Instruments of Christ's passion


instruments of passionRepresentations of the Instruments of Christ’s Passion are displayed in many churches, with the object of remembering Christ’s suffering for the redemption of mankind.

These can be in stained glass windows, on roof bosses, on reredos screens, or painted onto a number of small shields.

Instruments shown include the cross, the crown of thorns, lances, hammer and nails, scourges, and the robe which Christ wore.
