Wooden pendant amulet with Saint Athanasios

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

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.

Saint Athanasius the Great (18 January)

Saint Athanasios was born in 295 A.D. Endowed with rich spiritual gifts, he studied on his own in order to obtain a higher education, beyond the basic education he received.

His inclination towards the Church was evident from his youth. At the age of 25 he was ordained a deacon and at the age of 33 he was solemnly elected Patriarch of Alexandria. He receives a huge war from the heretical followers of Arius, but thanks to his strong faith in God and his great spirituality he manages to emerge victorious. In addition to the war of heretics, he faced temptations and hardships. He was sent into exile five times by Emperor Constantine II, who was a follower of Arianism.

Saint Athanasius was Patriarch of Alexandria for forty-six years. During his Patriarchy he was the “pillar of the Church” and the par excellence “father of Orthodoxy.
