The name Passion Flower does not come from aphrodisiac, passion-inflaming effects, but rather from a religious symbolism to the Passion of the Christ.
Conquistadors and Missionaries immediately noted a symbolism of the Crucifixion in the Passion flowers. To the missionaries the three stigmas represented nails used to crucify Jesus. The five anthers represented five wounds. The filaments of the flower symbolized the crown of thorns. The vine’s tendrils were interpreted as whips used by his tormentors. The leaves are interpreted in two ways, as the spear stabbed into his side, or the three lobes are interpreted as the Holy Trinity.
