Description: The bishop's crown (also known as mitra or miter) is a traditional, ceremonial head-dress for bishops in Eastern Orthodoxy. The crown is worn on the head during Divine Liturgy and represents Christ the King. The MITRE (Gr. Mitra) serves as an emblem of power bestowed upon a minister of the Church. The mitra is properly worn by the bishop.

This is a light-weight bishop's head covering tailored in golden & silvery metallic brocade fabric and fully-lined inside for comfort. This bishop's mitre is richly ornamented with golden metallic-thread embroideries, rhinestones and beads in corresponding colors. This bishop's crown is surmounted by a golden-plated cross (dimensions: 1 1/6" x 2"), which is encrusted with stones. A tubular black leather carrying case is included in the price.

Liturgix was commissioned by the V. Rev. Archpriest Mikhail Edward Mikhail of St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church of Cleveland, Ohio, USA to make this custom mitre for His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark in honor of his 40th Anniversary as Pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church. The mitre designed by Bishoy Mikhail in collaboration with the Liturgix team features the monogram of Pope Shenouda's name in Coptic as well as hand-painted icons of Christ, St. Mark, Sts. Athanasius and Cyril of Alexandria, and St. John Chrysostom.

The monogram and the saints depicted on the hand-painted icons are requested by customer.

Because this mitre is made-to-order and because of the elaborate design and handwork, it takes 30 to 45 days for work completion.
