WHAT DOES KAMELAUKION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Kalimavkion

A Kalimavkion, or kalymmavchi, or kamilavka, is an item of clerical clothing worn by Orthodox Christian and Eastern Catholic monks or awarded to clergy. The kalimavkion is a stiff cylindrical head covering, similar to a stovepipe hat but without a brim. The kalimavkion is worn during services; at other times, the softer skufia is worn in its place. The specific shape and colouring will differ between the various ethnic traditions: ▪ In the Greek tradition, monks wear a simple black kalimavkion, covered by a black veil, but ordained clergy wear a kalimavkion with a flattened conical brim at the top. Hierodeacons remove the veil when they vest for services, but hieromonks do not. In the Greek tradition, nuns do not normally wear a kalimavkion, but rather just the veil. ▪ In the Russian tradition, priests and deacons, if awarded it, wear a kamilavka that is normally taller than the Greek style, widens as it rises, and is flat at the top. Monks wear a black kamilavka with black veil. Russian nuns also wear the kamilavka with veil. Hieromonks and hierodeacons wear the same black kamilavka and veil as non-ordained monastics.
