 Presenting Liturgical Shrouds or Epitaphios from Istok 
Icons are a very important part of the Christian religion. This includes the Epitaphios which is used during the services of the Holy Week. The Shrouds of Christ and Theotokos are venerated in separate rites. They showcase blessed figures in the horizontal position framed with beautifully patterned embroidery in rich colors. The scenes are created as depicted in the Gospel and are almost always illustrated with paint or embroidered onto cloth.
The Significance of the Liturgical Shrouds or Epitaphios
These Epitaphios form a vital part of church rites to mark the death and later resurrection of Christ. The embroidered traditional Shroud forms the basis of these rites, where they are carried from the altar to the table in the center of the church or various other positions. They are also venerated by the congregation as they seek blessings during certain services. These are important rituals in which the Shrouds take on the central role.
