Rocco is the pen-name of Abisha A. Hudson. From the introduction: “Speaking to an educated woman of the ancient meaning and remarkable origin of the cross, she inquired, ‘What, the cross of Christ’? Her unconsciousness that it had any other relation than that pertaining to the crucifixion of Jesus illustrates a prevailing lack of historical knowledge in most people throughout Christendom. The hope to bring within the reach of the average man of letters a chapter of mythological lore which has heretofore been confined to the few is one motive for offering these pages to the public.” A short book on ‘phallic worship’ it would seem.
