Prosphora Seal

3 Customer Reviews Write a Review

Prosphora (Greek for "offering") is holy bread prepared for use in the Divine Liturgy. This bread is traditionally prepared and baked by members of the local parish church, a continuation of the ancient practice in which parishioners would bring the bread and wine, and the deacons would select the best for use in the Liturgy. The bread is always leavened, because Our Lord used ordinary bread (artos) in the Last Supper. Yeast is a symbol of life, and the risen dough represents the Resurrection.

The bread is stamped with a special seal which is full of symbolism. The center portion, known as the Lamb, is consecrated during the Divine Liturgy to be the Eucharist. Other small pieces are removed in honor of the Theotokos, different orders of saints, and the living and departed Christians who we pray for. The rest of the bread is cut up and distributed at the end of the Divine Liturgy.

This seal is two-sided, enabling the baker to make either a Greek style (larger) or Slavic style (smaller) loaf. It is made of solid basswood (also known as linden wood or lime wood), sure to provide a lifetime of service to Christ.

  • Large seal diameter: 6.5 inches (16 cm)
  • Small seal diameter: 3 inches (7 cm)

    This seal is absolutely amazing. The craftsmanship of the seal was astounding, as was the service from legacy, I can’t recommend them enough. All my orders have arrived earlier than expected. My matushka had to order hers from Greece for this level of detail, and waited months. This was an amazing price for a fantastic product and I couldn’t be happier. Father is super happy with how the lamb and other offerings come out. Thanks to everyone at legacy for making this available, it made baking for the parish easy, and made me seem better at it than I am.
