Constantine and the Catholic symbol
Chi Rho started to gain popularity with time amongst the Christians after it was embraced by one of the greatest Roman military commanders named Constantine I as a military standard. Apparently, Constantine saw this religious symbol in his dream before the “Battle of Milivian Bridge ” and considered it to be a sign from God hence he decided to put the Chi-Rho monogram on all of the soldiers’ shields. The success in this battle led Constantine to legalize the religion of Christianity in the Roman Empire and later on this symbol was also carved on the coins of Emperor Constantine.
Christian art and Chi Rho
Chi Rho can also be found in ancient as well as modern Christian art and it is represented by two Greek letters that are alpha and omega depicting Jesus as Alpha and Omega as the Beginning and the End.
