Cross Moline tattoos

Cross Moline Tattoos - In English heraldry, the cross moline is a design element that identifies the eighth son in a succession of inheritors. Each of the four arms of the cross moline peel off into a pair of curls at the end, producing eight points.

Design elements in heraldry, like the cross in its many variations, were originally a system of identifying combatants when their faces were hidden behind iron masks and helmets.

In French, the cross moline is known as the Croix Fourche, for its forked appearance.

The cross' shape derives from the piece of iron that supports the upper millstone of a corn-mill. In French, the word for mill is mouline. Hence, 'moline'. The Latin word molere means 'to grind'. It's not surprising that this cross is sometimes called a Millstone Cross or Miller's Cross.

A Christian point of view interprets the eight tips of the cross moline as the eight beatitudes. The cross may also have been identified with Luis Molina, a Spanish Jesuit who radically argued (in the 16th century) that God's grace was enough to sanctify the soul-even while man exercised free will.
