A Roman Collar Worn by Pope St. Pius X
The collar has a card describing what this item is as well as a wax seal authenticating it. It is a second class relic.
A traditional Roman collar is a stiff narrow band that acts as a white collar fastened at the back of the neck. It is worn by Catholic and some Protestant clergy.
A Roman collar is a distinctive symbol of the clergy.
This collar, however, is not the traditional Roman collar as we know it. Instead it is a fairly large piece of cloth with the basic collar. Additionally there is a cloth coming down over the chest.
This Roman collar is a unique and treasured part of this Collection.
