The Sign of the Cross: The Gesture, the Mystery, the History

   
Andreas Andreopoulos

“Among the items that had had ‘long-continued observance,’ even at the dawn of Christian history, was the sign of the cross. ‘In all our travels and movements, in all our coming in and going out, in putting off our shoes, at the bath, at the table, in lighting our candles, in lying down, in sitting down, whatever employment occupies us, we mark our foreheads with the sign of the cross,’ Tertullian wrote. It seems that the sign of the cross was such an entrenched element of Christian practice that a believer would not consider refraining from it. Tertullian believed it to be universal, and already ancient in AD 204.”
