Religious Symbols

Almost every religion has its own symbols that express fundamental concepts of the religion. Religious symbols represent what is holy and abstract in a tangible and real way. They are a quick way to express complex and complicated ideas.


From the Christian cross to the Zoroastrian farvahar, religious symbols bring members of a common faith together, allowing them to easily identify each other. They also give believers the ability to express their religious values and ideals without words.
