Olive Wood Tau Cross Pendant on leather cord (Not shown)

Tau is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and was used symbolically in the Old Testament. It was already spoken of in the Book of Ezekiel: äóìThe Lord said to him, äóÖGo through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over the abominationsäó_ (Ez. 9:4). The Tau is the sign placed upon the foreheads of the poor of Israel, it saves them from extermination.Œæ

It was then adopted by the very first Christians,ξbecause its form reminded them of the Cross on which Christ was immolated for the salvation of the world.ξ
