Feast Day Ripidion

Beautiful ripidia are brought out for special feast days and placed across the back of the Holy Table.

Προηγοῦνται δὲ τούτου οἱ Χοροὶ τῶν Ἀγγέλων, μετὰ πάσης Ἀρχῆς καὶ ἐξουσίας, τὰ πολυόμματα Χερουβείμ, καὶ τὰ ἑξαπτέρυγα Σεραφείμ, τὰς ὄψεις καλύπτοντα, καὶ βοῶντα τὸν ὕμνον· Ἀλληλούϊα, Ἀλληλούϊα, Ἀλληλούϊα.

And there do precede him the choirs of Angels, with every Principality and Authority, the many-eyed Cherubim, and the six-winged Seraphim, covering their faces, and crying out the hymn: Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.

    Dear father Justin
    Χριστός Ανέστη !
    I would like to ask how old are the ripidia, and are they from Greece?
    Thanks a lot for the beautiful photograph.
