I understand Rei put the spear in it in episode 14, but how did Lilith get up there in the first place? I doubt there's a concrete answer, but I'm just curious. I've always assumed Nerv just put it up there since it was already in the Geofront. But I dunno honestly.
As long as the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth exist, everything will be all right.

Seele seem to be either direct descendants or inheritors of precursor race technologies, so them doing crazy things off panel is somewhat normal. I wouldn't even be surprised if, rather than putting it there, they simply grew the body right on a cross.

It was the Romans.

That bugged me as well when I first saw it. Perhaps Lillith grows on a cross? There's probably some esoteric symbolic meaning to it.
Please be nice, I am dumb and new :P

I just assumed NERV did it for whatever reason. Sketches of the creation of Unit 01, back when it was connected to Lilith, show them both seemingly laying on the ground, so maybe they hoisted her up for easier containment/LCL collection/whatever.

idk, they build, maintain, and manufacture EVA units and Lilith isn't that bigger than those units... they probably have some crazy powerful cranes and pullies down there.

Seeing how they have skyscrapers that withdraw into the ground i don't think thats the most impressive feat of engineering in the Evangelion world.
