New Liturgical Movement: Icons and Liturgical Objects from the Byzantine and Christian Museum in Athens

Afriend of mine, Mr Varfolomei Upart, recently visited the Byzantine and Christian Museum in Athens, Greece, and was kind enough to share with us these pictures of various liturgical items and icons, and some other items of interest. (I have found whatever information I could about these items from the Museum’s website, but not all of them are noted on it.) A child’s tunic, Coptic fabric of the 6th century decorated with human figures, animals and birds. Material of this kind was highly prized throughout the Mediterranean world, and often used for the decoration of churches. The leather shoes decorated with gold below are also Egyptian, of the 5th-8th century.
