The return of the Glory Doors of the iconostasis of the church of Saint Anastasios in the occupied Peristeronopigi of Famagusta will take place tomorrow, Thursday, September 16, according to an announcement that was issued by the Archdiocese of Cyprus.
The ceremony will take place at the Holy Archdiocese of Cyprus at 09:00, in the presence of all authorities involved.
It is recalled that the Glory Doors were located in Japan in the 1990s, at the Art College of Kanazawa.
Their repatriation was made possible after the coordinated efforts of the Department of Antiquities, the Embassy of the Republic in Tokyo, and the Church of Cyprus, with the competent authorities of the College of Art that owned the Glory Doors.
