Greene seems to have taken Winkler's lines nearly verbatim from an 1877 liturgical glossary that describes the corpus as: "contractedly suspended from the cross-beam parallel with the upright portion of the cross," noting that "the symbolism of the outstretched arms is that Christ died for all men; that of the Jansenist crucifix, that Christ died only for the elect" (Lee 103).
