Description
This large c. 12th century medieval bronze byzantine crusader knights cross is decorated with concentric circles known as the evil eye front and back of the cross. When wearing the evil eye on the body according to byzantine culture guards the wearer against a cursed cast or malevolent glare, usually when a person is unaware, believing receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury. The wearer reflecks this malevolent gaze back upon those who wish harm. This magical belief combined with the Christian faith made for a potent sense of security. These early types of Christian crosses were known as the Greek cross and were not intended to represent the cross of the crucifixion but the four directions of the earth in which to spread the gospel. The Greek cross with straight arms of equal length were adopted by the knights templars from the second crusade of (1147-1150) and was worn on their clothing and shields. An exceptionally large example of a byzantine crusader knights cross. Natural slate stand included in the sale.
