Re: Soul_Builder101

You are right, the modern European dramatists took up the later and the more recent symbol of the cross. The intertwined fingers, symbolizing fish that said ... hold on and see ... is reflected too, in the story of Godot, or God of Old Testament, in that the play's end remains open, moving towards a "tomorrow", or "Hope", when God may perhaps arrive. Thanx a lot for your thoughtful input.

The cross was made a symbol of Christ only very recently. Prior to that, Christ's symbol was the fish or the intertwined fingers that said.....hold on and see!

I can accept it! It makes sense to have humanistic and earthly components! Very well written, a nice discussion, too! sam
