This made-to-order eximious® Paschal Candle Evangelium™ by Cathedral Candle is 51% beeswax and is a tribute to the writers of the four canonical Gospels.
The "Evangelium"™ — in tribute to the writers of the four canonical Gospels. This beautiful iconic design rendered in bronze toned wax, gilded with 24-carat gold leaf dramatically offsets the natural hues of the 51% beeswax Paschal Candle.
Early, traditional Christian art has long depicted, in beautiful iconic fashion, these four writers of the canonical Gospels as the four “living creatures” that surround God’s throne. The Evangelium depicts renditions of Mathew/Human, Mark/Lion, Luke/Ox and John/Eagle.
The eximious 51% beeswax Paschal Candles from Cathedral Candle Company are a tribute to the craft and the art of more than 100 years of exceptional candle making. Each and every eximious Paschal Candle, like the eximious Evangelium, is master crafted with the finest beeswax formulation and each candle is an individual work of art.
All eximious candles are individually bench worked and hand tooled to create intricate inlays, onlays and classic sculptured engravings.
Because of the workmanship required to bench craft each candle, please allow four weeks for the creation and delivery of your eximious Evangelium Paschal Candle.
