 General Description:

Chi Rho - Rise Up!

The "X" (Chi) and "P" (Rho) are the first two letters of "Christ" in Greek, thus a symbol representing Christ himself. Though the symbol dates to the earliest years of Christianity, the popularity of the symbol was spread by Emperor Constantine the Great. Though not a Christian at the time, Constantine prayed one night that God might assist him in his battles with his enemies. Soon after, a vision of this symbol appeared to him with the inscription "By This Sign, Ye Shall Conquer." As the writer Eusebius describes it: "the symbol of the Savior's name, the two letters indicating the name of Christ by means of its initial characters, the letter P being intersected by X in its center." Upon conquering Rome, Constantine issued the Edict of Milan in 313 A.D. outlawing the persecution of Christians and ordering the return of all previously confiscated properties.

The phrase "Rise Up" is taken from the Acts of the Apostles 22:16 "Rise up, and be baptised, and wash away thy sins, invoking His name."
