Commentaires : It was in the sixth century that the Crucifix became popular images in religion, although it was not until the 8th century that it was seen regularly on public works. By the 13th Century complete realism of the agony crucifixion is achieved in the Jesus figure. The cross or the crucifix was not placed on the alter churches until the 11th Century. The Crucifix is distinct from the cross and unique to Christianity. It is a symbol of Jesus' sacrifice for humanity. Crucifix is from the Latin cruiare which means to torture. The cross was used most by the Romans as a form of sever punishment. It was mostly restricted to the punishment of slaves or those who had committed serious crimes such as highway robbery. It was illegal to use this punishment on a Roman citizen. This crucifix comes from the St. Augustine's Church in Rustico. The Treaty of Paris gave Acadians, who were Catholic, the right to practice their religion. By 1786 Catholics were allowed to own land on Prince Edward Island. In 1792 the first St. Augustine's church was built by the residents of Rustico. It was replace in 1806 and again in 1834 it was decided to be rebuilt again in a gothic style. Construction on the new church lasted until 1845 when the interior was finished but embellishments were continued for the next few years. St. Augustine's was the Pro-Cathedral of the Diocese for 22 years, 1837 to 1859, when F. Bernard MacDonald was appointed Bishop for the Diocese of Charlottetown but chose to continue living in Rustico
