history of #christianity in 15 #objects - no. 1 the cross

presented by the Rt Rev'd John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford

in summary

- a potent symbol which has inspired great works of art

- a symbol of sacrifice which touches something profound

- but which cross do you visualise?

- and are you over familiar with it? 

- best seen from a distance with perspective - it is quite horrific and alien from our current experience

- the cross isn't up for private ownership - its not just an object

- it was a huge explosion some 200 years ago - and maybe we will always be collecting the debris
