A crucifix, or cross, is a geometric figure consisting of two perpendicular lines, one dividing the other.
Generally this figure is termed a crucifix when there is a representation of the martyred body of Christ on the cross. The crucifix is first recorded as being used in the fifth century. Prior to this time Christians used the symbol of a lamb to represent Him. Scholars believe that this was because the cross was still being used as a method of execution and the early followers of Christ did not want to associate Him with this ignoble death.
It wasn’t until the Middle Ages that craftsmen began to create intricate crucifixes.
