Pappus' theorem is the first and foremost result in projective geometry. Another of his significant contributions was the notion of cross ratio of four points on a line, or of four lines through a point.
We discuss various important results: such as the Cross ratio theorem, asserting the invariance of the cross ratio under a projection, and Chasles theorem for four points on a conic. We show that the notion of cross ratio also works for four concurrent lines.
