The mysteries of the Orthodox Church are considered to be God-given, and they are considered necessary for the salvation of man according to the Christian religion. Divine worship is essentially a spiritual process, which nevertheless requires a set of objects such as vessels, simple natural materials, etc., without the existence of which the celebration of mysteries is impossible. The importance of their use results from the multiple roles these objects play, which in addition to their practical function, have a symbolic meaning, while at the same time they convey the divine grace in the soul of the believer.

In the Orthodox churches of Greece, we can identify objects of outstanding beauty, as well as some humbler ones designed for everyday use. The totality of these objects serve the liturgical life of the Church. Nonetheless, ecclesiastical art has on several occasions borrowed techniques and artistic styles from secular art in a creative way for the construction and decoration of these objects.
