Miter with the Resurrection of Christ and Coronation of the Virgin


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description A miter is a headdress worn by bishops during the liturgy. The inscription on this one states that it was made in 1724 by Abraham of Caesarea (present-day Kayseri, Turkey) and presented to the Monastery of the Virgin Mary near Ankara by the city's Armenian bishop Moses. The depictions of Christ's Resurrection on one side and the Coronation of the Virgin on the other were inspired by western European prints.
