Introduction / Using ARAS: The Symbolism of the Cross

The recurrence of images from widely diverse areas of time and space offer verification of Jung's theory of the collective unconscious, and the variations in the presentation of a given theme form one historic moment to another manifest the cultural configurations which may condition the appearance of the underlying archetype.
The organisation of the material makes it possible for each individual user to make his own associations with a symbol form one time and place and its relation to another one from another time and place. The Archive does not develop pre-packages analyses of any given symbol.
