Symbols of God and the Works of Man
For the early Christians, the fish sign was one of the most important symbols of faith. Still familiar today, its origins and meaning are straightforward; the Greek word for fish is ‘icthus’ which incorporates the initial letters of five Greek words which describe the character of Christ (Iēsous Christos Theou Huios Sōtēr - Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour).
