Religious Glossary - common terms used related to Religion

Crucifix - A religious symbol representing Jesus nailed to the cross. Most crucifixes lack accuracy because they portray a partly clothed man nailed through the palms. The Romans crucified people naked, with their wrists nailed (or their arms tied) to the crossbar. (Religious Tolerance)

Jesus was crucified by the Romans in the final year of his life, and his death is a highly significant event for members of the Christian faith. The crucifix is thus a principal symbol of the Christian religion. It consists of a Christian cross, against which is nailed a figurine representing Jesus. (wikipedia)

A Middle English term derived from the Latin, meaning "fastened to a cross." A crucifix is a cross that bears the image of the crucified Christ, pointing to the reality of the One who came in the flesh to be the Savior of the world.
