Easter in Patmos – Created by George Ts. , Thomas Ts. , Konstantinos Sk.

The island of Patmos

On the island of Patmos, every Holy Thursday at noon, people witness the revival of the ceremony when Jesus Christ washed the feet of His Disciples before the Last Supper. It takes place in Xanthou Square, in front of the town hall where the scene has been set up early. The roles of the 12 Apostles are played by monks or men of clergy and the role of Christ is played by the abbot of the Theologian Monastery, while the role of the Evangelist is played by a clergyman.  The representation takes place in a strict monastic atmosphere.



Palm Sunday

The people of Patmos make palm leaves that look like embroidery either in the shape of a cross or in the shape of a fish - they share with the lovers of the churches of the island. Going to the top of the divine drama.

Holy Wednesday in Patmos

On Holy Wednesday, locals and visitors go to their parishes, to be "soiled" by the priest with the holy oil, to heal their soul and body.



Holy Thursday in Patmos

 On Holy Thursday, what attracts our attention and awe is the special ceremony of Holy Wash Bowl that takes place in the Country of Patmos in the morning, according to Byzantine traditions and is an event that takes place only in Patmos and Jerusalem
