A crucifix (from Latin cruci fixus meaning "(one) fixed to a
cross") is an image of Jesus on the cross, as distinct from a bare
cross. The representation of Jesus himself on the cross is referred
to in English as the corpus (Latin for "body").
The crucifix is a principal symbol for many groups of Christians,
and one of the most common forms of the Crucifixion in the arts. It
is especially important in the Latin Church of the Catholic Church,
but is also used in Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches,
in Coptic, Armenian and other Oriental Orthodox churches, as well
as in Methodist, Lutheran and Anglican churches, but less often in
churches of other Protestant denominations, which prefer to use a
cross without the figure of Jesus (the corpus). The crucifix
emphasizes Jesus' sacrifice — his death by crucifixion, which
Christians believe brought about the redemption of mankind. Most
crucifixes portray Jesus on a Latin cross, rather than any other
shape, such as a Tau cross or a Coptic cross.
Western crucifixes usually have a three-dimensional corpus, but in
Eastern Orthodoxy Jesus' body is normally painted on the cross, or
in low relief. Strictly speaking, to be a crucifix, the cross must
be three-dimensional, but this distinction is not always observed.
An entire painting of the Crucifixion of Jesus including a
landscape background and other figures is not a crucifix either.
Large crucifixes high across the central axis of a church are known
by the Old English term rood. By the late Middle Ages these were a
near-universal feature of Western churches, but are now very rare.
Modern Roman Catholic churches often have a crucifix above the
altar on the wall; for the celebration of Mass, the Roman Rite of
the Catholic Church requires that, "on or close to the altar there
is to be a cross with a figure of Christ crucified".
