Abstract

A sculpture in the chancel arch of undetermined authorship and the exact time of creation depicts crucified Jesus. It refers to the method of showing the Saviour's dead body, which was initiated in the Middle Ages, emphasizing his suffering and death by showing his wounds and head lowered inertly. The name "crucifix" comes from the Latin word "crucifixus" and means "nailed to the cross."
