In 1979 the Byzantine and Christian Museum undertook to conserve and keep 660 works of ecclesiastical art (15th-19th c.) from the Collection of Dionysios P. Loverdos, a collector from Kephallenia.  The Loverdos Collection is one of the largest and most important collections of post-Byzantine religious art in Greece. The Museum received manuscripts, woodcarvings, textiles, works of minor arts and 470 post-Byzantine portable icons, remarkable samples of the painting of Crete and the Ionian Islands.
