Sterling Silver Traditional Celtic Cross- Small & Chain
Throughout Ireland and Scotland, the Celts crafted these magnificent symbols in stone. Celtic Crosses predate Christianity and were first used by pagans to worship the sun. In pagan times the circle of the Celtic Cross represented the Sun, being the centre of their lives. It was not until the 4th century AD when it was introduced by the Roman Emperor Constantine, the the Celtic Cross was used to represent Christ's victory. During the great conversion of many pagans to Christianity, Christian philosophers adapted the Celtic Cross and taught the meaning of the circle to represent Christ, the centre of Christianity.
