The Holy Lance (German: Heilige Lanze), also known as the Holy Spear, Spear of Destiny, Lance of Longinus, or Spear of Longinus, is the name given to the lance that pierced the side of Jesus as he hung on the cross, according to the Gospel of John.
Lancelot’s literary origins are from a forgotten story of the past. Prior to his appearance in the works of Chrétien de Troyes, Lancelot is virtually unknown. Scholar Roger Sherman Loomis suggests that Lancelot is related to the Welsh hero Llwch Llenlleawg (“Llwch of the Striking Hand”) from Culhwch and Olwen.
The name of the soldier who pierced Christ’s side with a lonchē is not given in the Gospel of John, but in the oldest known references to the legend, the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus appended to late manuscripts of the 4th century Acts of Pilate, the soldier is identified as a centurion and called Longinus (making the spear’s “correct” Latin name Lancea Longini).
A form of the name Longinus occurs on a miniature in the Rabula Gospels (conserved in the Laurentian Library, Florence), which was illuminated by one Rabulas in the year 586. In the miniature, the name LOGINOS (ΛΟΓΙΝΟC) is written in Greek characters above the head of the soldier who is thrusting his lance into Christ’s side. This is one of the earliest records of the name, if the inscription is not a later addition.
Logos (Greek: λόγος, from λέγω lego “I say”) is an important term in philosophy, psychology, rhetoric, and religion. Originally a word meaning “a ground”, “a plea”, “an opinion”, “an expectation”, “word”, “speech”, “account”, “reason”, it became a technical term in philosophy, beginning with Heraclitus (ca. 535–475 BC), who used the term for a principle of order and knowledge
In Rabula Gospel’s illustration LOGINOS is at THE LEFT – MUST be at the left… as is – without reflection – TRUTH illustrating ART, which is used only by some antient artists, who avoid mirror effect of reversion & confusion, which most modern artists use all the time for we (our brain and eyes) are conditioned to lies…
What is the name of the second one with a spear? In this painting the second one is carrying a bucket with red liquid in it… and pierces Xristos right into his RIGHT HEART… Right Heart is where The Child of LOVE lives (known to me as The Child with 4 friends and angel.in.g tool of Architect)
Angel.in.G tool of LOVE’s Child-The-Architect made (or sold) by “Red Star” :D)))
