VAT 1Vatican Cross: Also known as The Crux Vaticana. It is believed that the Vatican Cross is the oldest feretory currently known, and is thought to be crafted from the fragments of the cross upon which Jesus was crucified. The wood dates from the sixth century, and was given as a gift to the people of Rome by the emperor, Justin II. Along it bears the inscription: "With the wood with which Christ conquered man's enemy, Justin gives his help to Rome and his wife offers the ornamentation."
