R.J. Toomey Zucchetto
Availability: In stock
The zucchetto is a small, form-fitting ecclesiastical cap that is worn by clerics and higher clergy. It began as a form of the Greek pilos, but was altered during the early Middle Ages to keep clerics' tonsured heads warm. The name is derived from the Italian word for a small gourd as it resembles half a pumpkin. In appearance, the zucchetto is similar to a Jewish kippah or yarmulke, though its use is very different.
