Possible Arabic ? or middle eaastern script on plate in church ....
« on: Thursday 01 April 21 13:12 BST (UK) »
Cleaning the church brass ready for Easter, I had a good look at the collection plate .... and realised that the design isn't English (or Welsh) and has three motifs on it which might be Arabic ?   Is it ?   Any ideas where it might have come from ???  And what the three motifs say ?  (Positioned at 12, 4 and 8 o'clock on the plate in my photo.)

Thank you for your help !    So whatever is a plate with Islamic writing/symbols doing in an Anglican church in Wales ?! 

I remember there was an engraving on it of who and when it was given to the church ( ? )  but stupidly I didn't take a photo of it !   I'll go back to the church a.s.a.p. and see what I can find !

And any more info anyone can add will be most useful !

I'd be interested in knowing if it's Islamic, which should be a no-no in a church.

There used to be a lot more Christians in the Middle East but most have been killed off or driven out by persecution. Many of those Christians would have spoken Arabic.
