The Peacock Symbol

       The peacock is certainly a religious emblem, and with almost equal assurance we may declare it to belong to our LORD. Martigny says it is an emblem of the Resurrection. S. Augustine says it figures Immortality, because its flesh is incorruptible. This particular peacock version is from the Catacombs. It is seen here to dominate the Globe, and shows the victory that overcometh the world.

Scriptural References for The Peacock Chrismon:
  • "And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it." Colossians 2:15 (KJB)
  • "for the LORD your God is he who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you." Deuteronomy 20:4 (NHEB)
  • "I have spoken these things to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world." John 16:33 (BLB)
