Description:
The goal of this category is to locate interesting christian crosses all around the world.
Expanded Description:
According to the wikipedia definition, a Christian cross is the most common symbol of Christianity.
It is intended to represent the redeeming martyrdom of Jesus when he was crucified on the True Cross in the New Testament.
In this category you may place "latin crosses", "celtic crosses", "eastern crosses" and "patriarchal crosses".



In countries where Christian religions exist, it is common to find those crosses.
So, the goal of this category is to show crosses with a special interest.

To determine if a cross could fit with this category, answer to these questions :

1Is it really a Christian cross ? [YES] [NO]
2Is this cross a free standing monument, with a minimum height of 5 feet (1.5m) between its top and ground basis ?
Answer [YES] if it corresponds.
Answer [NO] if it is only a symbol painted, fixed, engraved in wood or stone, …
3Where is the cross located ?
Answer [YES] if it is located not in a building, not in or on church or on the property the church is on, not in or at a cemetery.
Answer [NO] if it is located inside or placed on the wall or roof of a building (church, religious shop, etc.) or in its property, inside or at a cemetery.
4Does this cross has a special interest ?
Answer [YES] only if you can give some explanations and photographs illustrating this special interest : historic interest (give facts), religious interest, beauty of design (colors, materials used, sculptures, associated with statues of biblic personages), placement beyond the basic cross shape, large size, visibility from a great distance, etc.
Answer [NO] if this cross looks like a lot of other crosses (for example a simple wooden "T").


Instructions for Posting a Christian Crosses Waymark:
