MARIDAT, Petrus de [pseud. of Theophile Raynaud]
1655 1ed Treatise on HATS Jesuit Raynaud Bishop Headwear Jewish Rabbis Crowns
Lugduni: J. Champion et C. Fourmy, 1655. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Theophile Raynaud was a 17th-century Jesuit theologian who is known for his extensive portfolio of religious based works. Curiously, he also published an interesting treatise on the history of hats! 'Tractatus de Pileo' covers a wide variety of topics relating to hats and headpieces, and because of his relationship to the church, Raynaud extensively discusses the roles of headwear within the church and religious ceremonies. He covers the sacred hats worn by Catholic bishops and cardinals, hats worn by Jewish rabbis, French royal crowns, female headdresses, and much more. [Attributes: First Edition]
