Calhga a sort of half-boot or stocking made of various material, serving for a defence against cold, and as such worn at times by soldiers; by monks, if infirm or exposed too cold; and by bishops in out door dress. The Rule of St. Ferreolus, quoted by Ducange, has an amusing passage forbidding the elaborate cross-gartering of these calige, out of mere coxcombry. The earliest writer who mentions the caligse as among the "sacred vestments" to be worn by bishops and cardinals is Ivo Carnotensis (died 1115). SEE BUSKIN.
