Renaissance Crucifix Cross Two-Sided Pendant Pewter Unisex Charm Necklace 2.75LPN# LOG-113
Crucifixes in this style first appeared in Italy during the Renaissance. They were more refined and ornate than medieval crosses and were intended to show, in the richness of their style, the Lordly aspect of Christ's divinity. This pendant has a wonderful size at 2.75 inches long. It has details on the front and back sides and has a blue cabachon below Christ's feet. If you collect crosses, this is a beautiful addition and could hang as a focal point on a bead necklace or rosary.
Renaissance Crosses were more realistic than medieval crosses. This gave them a greater power to invoke Jesus' suffering, and to remind those who wore them that it is their sins that were the reason why Jesus had to be crucified. The letters INRI mean: "Hail Jesus, King of Jews". These were Roman words. The Christians would say "Praise Jesus, King of Kings."
