Archiepiscopal Engolpions

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

The enamel making is from a technique that have been invented in 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 golden chain from the neck of the bishop on the chest at all times when either 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.

"...I received the 3 pins today in the mail which I recently ordered, and I would like to thank you very much for such beautiful items!!! I live in Texas and we have a small Greek community and Greek Orthodox church. I have to wait until November when we have our annual Greek Festival before I can purchase items such as these, and so I was so happy to have been able to order these without even leaving my home!! I have also placed an order for several icons for my children. I look forward to receiving them in the near future...."
