Comment on Some of the most important Symbols for Orthodox Christians in The Eastern Orthodox Church – Symbols in the Eastern Orthodox Christian Faith (Eastern Orthodox Symbolism) and Christian Symbolism in the Roman Catholic Church (Symbolism in Western Catholicism) by John.

Dobry Den,

Good introduction. I was especially impressed with the “Tau” cross in its connection with Ezekiel.
I don’t know, but I suspect the “Tau” is more likely a Hebrew “Tav”, in the original alphabet, than a Greek “Tau”. The current Hebrew alphabet is borrowed from Aramaic. The original Hebrew looks very much like Phonecian. From there and the connection with Deuteronomy 4:8, the “Tav” would be “Torah” = Law/custom. Thus, a symbol of the Law on their foreheads.

Also just a small correction. The small picture of the “Bishop’s” vestments (2nd to bottom) is actually for a Priest, not a Bishop.

Love in Christ
