The legend of the pelican was adopted into Christianity by the 2nd century, when it appeared in the Physiologus, a Christian adaptation of popular animal legends and symbols.
Theodore Steinmeyer, the architect of Hope Lutheran Church, wrote: "The altar's center is richly carved in high relief, showing a mother pelican feeding her young in a nest, sustaining their lives by plucking into her own breast for blood, of which the young partake. This is one of the finest symbols of the Christian Church, bringing to mind that we have life eternal through the blood of Jesus Christ, shed by Himself, for us" (January 18, 1931, Dedication of Hope Ev. Lutheran Church and School).
