archbishop of Uppsala in the Church of Sweden,
wearing is a Swedish doctoral hat (top hat)


  1. It is not a clerical hat.
    It the hat conferred on doctors at the Swedish university upon their promotion to doctor, along with the doctoral ring.
    There is a buckle in front which varies with university and faculty, however, Doctors of Theology wear a black rosette.
    Doctors of Philosophy are conferred a laurel wreath at their promotion, but may wear the black hat later.

  2. .thanks for sharing
