On November 18th, a group of IWC members were privileged to attend a specially arranged private tour of the Exhibition of Miraculous Icons and Holy Relics in the Balkan Countries. The event was hosted by the Bulgarian Embassy and Radosveta Doykova, spouse of the Bulgarian Ambassador to Serbia. The highlight of the visit was certainly the indomitable passion of the exhibition curator and author, Professor Axinia Džurova D.Sc., who had travelled especially from Bulgaria. As a leading authority in this area of study, Professor Džurova guided her visitors on a journey through the centuries from the earliest monasteries and churches, centres of piety and learning, to the present day when many of the long established devotions and rituals continue. After the tour, Professor Džurova stayed to chat and to answer questions during refreshments, very kindly provided by the staff of the Bulgarian Embassy.
