Throughout Christian history those who have sought to proselytize have relied on integrating the symbols and ideas of native peoples with those of Christianity. Spanish missionaries to the new world brought them the double-armed Patriarchal Cross, or the Cross of Lorraine.They found that it was readily accepted by their converts and became the most favorite symbol of the new religion throughout the Spanish colonies. The design was instantly recognizable to t he indigenous people as it closely resembled the dragonfly, a native icon for death and birth.
