Abstract

The worship of the Holy Virgin in Lipsi, as I understand it, is structured along two main axes within the ritual year: fertility and death. Through her capacity as Mother of God and the celebrating of Jesus’s conception and birth, on Annunciation Day and Christmas, the Holy Virgin is symbolically associated with fertility, as the above testimony clearly suggests.
