Archbishop Iakovos Collection
By Sophia Lufkin
Born in 1911 on the Greek island of Imvros, Archbishop Iakovos began his career as the Dean of the Annunciation Cathedral in Boston in the 1940s. He is remembered for his commitment to interfaith dialogue, and often invited Jewish and Christian clergy to speak at his congregation. Having seen persecution firsthand in the Greek-Turkish conflict of his childhood, Archbishop Iakovos was also committed to the American Civil Rights movement, and marched in Selma alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other faith and Civil Rights leaders in 1965.
Located on the top floor of the Archbishop Iakovos Library at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, this permanent exhibition displays the personal effects, vestments, and collection of His Eminence Archbishop Iakovos that reflect the 37 years (1959-1996) of his leadership of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America.

The collection also includes a number of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine era objects, including coins, reliquaries, and cross pendants. For example, this silver Greek Stater coin dates from the 4 th Century BCE, and depicts Pegasus and Athena.
Around the BTI Consortium
Tuesday, April 2, 9:30am - 3:00pm

A BTI Lifelong Learning Conference on Religion and Its Role in End-of-Life Care

Conversations about what it means to live well until the very end have a powerful impact on how we live--and how we die. Conversations can help preserve personal autonomy and respect for our faith-based values and practices. They can save families from making uninformed medical decisions when confronted by a crisis. They are an entryway to a deep spiritual practice. And, ultimately, they become a gift and a blessing for all.
