[3]The precious liturgical vestments

In the church of Madonna della Stella there is a collection of ancient liturgical vestments, clothes worn by the priest during celebration of the services.
Some of the precious fabrics of the vestments were donated by rich lords who traded fabrics, some of which came from Egypt.
The fabrics, now disused, were remodelled by the cloistered nuns, who supported themselves with these sartorial works by making wonderful priestly clothes enriched with gold thread embroidery.
