Pontifical Georgian College

The principal theological seminary of the Imperial Roman Church
including the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate and the Angl
ican Patriarchate of Rome (Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church)


Doctoral regalia is used by both clerical and lay doctors and worn in the same manner. The regalia consists of a scarlet toga, worn open, over which
is worn a mozzetta in the colour of the programme of study. The colours are scarlet for Sacred Theology, Roman purple for Canon Law,
royal blue for Sacred Philosophy, and white for Sacred Letters. The mozzetta has a small attached hood on the back.
Laity wear the regalia over a morning suit. Clergy wear the regalia over the choir cassock (according to season).
The cap is black velvet of Renaissance style, with a red cord and tassels.

The Florentine Archfather as Regent uses the rochet and mozzetta according to the season and the zucchetto, with or without pontifical hat.
In the winter half-year, the winter toga, which is scarlet with large sleeves and white fur trim on the edge of the sleeves, may optionally
be added. When officiating or presiding at academic ceremonies, bishops wear the cappa magna with biretta.
The Archfather, however, uses the rochet and mozzetta or the grand choral habit.
Bishops and prelates may alternatively use house dress for less formal ceremonies.
