ECCLESIASTICAL MUSEUM ΟF ERMOUPOLI

The ecclesiastical Museum of Ermoupoli was created from the initiative taken by the Metropolitan Bishop of Syros Dorotheos A’ in 1984 who managed to create an exceptional collection of ecclesiastical exhibits by sending the Archimandrite at the time being and current Bishop of Syros Dorotheo B΄ to collect various icons, sacred relics, utensils and pontificals from the churches and temples of the remaining islands of the metropolis. The Museum is housed in a building owned by the Sacred Metropolis and has been enriched over time with more pontificals, sacred relics and jewelry. The Museum also houses a laboratory for creative activities and for the expression of children and offers hagiography lessons on the ground floor of the Temple of St. Nicholas that was later transferred to another privately owned place of the Sacred Metropolis along with the Theognosia bookstore near the Temple. Cycladic folklore items were also added to the exhibits and are now available for the public while the visit is free.
