What does the Catholic symbol IHS symbolise?

The IHS Christian Emblem is a Monogram which represents the Holy Name of Jesus consisting of the three letters.During the Middle Ages, the Name of Jesus was written: IHESUS. The monogram, or emblem, IHS is an abbreviation of the name IHESUS.Roman Catholic AnswerThere is no letter "J" in Latin, at least until John Paul II decided there was, so that is why Jesus is spelled with an Iesus. The IHesus spelling above is a mistake from the Middle Ages, and the above explanation is backwards, the IHesus spelling came from the Greek IHS, not the other way around. From the Catholic Encyclopedia: From the beginning, however, in Christian inscriptions the nomina sacra, or names of Jesus Christ, were shortened by contraction, thus IC and XC or IHS and XPS for Iesous Christos. These Greek monograms continued to be used in Latin during the Middle Ages. Eventually the right meaning was lost, and erroneous interpretation of IHS led to the faulty orthography "Jhesus."
