When was crucifixion last used as a means of execution?
Also, I just read my second book by Anne Catherine Emerich. She stated in one of her visions that the horizontal part of the crucifix was not perpendicular to the vertical part, but more like a v, anyone know anything about this?
How heavy do you suppose the crucifix that Jesus carried was?
Finally, is it true that Jesus is depicted differently on the cross in some countries? For example, I thought I heard once that in Mexico, Jesus is depicted much more “beaten and bloody” than on a typical cross found in the U.S. If this is true, why the difference in depiction?
