Cross, Screen (or Rood)

Cross, Screen (Or Rood).

A cross on or above the altar is one of the legal ornamenta of the same; and the cross, with the figure of our Lord attached, can be erected in sculpture over the altar, or as an important part of the rood-screen. Anciently, almost every English church owned its rood-cross, with the figures of Mary and John on either side.
