Product Description

HISTORY

A typical Christian cross of the Middle Ages.  The centre is carved into a quatrefoil. A quatrefoil is an ornamental design of four lobes or leaves used in numerous Medieval churches and cathedrals , resembling a flower or clover leaf. The  the cross ends are in the form of Trefoils which are also found in churches and cathedrals, in particular the shapes of the top of stained glass windows.

This style of cross in Heraldry is a Cross botonnée and sometimes referred to as the Cross of Athelstan.  Athelstan, King of the English 925-939, was the first King to be ordained with a crown placed on his head, rather than a helmet. Athelstan was the first true king of the English uniting regional kingdoms and defeated the Vikings and Scots at the Battle of Brunanburh (unknown location) in 937.
