What is a "miter"?

A miter is a type of headgear that is traditionally worn by bishops and other high-ranking clergymen in various Christian denominations. The miter is a tall, pointed hat with two flaps or "lappets" at the back, which are meant to represent the two tablets of the Ten Commandments. The miter is often made of fine fabrics such as silk or satin and may be adorned with various religious symbols or embroidered designs. It is worn during certain religious ceremonies and represents the authority and high rank of the wearer within the church hierarchy.
