The miter (or mitre) is a pontifical insignia worn by the prelates of the Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican Church, be they: abbots, bishops, archbishops, cardinals and the Pope. It is the covering of the head of the prelate in a liturgical ceremony. It consists of two pieces of firm / flexible material (kind of pentagonal), in which a fabric is applied that is sewn from the sides and lined inside. The two upper ends (cusps) are free when the sides are compressed allowing to be placed on the head. Infulae (lappets), are the two pendant bands at the back.
Since the Second Vatican Council, the mitre has been reduced to two types:
1.- The precious mitre, which is used on all occasions when the simple mitre is not required.
2.- The simple mitre or White, that is used with black or purple vestments, or when the bishop is not the main concelebrant.
Mitre (or miter) sizes are according to the head circumference measurement.
