The word inflame came to our language as ínfula . Usually used in the plural (nipples ), the term refers to the ribbons that hang from the back of the miter , the hat worn by the Christian bishops.
In ancient times, the ínfula was a white tape with strips on the sides that were used to wrap the head the Roman and Greek priests. This accessory was sometimes used on the head of people who were delivered in sacrifice.
Currently the ínfulas are part of the miter. A miter is a touches (garment that goes in the head) that, in solemn events, the bishops use, the archbishops and other ecclesiastical leaders.
The ínfulas are born in the back of said touch and descend in the back of the neck. They can exhibit the decor of the miter or have a cross as ornamentation.
The idea of ínfulas appears, in the colloquial language, to refer to the boasting or the conceits of an individual. Whoever has omens, in this way, feels superior to others and reflects it through his vanity or sufficiency .
