How's about some color?

Yep, thaaaaaat's right. I got some more cappa magna photos in color. Have fun!

This unidentified prelate's chaplain is friendly enough to present the capello in full splendor.

Andras Rohracher, prince-archbishop of Salzburg, Primas Germaniae. The prince-archbishops of Salzburg have the privilege to wear cardinalatial red.

Emile Cardinal Leger, archbishop of montreal. Of course, the photo was taken before this prince of the Church stepped down from his archiepiscopal seat to become a missionary in Africa. Sorry for the dots and cracks, the picture is from the cover of an old magazine.

Double treat! Julius Kardinal Döpfner, archbishop of Munich (back) and Corrado Bafile, German nuncio (front).

That's all, folks!

Another superb post! Great blog, keep up the great work! Catholics are naturally visual, and the Church now starves us with the new "style". Thanks,

The unidentified prelate is cardinal, seen from:
1. the red cardinal's roman hat
2. the gold tassels on the sash
3. the red wool biretta.
The cappa 'looks' purple. But old photos can be deceiving. Combined with no 3, this could mean it is a cardinal in lutto.
