The manner of the shameful death by which Our Saviour redeemed the world. Crucifixion was in use amongst the Romans, Greeks, and other ancient nations. The victim, after a cruel scourging, was either nailed or bound to the cross. The Romans for the most part confined it to slaves and seditious persons. For a Jew to be crucified was considered a disgraceful thing and the person crucified was regarded as one accursed.
