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 first Christian period where 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 and their use symbolizes the persecutions of Christians during the first years and the Light of Christ.
