O Crucifixalso called the Episcopal Cross, is the Cross of Christ, the Cross of the Crucifixion. It is one of the most important symbols of Catholicism and Christianity, because it represents the cross where Jesus Christ died.
Widely used on church altars within Catholicism and Christianity as a way to keep present the memory of the sacrifice that Jesus made for humanity. In addition, it is part of the habit of priests and nuns.
Still within the religious meaning, it represents opposing sides. In the case of Christianity, it is the relationship between life and death, the spiritual world and the earthly world, condemnation and redemption, and pain and sacrifice in confrontation with forgiveness and love.
Before Christ's sacrifice, the Cross was used by the Romans as an instrument of torture and death penalty, but after Jesus' crucifixion, it ended up symbolizing feelings of faith, renewal, new beginning, and sacrifice.
According to religion, the cross symbolizes the way of peace, which connects man to God, through sacrifices.
