A Mitre is a double pointed cap, used in early times as a headdress for kings. Now it's a type of headgear known as the traditional, ceremonial head-dress of bishops and certain abbots in the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, and also bishops and certain other clergy in the Eastern Orthodoxy and Oriental Orthodoxy.
