There seems to be some confusion going on with regard to the epigonation/palitsa and the nabedrennik and which side which is worn on. Specifically, this sentence: if the epigonation/palitsa has also been awarded, it is worn on the right side — it has an ambiguous antecedent. Does it refer to the epigonation or the nabedrennik? I'm pretty ignorant on this, so I'm not going to rollback the changes here. I just need someone with knowledge to disambiguate the sentence so we don't have a right/left edit war. --Basil 17:39, 24 Jan 2005 (CST)
Pictures for the vestment-challenged?
Is it possible to have pictures of some of these items? As someone very unfamiliar with the Eastern Orthodox church -- likely several hours drive from one, these things are very hard to picture.
- Yeah, I've been meaning to grab my digital camera and shoot some photos for these articles. There are certainly plenty of pics online, but one can't just grab one and use it without permission. --Rdr. Andrew 17:17, 8 Feb 2005 (CST)
- I'll try to get pictures with permission for use, for the Western Rite vestments. On a side note - would it be possible to post more than one picture where the Greek and Russian styles differ (or the Romanian, such as with the Skufia?) - Aristibule
- Sure, you/we can post as many pictures in an article as we want. Thanks for your work! Fr. John
RE: Non-Liturgical Western Vestments
I've updated to reflect that indeed the Cap and Tippet are used among Western Rite Orthodoxy. Also, the little 'burn' on the Old English surplice, which not only is used by ROCOR, but I have seen in use at AWRV parishes - not all AWRV parishes use the short Roman lace surplices. - Aristibule
