Church Silver

  Pectoral crosses for priests appeared in Russian Orthodox Church quite recently.
Till the 18th century only bishops had the right to carry pectoral crosses. In the 19th century crosses with ornaments started to be given out to archpriests as the award.
The state decree from May 14, 1896 entered into the church use a cross being the distinction of any priest and celibate priest.

You can find such crosses in our collection.
