Man on the Cross
" Let us take The Man on the Cross out of religious context. This may, at first consideration, seem utterly impossible, because we have been taught to associate The Man on the Cross only with Christianity. The connection between The Man on the Cross and Christianity in particular, and religion in general, is so firmly fixated in the beliefs of human beings -- particularly in the western world -- that even when confronted with examples of ancient art which depicts a man on the cross far antecedent to Christianity, that is to say, thousands of years before Christianity, they are still unable to break their fixation." -- E.J. Gold, Man on the Cross Workshop, 1983

I wish my pain to help me not forget Our Endless Creator who can never descend, even accidentally, from the Cross of Creation on which he is crucified that we might have life and form. I can use this pain for my work, to remember. I do not mean artificially-induced pain, but pain in the natural course of events." -- Talk of the Month #4, 1983, "A Cause for Remorse"

The Man on the Cross material ranges from little-known historical details of Sumerian and Egyptian magic and the origins of Wiccan household religions in the Middle Ages to major evolutionary ideas such as intentional suffering, transformational necessity and Obligation to higher laws.
