Ecclesiastical Metropolitan Museum of Maroneias and Komotini.

Description: The creation of the collection of icons and ecclesiastical relics of the area of Komotini started in 1962 by Bishop Timothy of Maroneia. The collection was originally housed in the Metropolitan Building of Komotini. In 1987 it was moved to “The church of The Three Hierarchs". In 1996 it was decided to establish an ecclesiastical museum to permanently house the collection and it was decided to use the “Imaret”, an Ottoman monument which belonged to the Diocese of Maroneia and Komotini. The museum opened in 1999 and is under the direct supervision of the Metropolis of Maroneia and Komotini. The museum's collection includes sacred objects, such as icons, sacred vessels, priestly vestments, manuscripts, liturgical books and other sacred relics. The museum collection covers the period from the 16th century to the early 20th century.

Responsible for the management of the museum rests with the Holy Metropolitan of Komotini and Maroneia and the 12th Ephorite [Department] of Byzantine Antiquities.
