Recommended Posts

Yeah even you guys need to watch Spartacus the movie :) the old one.

But it was still Rome's power! Under Roman Catholicism :)

From Wikipedia article:

The question of the nature of the foundation for the cross used to crucificy Jesus, is related to whether Jesus carried only the patibulum or the full cross (patibulum and stipes) to Golgotha - as to whether the upright stipes was a permanent fixture on Golgotha, or whether there was a permanent, or specially prepared reinforced hole for the base of the stipes.[29][30] This also relates to the height of the cross, where estimates vary from 8 feet (2.4 m)[31] to 15 feet (4.6 m) in height.[32]
