The San Damiano Cross, (a Byzantine style Icon Cross) is best known because it is beneath it that Saint Francis was asked by Christ to: "Build my Church".  

The original cross painted in the 12th century, measures almost 75 inches high, 47 inches wide, and is almost five inches thick.  It is currently housed in the Basilica of St. Clare of Assisi. ________________
