Collection: Liturgical Textiles x

Vestment of unknown provenance, probably Krefeld, Rhineland, matched to humeral veil of Pelican. The center medallion of woven silk depicts the triumphant Paschal Lamb, a symbol of the Risen Christ. The Latin text reads, ".Ecce Agnus Dei Quitollit Peccata Mundi." Latin text down sides and across bottom, "Iheus" (Jesus); "Maria" (Mary); "Ihoseph Patro[nus] Ec[c]l[esiae]" [Joseph, Patron of [our] church]."

The front orphreys contain the names, in Latin, of Jesus and Mary, and the two bronze morse (clasps) contain their images.
