The Orthodox Cross, Byzantine or Russian Orthodox Cross is a variation of the Christian Cross. It’s found in every Eastern Orthodox Church and Catholic Church of the Byzantine Rite. One version of the Orthodox Cross has a long vertical beam crossed about two thirds of the way up by a horizontal beam that represents Pontius Pilates’s inscription “Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews” and a lower beam representing the foot rest upon which our Lord’s feet were nailed. The lower beam is slanting up toward heaven. Many Orthodox crosses have trefoils.
