Symbolism

Christian symbolism is the use of symbols, it invests objects or actions with an inner meaning expressing Christian ideas.

Ichthys

Among the symbols employed by the early Christians, that of the fish seems to have ranked first in importance. Its popularity among Christians was due principally to the famous acrostic consisting of the initial letters of five Greek words forming the word for fish (Ichthus), which words briefly but clearly described the character of Christ and the claim to worship of believers: “Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς Θεοῦ Υἱὸς Σωτήρ”, (Iēsous Christos Theou Hyios Sōtēr), meaning, Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour

Staurogram

The IX monogram or XI monogram, is a type of early Christian monogram looking like the spokes of a wheel, sometimes within a circle.[1] The IX monogram is formed by the combination of the letter “I” or Iota for IHSOYS (Ιησους, Jesus in Greek) and “X” or Chi for XPISTOS (Χριστος, Christ in Greek). The spokes can also be stand-alone, without the circle. These monograms can often be found as ancient burial inscriptions

Anchor

The Christians adopted the anchor as a symbol of hope in future existence because the anchor was regarded in ancient times as a symbol of safety. For Christians, Christ is the unfailing hope of all who believe in him: Saint Peter, Saint Paul, and several of the early Church Fathers speak in this sense. The Epistle to the Hebrews 6:19-20 for the first time connects the idea of hope with the symbol of the anchor.

Alpha & Omega

Alpha (Α or α) and omega (Ω or ω) are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, and a title of Christ or of God in the Book of Revelation. This couple of letters are used as Christian symbols, and are often combined with the Cross, Chi-rho, or other Christian symbols.
