Reader Carl from Belgium was kind enough to send me some photos of canons from that country with their distinct fur cape. Though almost extinct today, some chapters still wear this wicked habit on very special occasions, i.e. the canons of Namur.
I was planning on doing a post on Belgian canons sometimes anyway, and now is as good a time as any. The first four pics are Carl's (Thanks a lot!), the rest are from my collection:
First two historical portraits
This is a portrait of Monsignor de Baets
And here we have a canon named Nobels.
Here we see the chapter of Namur in choir dress.
Another historical portrait, this time of a canon from Ghent
Another canon from Ghent
And here we have the choir dress of the canons of Ghent in all his splendor.
