Ecclesiastical Garb and Religious Personas in the SCA

Over vacation this past week I was going though the hundreds of pictures from my SCA events. I happened to be going through a new book (Medieval Costume in England and France by Mary G. Houston) and noticed that for all SCA folks like decorative garb not may take on the roles of the religious kind. The men in particular have some extravagant robes as archbishops and priests. At all of the Arts and Sciences displays and competitions I’ve been to I’ve never seen someone reproduce an Ecclesiastical garment. Perhaps it’s something that will be on my to-do list for projects…

I also think that this book is worth reading for anyone who are looking for depictions of the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries. There are plates and drawings but not on every page. I would say that this would probably be a good book for those of you that can draft patterns from pictures or enlarge example drawings on their own. There is a lot of great information in the book though and worth reading!
