Egg (2)


as a Christian symbol. Marble eggs have been found in the tombs of some of the saints, and egg-shells occasionally in the loculi of the martyrs, a relic of the celebration of the Agapae. As a Christian symbol it signified the immature hope of the resurrection; the use of it on Easter doubtless has reference to this idea.
