Archiepiscopal Engolpions

The Archiepiscopal Engolpion is considered as emblem of the  Bishop degree in the Orthodox Church and has been established by the Royal Decree in 1856. It is usually oval-shaped with an enameled icon that shows either the Christ Blessing or the Virgin Mary (in which case the engolpion is called «Panagia»).

The enamel making is from a technique that has been invented during the Byzantium. The icon is set against a gold or silver plated background decorated with semi-precious gems, in a very detailed pattern to bring a very beautiful and artistic outcome following the Orthodox Tradition.

The engolpion symbolizes the value of pure heart and the seal of confession and faith. Is alleged with a golden chain from the neck of the bishop to stay on the chest at all times whether divine or not.

All Archiepiscopal Engolpions are accompanied by a silver or gold plated chain and are shipped in a beautiful velvet box.

There are 18 Archiepiscopal Engolpions that have a pair at the collection of Pectoral Crosses (http://www.oramaworld.com/en/c/4000_3250/Pectoral_Crosses) and photos of these Crosses are shown at the relevant pages of the Archiepiscopal Engolpions.
