The antimins (from the Greek Antimension: “instead of the table”) is one of the most important furnishings in many Eastern Christian liturgical traditions. It is a rectangular piece of cloth, or linen or silk, usually decorated with representations of the Descent of Christ from the Cross, the Deposition, the Evangelists, the Angels, the Madonna.
It is not permitted to celebrate the Eucharist without an antimins. The antimins is unfolded and shown only during the Divine Liturgy, before the anaphora. At the end of the Liturgy, the antimins is folded in thirds, and then in thirds again, so that when it is unfolded the creases form a cross.
The dimensions of the cloth are: width cm 69; height cm 58. Dimensions with the nice mecca gilded frame: width cm 87; height cm 76.
