Based on what is believed to be the 14th century Sakkos of St. Gregory Palamas and now kept in the Vatican Museum, this remarkable sakkos features icons of the Transfiguration of Our Lord on the back, the Ascension on the front and the Communion of the Apostles on the sleeves.
In the theology of St.Gregory and the Hesychasts, the Transfiguration of the Lord and the uncreated Divine Light occupied a key place.
Ornamentally, this sakkos belongs to the HILANDAR style from which the remainder of the vestment is taken.
Any festal icon ( Nativity, Epiphany...) can be embroidered on the sakkos back and front and the same applies to the phenolion for priest.
A range of matching Chalice sets, altar covers, epigonatia and banners are readily available.
As with all our made to measure vestments, you can add any of the hand embroidered icons seen on our website to the various pieces of vesture.
If you do not see it on the website, please email us photographs of any specially requested icons you may wish to include.
We hand embroider all our icons, so everything is possible.
