Languages of publication
St. Ignatius and St. Polycarp are the most famous names associated with the early church, Bishops and one of the apostolic fathers. In Ignatius’s letters the Cross is incorporated in a developed metaphor. The deeper meaning of this metaphor is : the instrument of the Redemption is the Cross. For him the Cross is the synthesis of Salvation. The Cross is considered as the tree of Life with its branches and fruits. In the same way as Ignatius, Polycarp, stresses the reality of Christ’s incarnation and passion.
