Religious medals with the crucifix, and their symbolic power, have been a galvanizing form for expressing one’s religious beliefs for centuries. The practice of wearing crosses, and religious medals with crosses, dates back to the early church. To modern Christians, the cross is an icon, a visual symbol of the victory of Jesus over sin and death. It is incorporated into countless images and religious medals. Many Christians wear the cross as an indication of their commitment to the Christian faith and some Christians also believe that wearing a cross offers the wearer protection from evil.
