Κειμηλιαρχεῖον
« on: August 23, 2018, 06:47:56 AM »
Guys a question regarding church nomenclature.
What's the English word for κειμηλιαρχεῖον?
Kειμηλιαρχεῖον is an institution, usually under the auspices of the local Metropolis, where old Liturgical objects, vestments and Liturgical books are kept  and conserved. The public can visit, it's like an Ecclesiastical museum.
Thanks.

I assume the objects are no longer being used? If there's an English/ western word for it I've never heard it and it's likely long out of use. We'd probably just say, "the church museum" or something like that.

If you're doing translation, what about "metropolitan sacristy"?
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

“Alpha60’s House” is the American English phrase, perhaps the British have a single word for it...

I knew not, that our own Alpha were a Metropolitan. Godspeed!

The concept probably does not exist in the Anglophone world.   The nearest equivalents might perhaps be "repository", "sacristy" or "treasury" (many historic British religious foundations have a treasury in which may be found items of historical interest as well as contemporary items of value).

Yeah, I would opt for "sacred treasury" or "sacred repository" if you were translating.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.

What's the difference between sacristy and treasury?

I always thought that sacristy had the connotation of "objects that are still in use."

Yeah, a sacristy involves things that are still being used in the services. "Treasury" is a much broader word that mean lots of things, both ecclesial and secular.
