Yeah Flickr doesn't let you save their pictures that people upload for some odd reason.

Lot's of interesting pictures there, especially one's of the disciplina, they look painful :P

I don't want to help with something if it's technically illegal. Is it?  Because I'm sure there are a few ways to get around that.

Me too.  Either he took it down or Flickr did if they were copyright violations.  Too bad, I wanted to see them.

:(  they were there this morning... oh well.  I found it by googling "Pre-vatican II Carmelite habit", so I tried that again and it seems they are gone now. I hope he puts them back up...

Alright so paxveritas mentioning scary made me remember this.  And since this is now kind of a defunct thread I'm going to derail on purpose.

I saved this picture on my computer a long time ago and it has always intrigued me.  And also sort of creeped me out.  I know nothing about the picture except that it's labelled "Archfraternity of Mercy."  A quick google search didn't really give me anymore information other than they are either linked with or alternatively called "Black Penitents".  Anyone know anything about these guys?  And why they would be carrying an open black casket/body bag?  I don't even know if they're Catholic, but I found it on some random Catholic website.

The italian caption at the bottom actually reads "carrying an ailing man." So he's not dead.
As for that fraternity, there's an article on it in the italian Wikipedia:
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venerabile_Arciconfraternita_della_Misericordia_di_Firenze

1st part translated:

"The Venerable Confraternity of Mercy in Florence is a fraternity that takes care of transporting the sick, founded in Florence in the thirteenth century by Saint Peter Martyr. It is today the oldest confraternity to assist the sick and, in general, the oldest private institution in the world of volunteering is still active since its foundation, dated in 1244 according to the records stored in its archives. Its lay members, these brothers are still going to provide part [1] of transport sick in the city, and until April 2006 were still wearing the traditional black robe (from the XVII century), now reduced for use in ceremonies representation because of regulations inspired to road safety. The example of the Florentine confraternity there are numerous similar institutions throughout Italy and abroad."
