520    A link exists between liturgy and popular religion forged 
       in the ritual use of certain symbols. Symbols used in both
       realms mediate this link and become pivotal. Such is the 
       Lignum Crucis, a seventeenth century reliquary of the 
       "wood of the true cross." This study identifies salient 
       Christological and soteriological and interconnected 
       liturgical and cultural meanings borne by the Lignum 
       Crucis as used during the contemporary Hispano-Mozarabic 
       Triduum at Santa Eulalia y San Marcos in Toledo, Spain. 
       The study takes an interdisciplinary approach to 
       liturgical theology through field-work, participant-
       observation, interviews, textual analysis, historical 
       studies, and Roman Catholic doctrinal and liturgical 
       sources. Cultural anthropology, ritual studies, liturgical
       theology, and systematic theology provide the theoretical 
520    The Hispano-Mozarabic rite, arising in Spain during the 
       fifth century, has recently undergone updating. Since 1988
       it is an optional liturgy for all Catholics in Spain and 
       in 1991 new liturgical books appeared. Hispano-Mozarabic 
       Lent is the liturgical context for the ritual use of the 
       Lignum Crucis  though it is used only on Good Friday. The 
       liturgy is primarily destined for Mozarabs who have 
       canonical rights to the rite, as the community of Toledo 
       has asserted. Its self-assertion arises from a keen sense 
       of history and culture 
520    Culture and identity develop through cultural events, 
       including liturgy. Mozarabs take the rituals of the 
       Hispano-Mozarabic Triduum to be significant to them as a 
       people. The texts, furthermore, reveal an exaltation of 
       Christ and the cross. Seven theological meanings emerge 
       from the ritual use of the  Lignum Crucis in terms of 
       Christology and soteriology: Christ's death saves; 
       salvation is found in obedience like Christ's; the cross 
       is central to understanding Christ's saving action; the 
       cross is a sign of victory; stress on the cross leads to 
       transformation of suffering; the martyr functions as an 
       alter Christus; and, the liturgical use of the  Lignum 
       Crucis links the people to Christ. Because Mozarabs and 
       the Hispano-Mozarabic rite reflect the liturgy and 
       spirituality of the earliest Hispanics, they and their 
       liturgy are an apt source for examining the roots of much 
       contemporary Hispanic spirituality, especially as 
       expressed in popular religion
