Hieratical Epimanikia

Epimanikia are liturgical vestments of the Eastern Orthodox Church and Eastern Catholic Churches. They are cuffs, one for the right hand and one for the left, worn by the Deacon, the Priest, and the Bishop. Made of thickened fabric, usually brocade, they lace onto the wrists to hold in place the wide sleeves of the Sticharion. A cross is usually embroidered or appliqued to the center of the epimanikia. They symbolize the tying of Christ's hands and wrists at the time He was flogged and serve to remind us that all things that we do with our hands, we should do for the glory of God.
