Обсуждение:Крест святого Петра
На сколько я знаю, этот крест - крсет Св. Павла, а не Петра.
St. Peter's Cross is an inverted Latin cross. The origin of this symbol comes from the fact that the Catholic Church claims St. Peter was crucified upside down, as he felt he was unworthy to be crucified in the same manner that Christ died (upright). It is often used with two keys, symbolizing the keys of heaven.
The Alexandrian scholar Origen is the first to report that St. Peter 'was crucified head downward, for he had asked that he might suffer in this way'. Some Catholics use this cross as a symbol of humility and unworthiness in comparison to Christ.
Петра, 100%. По этой причине он изображён над троном Папы Римского, поскольку от св. Петра взяла начало Христианская церковь.
