In early Christian times, Christ was represented symbolically by a fish, a lamb, or the Good Shepherd. The crucifiction doesn’t appear before the 8th century. In Roman times, an image of Christ as radiant was often preferred. He abides the Romanesque imagination as World Sovereign and Vanquisher of Death. The Christ in Glory of Charité-sur-Loire is represented at the centre of an almond (mandorla) which symbolises the firmament. In a hieratic and serene pose, He teaches to mankind the Divine Revelation which will allow him to join the kingdom of his Father.
