Cappa Magna

Cappa Magna is a rich flowing cloak or covering of silk, in some respects resembling the cope, worn by bishops and other dignitaries on state occasions. For bishops, the color of it is purple; for cardinals, scarlet. Its use has been abandoned in the Church of England, though the archbishops still sometimes assume a cope with a train borne by pages.
