Ever wonder how university graduation caps and mortarboards became part of the academic outfit? There is an interesting backstory to this interesting addition to present-day academic attire, which we will explore in the lines below.
To begin with, during the medieval times, or the Middle Ages, caps, mortarboards or tams were available in variant forms including the skull-caps, beefeaters, cappa, headdress, tudor bonnet, barret, pileus and biretum, etc. How this type of headgear found their way into the higher education centres and medieval universities and the schools/colleges based in Europe is worth knowing.
Graduation Caps, as a form of headgear, have been the reason behind controversies, much more than most other pieces of academic attire. It is still unclear how the headdress became part of the academic outfit. However, while tracing history it has been found that the headdress started being used in this field on occasions that marked an individual receiving the master's degree. The recipient would receive from their teacher an insignia which included a book, a black cappa, and a ring. They would also receive a doctor's magisterial cap (either the biretta or pileus) on their head along with a kiss of peace.'
