
the time were painting - I know there were alot of religious paintings that
encompassed clergy as well as Jesus & the Saints. This won't tell you the
fabrics used - but at least you could get an idea as to what the clerics

Subject: [TheCostumersManifesto] Medieval Clerics
I'm taking this great fashion class at school, and we're doing a "History of
Fashion" project. I was assigned the medieval era. I have been through
many search engines and costumes.org and I can't find much info on what
medieval clerics wore (I could only get basic stuff) and I can't find
anything on the fabrics used.
If anyone has any info, websites, etc, I would really appreciate it.

some movies set in the Medieval era might give a little
information. Don't know how accurate or if your professor
will accept them as sources though.

"I've noticed that famous composers in particular hang on for a long time. Deaf as posts, most of them, when Death comes calling. I expect some god somewhere finds that very amusing. It's their kind of a joke.*"
*And course, one that misfires. Deafness doesn't prevent composers from hearing the music. It prevents them from hearing the distractions.
