Product Overview

The Mother of God Pendant measures 1.2 inches in diameter. Diminutive in size, this highly polished dolomite stone and resin pendant has the feel, gleam, and heft of a priceless heirloom carved from ivory! A religious community of sisters in France design, mold, and handcraft each and every pendant in their monastery’s atelier with care and prayer. 

The Theotokos – the “God-Bearer”

The Virgin Mary was proclaimed the Theotokos (Θεοτόκος – Greek for “God-Bearer”) at the Ecumenical Council of Ephesus in 431 A.D. The Virgin Mary is the Theotokos because she gave birth not to a human being but to God as a human being. The four Greek letters on this pendant – ΜΡ ΘΥ – represent a syncope (contraction) of two Greek words: ΜΗΤΗΡ ΘΕΟΥ – METER THEOU (“Mother of God”). The center part of each word is removed (syncopated). Μ[ΗΤΗ]Ρ Θ[ΕΟ]Υ becomes ΜΡ ΘΥ. The syncopation of each word is represented by the symbol ~ over each Greek letter pair.
