The Wren Cross is back on permanent display in Wren Chapel at the college of William & Mary.
The cross is now in a display case with a plaque explaining the cross's roots in the school's history. The display is a compromise to a controversial decision made by President Gene Nichol.
Nichol had the cross removed from the altar in November, in hopes making people of all religious backgrounds feel comfortable in the chapel. Many students and alumni expressed outrage over the decision.
William and Mary spokesman Michael Connolly said the display case arrived over the weekend and the cross was immediately placed in it without delay or ceremony.
