I noticed something when I was reading a news story this evening. The hat pictured below, worn by Sephardi Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar, in my opinion bears resemblance to the style of headgear I've seen in pictures of Coptic Orthodox clergy. (Picture from this
Is that a coincidence? Are these types of miters based on the style people were wearing in the Middle East and North Africa a long time ago? Who had them first, does anyone know- Christians or Jews?
I just find this interesting. Thanks.
