Collection(s)It is housed in a Late Baroque building from the end of the 16th century. During the 18th century the Făgăraş family donated the edifice, nowadays storied, to the Romanian Orthodox Bishopric. The building is known also under the name of the Inn (or Pub) of the Post Office, as once an inn and a post service functioned there. The exhibits include icons, silverware, ritual books, manuscripts etc. The most precious icons are: a Saint John the Baptist from the 17th century and glass paintings from the 19th century. Other remarkable objects include the silver shrine from 1775 and the cross worked in filigree from 1771. The religious books include the New Testament (1648), the Great Code of Laws (1652), the Bible of Nürnberg (1781). Among the manuscripts we mention the Letter of Arad People to Lugoj People (1848). The emblem of a Timiş bishop (1800) and the Lugoj Guildsmen's Chest (1819) are other items of interest.
