Crown of thorns: Symbol and artifact in Christianity; one of the instruments of the passion
According to three of the Gospels, a woven crown of thorns was placed on the head of Jesus during the events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. It was one of the instruments of the Passion, employed by Jesus' captors both to cause him pain and to mock his claim of authority. It is mentioned in the gospels of Matthew, Mark (15:17), and John and is often alluded to by the early Church Fathers, such as Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and others.
