Silver Pewter Pardon Crucifix, 5.5cm tall
This crucifix is known as the Pardon Crucifix or sometimes as the Forgiveness Cross or Indulgence Cross. Made in nickle & lead free pewter with a lightly oxidised finish to bring up the detail.
XL size at 5.5cm tall. Very nice scroll-work detail and clear inscription on back. Made in Italy.
The front of the crucifix: Above the cruciform figure, the familiar I.N.R.I. has been inscribed with the words "Jesus Nazarenus Rex Judaeorum". Latin uses I instead of the English J, and V instead of U (Iesvs Nazarenvs Rex Ivdaeorvm). The English translation is "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews."
The Reverse of the Crucifix: On the transverse arms are the words, "Father, forgive them." On the vertical beam of the Cross are the words, "Behold this heart which has so loved men." An image of The Sacred Heart of Jesus is shown in the center.
Size: 5.5cm tall x 3.5cm wide
The crucifix comes with a silver steel split-ring through the top loop so it is ready to use.
There are stainless steel chains that tone well with this crucifix here.
