We spoke about the corona, and the communities of religious who still maintain it.

A different sort of corona…

    I suspected you referred to a tonsure, but wasn’t 100% sure. So I looked it up, and surely, the tonsure was mentioned. But surprise! The dictionary came up with another ecclesiastical use as well – and I’m sure there will be one or two readers here who’d be interested in that tidbit, so here goes:

    co?ro?na??/k??ro?n?/

    9. the tonsure of a cleric.
    10. Ecclesiastical. a gold-colored stripe around the lower edge of a clerical headdress, as of a miter.
