Titus, it looks to me as if it is a pom pon that has not been unbound yet.Team DB, I have photographs of a Master's in Theology receiving his biretta. It is black with a red pom and piping.
Well spotted, and my bad, it is indeed a tassel. But the two are relatively interchangeable. Andy, yes please! Send away.
Really? That's interesting, I didn't know that: I assumed the tassels were peculiar to a few orders (like the CSC). Thanks for the clarification.
I inherited a black biretta from our former Abbot. It has red piping and a red pom. Abbot David Cuthbert,OSB.
