Rites and Rituals of the Coptic Orthodox Church

Dictionary of Coptic Orthodox Church Terms and Terminology

Crown | Miter

 

* The bishop usually wears a golden crown during prayer as did the twenty-four heavenly priests (Rev. 4:4).

* This crown reminds us of the heavenly crown as well as Christ's crown of thrones.

* It is also symbolic of the authority given by the Lord to His high priest (2 Cor. 10:8), by which a patriarch becomes the steward of the secrets of Christ (1 Cor. 4:4).

* All through the previous generation deacons used to wear white crowns (caps) ornamented by icons and crosses, while they were praying the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
