The Wondrous Cross: Crosses Over the Centuries

In the history of the Church, no other symbol has been so vital to faith, devotion, and worship as the Cross, the visual representation of the Tree on which our Savior died for the sins of the world.  This print highlights some of the ways in which the Cross has been depicted in worship settings of the Church from ancient times to the present.  In many ways, the Cross has become the shorthand for the Christ event, a kind of symbolic summary of the central and controlling truth of the incarnation and the victory over sin, Satan, and death.  These images can help you discover and appreciate fresh, deeper meanings of Christ’s suffering on Calvary.
