 The Cross: Its Origin and Significance (No. 39)
The handled cross (or cross potencée) is in the form of a T produced by suppressing the upper limb of the Latin cross (which we have seen in the sun symbols derived from the Chaldeo-Assyrian systems).
The mallet and cup which became identified as the tau cross is identified as the symbols (of creative power and plenty) borne by Dispater, the wheel of the sun-god, the cornucopia and torque carried by Cernunnos (ibid.).
The symbolism that arose from the cults was that of the cross, and the incidence of the propitiation of Hecate (Artemis, Rhea or the Mother Goddess) and Hermes at cross-roads was aimed specifically at the control of spirits of the dead.

After the cross was outlawed as a means of execution, it became fully embraced by the Christians as their symbol of Christ.
The Latin cross is not inappropriate for a church that composed itself entirely of men, for in several early societies the Latin cross was a primary phallic symbol.
Phallic-masculine meanings of the cross are broadly hinted at in the fifth-century Gospel of Nicodemus, which says Jesus descended into hell and redeemed Adam, together with Old Testament patriarchs, prophets, and fore- fathers, by making the sign of the cross on their foreheads.

Cross, who says he's been writing the book in his mind since his first visit to Hendrix's grave in the 1970s, does a good job with the familiar and an excellent one with the forgotten.

 Rafal T. Prinke - Early Symbolism of the Rosy Cross
It is a small cross surrounded by a wreath containing four roses and it appears to be the only image of the Rosy Cross in the earliest, and generally believed to be authentic, Rosicrucian writings.
The symbol is a Calvary cross with a rose in its centre, which is identical with what Manly Palmer Hall considers to be the original symbol of the Rosicrucians.
However, the woodcut by Kulmbach seems to indicate that the rose joined to the cross was somehow connected with Hermetic thought as early as the beginning of the 16th century.

 Judah's Sceptre and Joseph's Birthright: Part Third/Chapter 7 - at BibleStudy.org
This is the pre-Christian cross of which relics are found along the trail of Israel, as they were being sifted through the nations to the isles of the Northwest, and which Ignatius Donnelly finds not only in Egypt and Ireland, but almost everywhere else.
Donnelly's object in discussing the pre-Christian cross is to prove that the cross has been a sacred emblem ever since the creation of man, and that it originated in the garden of Eden, because of the four rivers which parted in Eden and became four heads.
If it be true that the sign of the cross became sacred in the garden of Eden, then surely, after the giving of the birthright, it became doubly so to the house of Joseph; but now it is thrice sacred to them, for on the cross their Saviour made full atonement for sin.
