Hieratical Epimanika are liturgical vestments of the Orthodox and the Catholic Church. They are cuffs, one for the right and one for the left hand, worn by the Deacon, the Priest and the Bishop. They are made of dense fabric and tied to the wrists to hold the wide sleeves of the stichari. Hieratical Epimanika symbolizes the tying of Christ's hands and wrists as He was flogged and reminds us that everything we do with our hands must be for the glory of God.
The Hieratical Epimanika of our collection are embroidered with gold thread and have on their surface images of the Orthodox Church.

"...I would like to let you know that I have received the icons today. Very few words can describe my awe at these venerable creations. I don't feel that my home deserves them and that they will find a better place in church. However I cannot think of any better legacy that I would one day leave to my family. Many thanks to you and, your Iconographers and crafts men who worked so hard to make them. May the Lord bless your lives...."
