To fiddle, or not to fiddle ...


Shawn Tribe's article "On the Origin and Development of Vestments (Parts I & II)," posted July 29 and 31, 2006 on his blog, The New Liturgical Movement, has me rethinking my preference for the Roman chasuble. The original form of the conical chasuble (as shown in the illumination,) seems so much more graceful than the ridged Roman vestment. Although, the desert heat makes the fiddleback style seem much more comfortable.

The article got me thinking too, Father. I've always seen the Roman vestment as a sign of traditionalism. Maybe it really isn't so markedly one.
