Product Description

HISTORY

The Triquetra with three points became known as the Trinity knot and was used to indicate the Holy Trinity in Christianity. The symbol pre-dates Christainity and the Celtic Druids celebrated the number 3 as a mystical and perfect number. It is thought this design originally represented the continuity of life.

The Celtic Knot design in many variations is found throughout the British Isles and the most prevalent surviving examples are on Christian artifacts from the 7th Century in the form of huge standing stone crosses, metalwork and beautifully illuminated bibles such as the Book of Kells, which is on display at Trinity College, Dublin.
It is uncertain when these designs originated and where but certainly many artifacts have been found with this scroll and knotwork throughout Europe and Asia going back to pre-Christian times. In modern times we try to put a meaning to this artwork but as little is written down it is all speculation but undoubtedly it indicates a person's status, or to glorify the gospels.
