Cap (or Bonnet


pileolus), in clerical dress. Cardinal Richelieu is said to be the first who wore the calotte, or cap, in France. The red cap is peculiar to the college of cardinals. The bonnet or cap worn by the Jesuits, Barnabites, Theatines, and by the Italians generally, is three-cornered and square, and worn without the cape. SEE VESTMENTS OF THE CLERGY.
