Rochet & Chimere


      The chimere is worn by the bishops of the Anglican Communion as a component of their choir habit. A rochet is a white vestment generally worn by a Roman Catholic or Anglican bishop. In the Catholic Church, cardinals, bishops and certain other dignitaries use rochet to worn over the cassock. In the Anglican tradition, the rochet comes down almost to the hem of the cassock and its sleeves are pleated at the wrist.
