Culpeper, Virginia

The Ichthus:  Why wasn't the cross enough for the Christian brother buried here? Take a look at his last name. The cross became the most common symbol of Christianity beginning in the 4th century AD, but the fish may have been an even earlier symbol. For centuries though, the two-arc fish, disappeared from Christian symbology, only to be resurrected in the 1960s. [2014]
