Panagias-encolpions

In keeping with the dignity of a Bishop’s position in the Greek Orthodox Church hierarchy, Istok Church Supplies offers a versatile collection of Bishop enkolpions and panagias that a bishop wears all the time. 
 
Encolpians and Their Significance
Ornamentation is an important part of a Bishop’s vestment that conveys the high ranking and importance of this Orthodox Church official. Only Bishops are authorized to wear encolpions and panagias. The tradition may be originated in olden times when they had to travel and the lockets were used to communicate their high office.
 
 Encolpions and panagias are medallions that are worn over clothes and displayed at chest level. Panagias have a depiction of the Most Holy Theotokos and are most often elaborate in their designs. Made from metals such as brass, they usually feature stones, enamel work, intricate filigree work and gold or silver gilding for added beauty. They are usually used for non-Lenten services. Simple and elegantly hand crafted wooden encolpions are generally worn by Bishops during Lenten time. 
 
Encolpian Sets for Bishops
We have a wide variety of Greek Orthodox Bishop encolpions and encolpion sets. Sets consist of a hand carved wooden panagia along with a hand carved cross made from solid wood.  These items are specially made by master craftsmen well versed with the centuries old traditions of the Greek and Russian Orthodox Churches. 
 
We offer Bishop enkolpions and panagias to suit a wide variety of budgets and tastes. Whether you are looking for something simple or extremely elaborate, you will find it at our online store. Fine enamel images of the Theotokos, decorated with semi- precious stones and having detailed patterns are powerful representations of one of the most revered symbols in Orthodox Christianity.  Many designs feature a small pendant hanging from the bottom. Encolpions and panagias come in various shapes including round, square, oval and rhombus.
