Title:Trinity Church, Boston - Chi Rho
Notes:Trinity Church, Boston, was completed in 1877. Its architect was H. H. Richardson, and numerous artists and craftspeople contributed to the interior design. In 1971, Trinity was designated a National Historic Landmark for "possessing "exceptional value in commemorating or illustrating the history of the United States." This unusual adaptation of the Chi-Rho monogram shows the cross in an upright, rather than an X, position. The X served as the representation of the first letter of Christ's name. The P served as the representation of the second letter of Christ's name.

Donated by Anne Richardson, Nashville, TN.
