I got one idea about the pope's mitre, how it represents a fish head. Maybe the Nommos (or Oannes) came to earth from far far away. They taught people things and were worshipped as gods. Then some people turned against the Nommos. Either they were jealous of the power of the Nommos or thought that the Nommos were unjust rulers.

They rose against the fishmen, killed them, ate them with the intent of trying to possess their powers, and then wore their skins on their bodies as if trying to become the Nommos. Perhaps the pope hat represents power usurped from the fishy demi-gods.
