Description

Carved wooden hanging amulet with Saint Minas

A wonderful wood-carved amulet from Mount Athos with a relief representation of Agios Minas.

It is an elegant & handy handiwork made in linden or cherry wood, by monks with great skill in wood processing. In a relatively small size and with a well-thought-out construction (thanks to the cord on top), it can be placed anywhere in the house, in the car or even in a bag, so that the believer feels that he always has the Grace and protection of the Saint close to him.

At the same time, it can be a very beautiful gift for the people we love.

On the back is the exact name of the representation.

Agios Minas

Saint Minas was a military officer and served in Cotyaeum in Phrygia under Diocletian (284-305) and Maximian (286-305). Because he did not tolerate idolatry, he retired to the mountains of the region, where he lived by fasting and prayers. In fact, it is characteristic that in the ascetic life he was followed by other soldiers friends.

During the persecution of the Christians he

went down to Kotyaio to strengthen the persecuted. There he was arrested, confessed his faith in Christ and martyred by beheading. Christians took his dead body and buried it, while later his sacred bones were transported and buried in Egypt.
Agios Minas is the patron saint of Heraklion, Crete and other cities of Greece.
