Medieval and Modern Greek, also transliterated Panayia or Panaghia, is one of the titles of Mary, the mother of Jesus, used especially in Eastern Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity.

Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Such an image is often placed on the inside of the apse which rises directly over the altar of Orthodox churches. By extension of this last sense, a panagia is an engolpion with an icon of the Theotokos, worn by an Orthodox bishop. When an Orthodox bishop is vested for the Divine Liturgy or another service, he wears a panagia and a pectoral cross over his other vestments. When the bishop is vested before the Divine Liturgy, the panagia is presented to him on a tray. May God create a clean heart in thee, and renew a right spirit within thee, always, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. The particles placed on the diskos during the Divine Liturgy.
The large cube is the Lamb, the triangle to the left is the particle for the Theotokos taken out of the Panagia. Bless me, holy Fathers, and pardon me a sinner,“ to which the brotherhood bows and replies, „May God pardon and have mercy on you. In the Orthodox world, specific icons and churches of the Virgin Mary are often given particular names, which reflect certain theological or intercessory aspects of Mary, or certain standardised depictions in hagiography, or peculiarities of the particular church or monastery.
