Product Description

  • San Damiano Cross
  • From the popular Joseph's Studio Renaissance Collection
  • A beautiful and colorful cross inspired by the cross in Assisi, Italy

Details

The San Damiano Cross is considered an icon because it contains images of people with special meaning to the actual cross. The largest figure on the cross is Christ crucified. Beside Him are the five major witnesses to his crucifixion, Mary, Mother of Jesus; St. John the Beloved; Mary Magdalene, Mary, Mother of James and the centurion. There are also two minor witnesses to the crucifixion, Longinus, the Roman soldier who pierced the side of Jesus and Stephaton, the soldier who offered Jesus a sponge soaked in vinegar wine. Amongst these prominent witnesses are six angels and six patron saints of Umbria: St. John, St. Michael, St. Rufino, St. John the Baptist, St. Peter and St. Paul. At the top of the San Damiano Cross is the image of Jesus resurrected and climbing out of the tomb, surrounded by ten heavenly angels. Other images found in the San Damiano cross are the right hand of God, a bird and another animal. The original painter of the San Damiano Cross is unknown, however, some believe he had painted an image of himself as a small face over the shoulder of the major witnesses. The San Damiano Cross is the Cross beneath which St. Francis was praying when he received his commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church. The original San Damiano Cross now hangs in Santa Chiara Church (St. Clare Church) in Assisi, Italy.

Review: [...] Once my husband and I opened the box to see the actually cross we realized the photo just does not do it justice. If you want a cross that is rich in meaning and beauty, then the detailed workmanship found here is a lovely choice for your home. I've included a photo of the cross placed over my desk in our living room.

It is everything and more

Review: This is beautiful, full of excellent detail. The only thing is the coloring is darker in person than in the picture and I wasn't expecting that. I love the detailed face of Christ, the 3Dness of the crucifix and the fact that I just have to stop and look at it, it helps me to keep Christ in my mind, thoughts and prayers. This crucifix welcomes and invites you into Christianity.

I love the San Damiano Cross.

Review: This is such a beautiful crucifix. We love the symbols depicting events in the life of Jesus. We especially love that St. Francis prayed before the same design. I was worried that the colors were going to be an issue after reading one review but the slightly subtle coloring just gives it a slightly antique look.

Stunning!

Review: My husband & I were married at St. Peter's parish in Greenville, NC. St. Peter's crucifix is the San Damiano. I was confirmed and received my first Holy Communion under this crucifix as well as my husband & I took our wedding vows under the San Damiano. It is so beautiful and moving with such special meaning. This fall, My husband & I will be traveling to Italy and will be stopping in Assisi to see the original San Damiano.

Review: This Crucifix was a Christmas gift for my daughter but I did get to see it when she opened it and it is very beautiful. I was surprised how well made and intricately painted it was for the price and she loved it. Also I ordered it only about 8 days before Christmas and was worried it wouldn't arrive in time but it did arrive the day before Christmas Eve.

The cross was beautiful; would buy again
