Product Description
The Byzantine cross, also known as the Suppedaneum cross, is a variation of the Christian cross, commonly found in the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Eastern Catholic Churches of the Byzantine Rite. The cross has three horizontal crossbeams, where the top one represents the plate which is inscribed with the letters INRI, and the bottom one, a footrest. In many depictions, the side to Christ's right is higher. This is because the footrest slants upward toward the penitent thief St. Dismas, who was crucified on Jesus' right, and downward toward impenitent thief Gestas.

It is also a common perception that the foot-rest points up, toward Heaven, on Christ’s right hand-side, and downward, to Hades, on Christ’s left. One of the Orthodox Church’s Friday prayers clearly explains the meaning: "In the midst, between two thieves, was Your Cross found as the balance-beam of righteousness; For while one was led down to hell by the burden of his blaspheming, the other was lightened of his sins unto the knowledge of things divine, O Christ God glory to You.".

I made this pendant to show this lesser known design, and because the Byzantine Rite.is the church that I belong to.
