THE CAP OF CAHORS: During the time of Jesus, the heads of the deceased were covered with a cloth cap. Said to have been retrieved by the apostles after the Resurrection, this relic remained in Jerusalem for nearly 800 years before being given to Charlemagne, who then gave it to the bishop of Cahors, France. Today, it is kept in the chapel of Saint Gausbert in Cahors.
