The [[Patriarch]] of [[Church of Russia|Moscow]] and all Rus' wears a white klobuk that is rounded on top, decorated with embroidered images of [[seraphim]], and surmounted with a cross. This is sometimes called a cowl in English, although this is inexact.
In Orthodox Churches following the Byzantine tradition, all monastics and [[bishop]]s, regardless of rank, wear an identical plain black kalimafi and epikalimafi (veil). The only difference between this an and the slavic klobuk is that, for the klobuk, the two component parts are attached.
