Kataklysmos (Flood celebration)


The Celebration of the Holy Spirit

The Celebration of the Holy Spirit takes place on the Sunday of the Pentecost and has its roots from the Genesis of the Old Testimony, from Greek Mythology and Cypriot Folklore linked with the Goddess Aphrodite.

In Christianity, we celebrate the appearance of the Holy Spirit to Jesus’ students on the Sunday of the Pentecost, 50 days after His resurrection and 10 days after His Ascension. On Monday, we celebrate the Holy Trinity.

It is often accompanied with images of his mother the Virgin Mary , as well as other forms such as John , Joseph of Arimathea, Mary Magdalene and angels according to the descriptions in the Gospels. In some cases the four Evanglists are shown in the corniers and in others Jesus Christ is alone with angels. It is used during the church services of Good Friday and Holy Saturday.
