This article overviews the background of the representation of the Cross in Late Antique and Byzantine monumental art. Several contexts of the usage of the Cross are considered, such as the Cross as a non-anthropomorphic substitute of Christ; the Cross as a cosmic symbol simultaneously framing the surrounding decorative space, and the Theophanic Cross in a vault or conch or as a counterpart to the “Earthly” register below.
