The Papal Tiara

A few days ago, Fr Zed wrote an interesting piece about papal liturgy and its adjuncts … including the papal tiara.

In 1800, the papacy was under enormous threat. Pope Pius VI had been arrested by the forces of the Enlightenment, and had died in exile. Many thought that he had been the last pope.
