Vigil Candles

Vigil oil candles ("καντήλια" in Greek) are usually oil lamps that light up with the help of a wick floating on the oil. Their use dates back to the early Christian period, when worship took place at night and a means of lighting was necessary.

To this day, vigil candles are an integral part of the Liturgy. They are used at home but mainly in the area of ​​the Holy Temple, symbolizing both the persecutions of Christians during the early years and the Light of Christ.

In this category, you can find handmade vigil oil candles and multi-vigil oil candles, as well as auxiliary items such as brackets for oil candles, cenotaph oil candles, home oil lamps, wicks and floats, and oil candle replacement cups.
