RIZA: Pursuing Noble Beauty

Recently, one of our Eastern Christian readers drew my attention to an Eastern Christian vestment company which is associated with the Serbian Orthodox Church of Australia and New Zealand.

The company is called RIZA and what struck me about their particular vestments is their uniqueness and subtlety of design.

These are most certainly very clear examples of noble beauty and, while I cannot quite put my finger on it, something about these put me to mind of some of the efforts made within the monastic context of the 20th century Liturgical Movement. Take a look here at some of their work and go to their website if you would like to see more.

All for the greater glory of God indeed.
