  • Celtic Cross

    The linear cross, which came to represent the crucifixion of Christ, was first used on grave markers in the 5th century. The early crosses were very simple. The circle of the sun was later placed around the upper part, forming a design similar to that of some styles of the Chi-Rho. During the 5th and 6th centuries the Chi-Rho and linear cross symbols converged in design, creating the basis for the crosses we now recognize as the Celtic Cross.

    The earliest symbols were formed of simple lines cut into the stone face of a slab or pillar. Over time more ornament was added, such as the multiple lines in our Celtic cross, and the recurved hook on our Chi-Rho cross.
