The Sacrifical Mitre of Chinese Emperor, as Pontifex Maximus of the Nation

Fig. 50: The Sacrifical Mitre of Chinese Emperor, as Pontifex Maximus of the Nation

From HAGER, on Chinese Hieroglyphics, B xxxv. in British Museum, copied for me [Hislop] by Mr. Trimen's son, Mr. L. B. Trimen. The words of Hager, are:- "In like manner the sacrificial mitre of the Chinese Emperor (the Pontifex Maximus of his nation), which was of old represented under this form [and then the above figure is given](- Philos. Transact. at tab. 41-), bearing a strong resemblance to the Roman Episcopal Mitre," &c., &c.
