THE SYMBOLIC CROSS

The Symbolic Cross

 the cross of the Crusaders

It is a Greek cross

NOTE: The Symbolic Cross that Dante sees on Mars is the cross of the Crusaders. It is a Greek cross, which means that the two parts that make up the cross are of equal length. The Symbolic Cross is made up of the saved souls who are associated with the planet Mars.
