For the past two thousand years, the cross has been a powerful symbol of the Christian faith and an anchor of its symbol system. In this volume, a group of distinguished scholars delves into the theologies and spiritualities of the cross at select moments in the tradition. They examine biblical texts and commentaries, lectionaries, liturgical poetry, sermons, and theological spiritual treatises in: Paul, the early liturgy, Origen, Augustine and Bonaventure. Each chapter provides a window into how particular contexts influenced the interpretation of the cross and how the cross functioned in each unique historical moment. Originally presented at Saint Mary's College, these papers offer a fresh and distinctive approach to the literature on the cross. The authors' historical perspective points to the tradition as a transforming agent for theology and spirituality today.See Liturgy Good thief, confessor, feast of, 63 Gorday, Peter, 1 , 247 Gregory of Nyssa, 223 Griffin, David Ray, 240 Guardini, ... 62 Exhortation to Martyrdom ( Origen), 102, 113-14 Manual of Dhuoda, 64-65 Martyrdom, 13, 113-17, 136, 140.
