    and everything...all of that ludicrously over-the-top stuff to adorn yourself with...just like a real pope.

    •  That's all I see anymore on dkos (3+ / 0-)

      ads that is.  Chausables, albs, copes, surplices,  birettas, and kerry liquid.  All because I was reading a detective novel that used a vestament term and I wanted to know what it was.  Now that's all I see on the internet.  I'm becoming something of an expert, like I could tell you the diference between a cope and a chausable.  I went to a Unitarian church until I was 15 and then I quit.  I have zero experience with liturgical religion.  But I know the difference between a zucchetto and a biretta thanks to wonders of data mining and ad targeting.

        Fellini's Roma (1972)

        •  No, I have not seen it. (0+ / 0-)

          I am not much of a Fellini fan.  His films hard to follow for me and frequently disturbing. This snippet was no exception.  The garments in the fashion show make the ones in the ads, which I had thought so incredibly ornate, look positively drab.

          I liked the priests on roller skates and the nuns flapping their aprons. Also the mitres with flashing lights.
