Clericals and Vestments
« on: Apr 22, 10, 06:57:37 pm CDT »

So I am looking for adequate period choices for both portraying a cleric in day to day and as well proper vestments for performing services and rites. Any Links to good sources or actual clothing bits we can be someone sure is accurate?

Well, you can get some ideas by examining religious artwork, especially statuary from the time period.  Traditional Franciscan wear is probably accurate for the day to day work garb used by most monastaries.  The more formal dominican outfits would probably come closer to the ecclesiatical wear used on other occasions.

Just a few thoughts.

Hubba.  I'm more of a Christina Hendricks fan myself.

As Theo said - the day to day monk's robe has not changed all that much from the Renaissance.

Look at this from 1591  http://www.artchive.com/web_gallery/C/Cornelis-Cornelisz-Van-Haarlem/The-Monk-and-the-Nun-1591.html  (Look!  even found one with boob!  Gotta take care of my guys!   :-* )

Anyway - the robe looks like any mental image of a 'monk's robe' that we have.  There are tons of patterns out there.

For cerimonial vestments - are you going Catholic, I assume?  You can google 'renaissance church vestments' and come up with a slew of portraits.

There is a Catholic Shop in Geen Bay that sells vestments but I can't remember the name of it.  I think its the Casker Company.  there should be something in the Chicago area.  There is a Lutheran Seminary on the University of Chicago grounds.

For Current vestments there is a place close to me. I suppose I could also see if they can obtain historical garments
