The History








Red Cope. Embroidered with gold.

The most important liturgical vestments kept in the Vatican Treasury include some complete groups (composed of cope, chasuble and planets, stoles, maniples, veil, etc.), such as: the eighteenth century vestments in fabric embroidered with gold which were made for Pope Benedict XIV; the "Vestments of the Bride", which are called so because in the height of the eighteenth century, they were donated by a Roman princess who sacrificed her wedding dress for them; and the so-called "Chinese Vestments", also from the eighteenth century, which were made in a missionary site in southern China.
