A crucifix is a cross, normally a Latin cross, with a representation of the body of Jesus Christ.

The use of crucifixes differ between Christian churches; in the Catholic Church they are very common, and in fact a crucifix must be present at or near the altar during Mass. In many Protestant churches, an unadorned cross, symbolizing the Risen Christ, is preferred to the crucifix.
