Celtic High Crosses study day
Celtic Christians from the 7th – 10th centuries erected magnificent carved stone crosses commonly known as high crosses. The crosses are embellished with scenes from the bible and possibly other sources, together with abstract Celtic art.
Join us for a virtual tour of Celtic High Crosses from Ireland and Scotland. We will explore the meaning of the scenes and symbols carved on the crosses and the historical background to their creation.
