Holy Grail information.
« on: February 15, 2011, 04:12:23 PM »
My friend has this Holy Grail or Holy Cup. http://i43.tinypic.com/2dgwdxh.jpg and in the end of it is whrited this text like it apear on this video http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=s0y6ig&s=5. The transcription of the text is here http://i40.tinypic.com/xmlbup.jpg.

I translated this to a forum:

"ΚΑΤΕΣΚΕΥΑΣΘΗ ΤΟ ΙΕΡΟΝ ΤΟΥΤΟ ΠΟΤΗΡΙΟΝ ΔΙΑ ΣΥΝΔΡΟΜΗΣ ΤΟΥ ΕΥΓΕΝΕΣΤΑΤΟΥ ΑΡΧΟΝΤΟΣ ΚΥΡΙΟΥ ΦΙΛΩΝΟΣ ΕΠΙΤΡΟΠΕΥΟΝΤΟΣ ΑΞΙΟΠΡΕΠΩΣ ΕΝ ΤΩ ΙΕΡΩ ΝΑΩ ΤΟΥ ΑΓΙΟΥ ΔΗΜΗΤΡΙΟΥ ΚΑΤΑ ΛΕΒΑΔΕΙΑΝ ΠΑΡΑ ΧΕΙΡΟΣ ΝΙΚΟΛΑΟΥ
ΕΝ ΕΤΕΙ ΑΩΑ

This holy grail was made with a donation from his excellency nobleman Mister Philon  acting respectably as churchwarden of the Holy Church of St Demetrius in Levadia  made by Nicholas
In the year 1801"



And i want to know Where Holy Church of St Demetrius in Levadia is located. Any contact information, email address, or website would be great. Thank you.

What your friend has have is a Sacred Chalice which has been used in the Divine Liturgy and cannot be used for anything else without being sacrilege.
The "Church of St. Demetrios in Levadia" is not in Seattle Washington as you link to, it is in Greece (that's a different country to the USA). Unfortunately many sacred objects are regularly stolen from Orthodox Churches in Europe and the Middle East; heres a recent example:
http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,28156.0.html .
The pop star Boy George recently returned an Icon to the Church in Cyprus from where it was stolen:
http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,33120.0.html
Here are the contact details for the Bishop of the Church this Sacred Chalice has been taken from if your friend wishes to do the honourable thing and return it:

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Try to get it returned to the church.  It will be very important to them.
If you want I will pay your friend for it, and get it returned.  PM me if he wants to do this.

I will be going to Greece in August and know some Greek clergy who can help me on a fun adventure in history.   If you choose to do this and I can't find the church, I'll just leave it with a Greek Bishop over there.   Just an offer.
