XB?
« on: April 29, 2006, 12:56:00 AM »

On the iconostasis in Church, i always look up and see this big "X" on the left side, and a "B" on the right. What is the significance of this?

Please and Thank you.

I think it means Christos Voskrese...Christ is Risen.

It could also be "Christ (the) King" if it is Greek letters.

I thought the XB had something to do with Slavonic and was the same thing as XC in Greek. Any of our Slavonic speakers want to put their 2 cents in?

The Russian parish here does that as well, it stands for Христос Воскресе (Christ is risen) hence the Ð¥ Ð’ for short.  At the Greek parish they just write out ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ ΑΝΕΣΤΗ! so there is no confusion.

Yeah. The Russian Churches usually have the "XB" and the Greek Churches have the "XC".
