Symbols incorporating letters appear in a variety of places, though they seem to be particularly prominent in chancels, on pulpits, around fonts and baptisteries, and on vestments.
These Christian symbols are typically connected to a particular theological assertion. As such, they can be fairly direct in their meaning. This makes it rather easy to teach with them, though they leave less room for interpretation than other kinds of imagers, like the symbols of the evangelists.
These symbols allow you to tackle otherwise difficult or complex theological doctrines, and to highlight their significance throughout Church History.
Explore these various symbols, and consider ways to work them into your own liturgy. You may be surprised at how well they represent some of the theology that your congregation holds implicitly.
