An exhibition of relics of the XII-XV centuries will be opened in the dungeon of the Garrison Church.

The terrace of the Swiss Hotel overlooks the church.

On May 6th, at 3 p.m. an exhibition of Christian relics of the 12th-15th centuries "Ars sacra: Journey to the Middle Ages" was opened in the museum-dungeon of the Garrison Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul of the Lviv Archdiocese of the UGCC.

 

The opening ceremony was attended by: Bishop of the Curia of the Kyiv-Halych Supreme Archdiocese, Bishop Stepan Sus; the rector of the Garrison Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, the head of the Center of the Military Chaplaincy of the UGCC LA Fr. Taras Mikhalchuk; management of Lviv city and regional authorities, clergy, public figures, Lviv patrons and collectors of antiquities.

"Ukrainian culture has an extremely rich ancient church tradition of the Ukraine-Russia period. Lviv collectors managed to save unique relics. These relics are made of metal - a technique of creating relief images on various metals. The art of metal plastics today is little studied and underestimated.

The items saved by collectors are a unique testimony to the history of spirituality and the formation of Christianity in Ukraine. These things were preserved despite the war, the destruction and looting of churches, looting of shrines. It is time to return the relics to the Church. Unique Christian relics will be donated by Lviv collectors to the Garrison Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul of the UGCC, "the organizers said.
