ZAMORA Semana Santa - NOT American KKK - but this is where the KKK got the inspiration for their costumes. This is a Catholic Procession in Spain held during Holy Week. Members of Lay Brotherhoods wear the conical cap and face covering (in different colors for each Order) as a sign of penitence. Peaked caps like this were also placed on the guilty during the Inquisition. It is where the dunce caps in school days of old came from! (How fitting that the KKK chose a symbol of shame!)
