A Manual of Ecclesiastical Heraldry - Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian and Orthodox

The work gives a complete guide for entitlements of all Popes, Cardinals, Bishops and lesser clergy and dioceses of each obedience dealt with, including all relevant legislation and guidelines. It will assist all those called upon to design coats-of-arms for clerics, showing clearly those external ornaments to which each rank is entitled. It will also be invaluable for those seeking to identify arms used, laying out most of the variations met with. Michael McCarthy was a recognized expert in the field of ecclesiastical heraldry.
