Regular price $ 495.00 $ 0.00
An intimate gift of medieval religious art for a devoted heart, this is a replica of an ivory altar cross that may have belonged to the Abbey of Bury St Edmonds in England in the twelfth century. The cross is carved with ninety-two (92) figures and ninety-eight (98) inscriptions, and has been described as holding ‘an iconographic encyclopedia of learning almost unmatched in Medieval Art.’ This medieval English religious statuary bonds the worshiper to his Christian traditions.
