Inverted crosses? St Paulus, I think, had them as his sign... now they are something of a symbol for Satan. But then again, the pentagram pointed down was a sign of witches... well, before they where view as evil I think. Maybe that's why they're so closely related to Satan nowdays?

It's fun to see how everything, all signs and associated creatures and such just have been stole from old religions and alike.

Myself I'm more into the invented pentagram. Got two, one from Alchemy actually, but never wear them really open. All you can see is the chain...

Don't think I'll actually buy an inverted cross, but they sure could be nice to dream about if they made some... :blush:


The pentagram is used as a symbol in Wicca, with the middle point upwards. It usually represents the four elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) and the spirit that binds them together. Satanists use it with the middle point downwards (inverted). However, most people just see a pentagram and assume it's evil.

I heard more and more often that the inverted cross is nowadays mainly being used as an anti-christian symbol rather than specifically for satan, meanings of these things change with time i guess...Still whatever alchemy would design i'm sure it'd look damn cool :p

The dream is alive...

Things change a lot. At least the meaning of it. A houndred years ago... how differnt it all was back then. and then watch it a thousand years ago... the meaning of everything change in time, even if the symbol stays the same.

My beauty is not the shape of the body,
but the voices in you mind;
the thoughts you can't live without

As previous posters said already, the inverted cross is a symbol of St. Peter (martyred by being crucified upside down). Though it's now most often interpreted as a theistic Satanist/anti-Christian symbol. Interesting how the meaning of symbols can change over time.

To the original poster: if you really wanted an inverted cross made by Alchemy Gothic, you could probably pick out whatever traditionally oriented cross that AG sells, and take it to a jeweler to have the bale removed & soldered to make it hang upside down.
