Ikonenmuseum Frankfurt presents the highlights of its collection, which has been developed on the basis of icons bequeathed to it by Dr. Jörgen Schmidt-Voigt, in a completely redesigned permanent exhibition.
The exhibition installed in 2021 allows visitors to experience icons made of wood and metal as well as liturgical utensils in the former refectory of the Monastery of the Teutonic Order. The icons and religious objects show the great diversity of orthodox religious visual worlds from Russia, Greece or Romania to Egypt, Syria, and Ethiopia.
The Ethiopia cabinet with valuable manuscripts, intricate crosses and colorful icons is the only exhibition on Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity in all of Germany.
