Temples

The Temple is a wooden or marble structure which separates the main church and the Holy Step with three gates, the Central or Royal Doors and the North and the South or the Deacons's Doors.

After the Iconoclasm, the hitherto low Temple evolved into the high Temple as we know it today, with large icons placed next to each other. In particular, at the top of the Temple is the icon of Christ, the Virgin Mary, St. John the Baptist, the Archangels Michael and Gabriel and the icon of the Patron Saint of the temple.

Its symbolism is attributed to the Christian continuity by the veil of the Temple in Jerusalem which was torn by the death of Christ.

The Ecclesiastical Temples of our collection are wood-carved constructions, with elaborate designs of the Christian faith and tradition. They are carved with detail and dexterity to decorate any Holy Temple.

"...After a very long day caring for my three grandchildren, my wife and daughter and I arrived home to find a very tidy, compact crate sitting on our doorstep. I felt as if I didn't want to open it at first, fearing I had possibly ordered the wrong thing or the item would be damaged. But,as usual, my wife Presbytera Elizabeth could not wait any longer and we both opened the crate. What a joy it was to see the font exactly as I had envisioned without one scratch or dent on it. Glory be to God! Your packaging was PERFECT and protected everything beautifully. I cannot thank you enough for caring for our humble needs in such a personal way. God bless you for your labors. I will sneak the font into the church so that everyone can share the surprise and joy upon seeing it for the first time. And thank your craftsmen who hammered and turned the copper so beautifully. Everything is beautiful! Thank you again and again...."
