Product Description

HISTORY

St Petroc was said to be a Welsh nobleman son of a king. He studied Christianity in Ireland and is said to have converted St.Kevin while there. He travelled to Cornwall where he built a church at Padstow, Bodmin and Little Petherick, as well as Devon, Wales and Brittany. His travels took him to Rome and possibly as far as India.
King Constantine ruled Cornwall at this time and was said to have been converted to Christianity by St Petroc when he rescued the deer that the King was hunting. In art, St.Petroc is generally portrayed with a stag.There are many legends about St Petroc’s healing, miracles and banishing monsters. He was buried at Padstow. In the 12th Century St Petroc’s Church in Bodmin obtained his relics and put them in a painted ivory casket, which can still be seen today.

The Celtic Cross carved from stone can be found throughout the British Isles with some beautiful examples in Ireland and Scotland, many  ten feet or more high. The ones in existence are dated back to the 5th Century.
There are many theories to the symbolism but it can be assumed the Celtic cross symbolises the bridge to higher energies and planes of existence. It represents the relationship between the celestial realm (vertical axis) and the earthly plane (horizontal axis). The circle around the cross symbolises both the Wheel of Life and the Sun. It is easy to see why the Celts easily adapted their ancient religious beliefs to the ideas of Christianity.
