What the Cross Symbols for us

The cross is one of the most important symbols of Christianity. It stands on the top of the mountains, hangs on the walls and is worn as a jewel in the form of pendants on a chain.


History of the cross


The worship of the cross as a symbol has been documented since the 4th century during the reign of Emperor Constantine the Great. The cross that is still used today is also called the “crux immissa” or "Latin cross". The cross refers to the scene of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ described in the New Testament. According to tradition, Jesus himself had to carry the cross on which he was to die to the place of execution.


The cross - a symbol of Christianity The cross is one of the most important symbols of Christianity.

History of the cross The worship of the cross as a symbol has been documented since the 4th century during the reign of Emperor Constantine the Great. The cross that is still used today is also called the “crux immissa” or "Latin cross". The cross refers to the scene of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ described in the New Testament. According to tradition, Jesus himself had to carry the cross on which he was to die to the place of execution. What the cross really means? In the Bible, the cross appears in the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, and the letters of the apostle Paul. Whether the crucifixion of Jesus really took place on the cross or on the peg cannot be interpreted with certainty. Thus, the cross can be interpreted as a sign of hope, which means the remission of sins and the reconciliation of God with mankind. Christians also see this symbol as a sign of victory: by the resurrection that followed the crucifixion, death was definitively defeated. Wooden crosses are available as classic symbols or artistically carved crosses. In some regions, a carved wooden cross is found in almost every house.
