The original San Damiano Cross is a large Romanesque rood cross that St Francis of Assisi was praying before when he received his commission from the Lord to rebuild the church. The original cross hangs in the Basilica of Saint Clare in Assisi, Italy. When the Poor Clares moved from the San Damiano region to the Basilica in 1257 they took the cross with them where they care for it today. The cross is known as an icon cross because besides the main figure it has images of other saints and people related to the scene of Christ’s crucifixion.
