The crosses page calls a cross with three crosspieces a Papel Cross. This page mentions a specific cross known as the Papel cross but makes no mention of a cross as previously described as a Papel Cross. 04:14, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

I noticed this as well. The proper graphic has been added. Dulcimerist 06:21, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Someone got overly zealous and deleted the Image:PapalCross.JPG I created and uploaded. My design is based on similar Papal Cross examples in the book "Church Symbolism" by F.R. Webber, 1938. This image is also available here: Symbols and Crosses I'm the publisher of the website at that link, and this image is public domain. --Dulcimerist (talk) 01:07, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

QUESTION: The "papal cross" shown here is the same as the Maronite Antiochene cross. The Maronites normally explain the stepped crossbars of their version as mirroring the branches of the Cedar of Lebanon. So is the parallel with the papal cross purely coincidental? There might be a connection between the two if that cross is associated with St Peter, who founded both the Roman and Antiochene churches, but that doesn't seem to fit with the explanation of the papal cross given here. Any ideas? (talk) 15:49, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
