Mitre of H.H. Pope Shenouda III
His Holiness Pope Shenouda III., 117th Pope of Alexandria and the Patriarch of All Africa on the Holy Apostolic See of Saint Mark the Evangelist of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, receives a mitre designed by the V. Rev. Archpriest Mikhail Edward Mikhail of St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church of Cleveland, Ohio, USA on occasion of his 40th anniversary as patriarch.
On the mitre is embroidered the monogram of Pope Shenouda's name in Coptic letters as well as hand-painted icons of Christ, St. Mark, Sts. Athanasius and Cyril of Alexandria, and St. John Chrysostom. The mitre was custom made by the craftsmen of Liturgix, Sofia, Bulgaria.
