Crown and Sacred Monogram

Detail from the west window at Church Hanborough. "IHS" is the monogram of the Holy Name of Jesus. It comes from the first three letters in the Greek spelling of Jesus' name: those letters are iota ("I"), eta ("H") and sigma (here rendered as its Roman equivalent: "S"). A later tradition holds that IHS represents the Latin, 'Iesus Hominum Salvator', meaning "Jesus Saviour of Mankind."
