dc.description.abstractThe celebration of the Divine Liturgy is one of the most important ceremonies in the Christian Church. This ewer is part of a silver service (with Walters 57.634, 57.635, 57.642, 57.644, 57.649, 57.646, 57.650, and 57.638) that is one of only four to survive from the first "golden age" of Byzantium (6th century). Each of the vessels in this service performed a sacred function in the liturgical service. Small ewers (pitchers) and bowls held water for ritual hand-washing. This silver service was found in Syria in 1910, in the village of Kurin. The Greek form of its name, Kaper Koraon, is inscribed on several pieces in the treasure, including a chalice, which reads: "...treasure of the Church of St. Sergios of the village of Kaper Koraon." Almost all of the vessels record the names of donors who gave pieces from their private dinner services in fulfillment of a vow, to gain divine blessing, or in prayer for salvation.; [Translation] In two lines over the shoulder of the body: + Ewer of St. Sergios. In fulfillment of a vow of DANIEL and of SERGIOS and of SYMEONIOS and of BACCHOS; [Translation] In one line on the handle: + and in fulfillment of a vow of THOMAS, of the village of Kaper Koraon.
