In around the year 300, the Roman Catholic church was trying to get pagans to join the Catholic Church and become Catholics. One thing they did to try to make this happen was that they took some pagan traditions and tried to "Christianize" them by making them a part of the Roman Catholic religion and associating them with Christian "saints" instead of pagan gods. There was a pagan god worshipped at that time whose name was Dagon. His symbol was a hat shaped like a fish's mouth with a long piece of cloth that draped down over the back of the wearer, which was painted or embroidered to look like the body of a fish. You can see pictures relating to all of this in the Related Links section below. The Roman Catholic church made this hat a part of the attire of their bishops. At first, they even kept the spots on either side of the "fish head" which represented the fish's eyes. This design has been modified down through the ages and now only subtily resembles the fish head.
Arguably, the term mitre or miter is not in Scripture but the development of men. The Jewish priests wore a turban like headdress known as the 'Mitznefet' which had a gold plate on it called the 'Tzitz' which was inscribed with the words 'Holiness of YHWH.' This term however, is often translated into the Greek as 'mitre.' The mitre in a two-sided cone shaped head wear first worn by RC Church bishops and some abbots and them became popular in the Anglican Community, Lutheran, Orthodox and Eastern Christian faiths. Today, one may see this being worn by all Bishops, Cardinals and the Pope of the RC Church, etals.
