Sadigh Gallery has a wide variety of crosses from various cultures such as Egypt (Coptic Period), Holy Land, Byzantine Empire, Africa, Asia and so much more.
The cross is the sacred emblem of the Christian faith and is a symbol of redemption, signifying Christ's death on the cross for man's sins. The use of the cross as a symbol of faith goes back at least as far as the 100's AD. In 313 AD, Roman Emperor Constantine's Edict of Milan established the Christian belief in just one God over all as the dominant faith for an Empire destined to influence humanity everywhere for centuries to come. In the Byzantine Empire, ancient Greek and Roman culture was preserved and Christianity flourished. With its Christian faith, Roman traditions and Greek culture, the Empire served as a connecting link between ancient and modern European civilization.
