Monastic Crests?
« on: January 30, 2015, 07:40:51 AM »
This recently into ROCOR received monk F. Symeon presents himself with a "monastic crest", see the links below.

Does such a thing really exist (as a tradition)? I mean in Eastern as well as in Western (Roman-Catholic) monasticism. I have never heard of it, exept for prelates.

Fr. simon has been Orthodox for a bit over a month (no idea what had he been before). Give him some time to cool down.

"True"  Orthodox.  It's still weird that a monk would want his own crest.  Even RC monks do not have their own crests.

I was thinking this thread was going to be about some new wave monastic headgear resembling an actual crest.

I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

Favouritance towards crests, orders, aristocracy and honorary doctorates from web universities is a feature of vagantes. looks like he kept it from before of his reception.
