Cross Designs

Cross Designs

Shown below is a collection of nine black and white Cross Designs representing a variety of shapes, styles, and subject matter from Christian art. They come from the book The History of Our Lord in Works of Art by Jameson and Eastlake. It was published in 1872. Mrs. Jameson writes of the cross that “There seems no doubt that the cross was honoured by the Christians as an emblem of faith and a sign of a Christian profession in the earliest times, and possibly in the times of the Apostles.” If you want to see more Cross Designs, you should take a look at the pages with Christian Symbols of the Cross and Christian Crosses for more inspiration.
