Greek Monastic Priest
Photo 15 from my trip to the folklore museum in Crete, Greece.
He’s a monastic priest – a priest-monk or hieromonk (I am told you can tell that by the headgear). He’s holding a gospel book – one with the printed gospels for reading in church each day. You can tell he’s a priest because he’s wearing a cross – bishops wear medallions showing Christ and his mother, as in the photo I posted early. This photo was taken at the folklore museum in Asteri near Arkadi Monastery in Crete.
