CROWNS as Symbols for Deification

Paul to Timothy: Having endured, "there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." (2 Timothy 4:7-8).

Heavenly crowning ceremonies were an important part of early to later versions of deification and a popular scene in historic Christian art works.
