Probably under the influence of Coptic Missionaries (Christian descendants of the ancient Egyptians), spread Christianity in Ireland, among the Celts, led by the Druids. This had been a deity with three faces, of which various images and photographs. Therefore liked the idea of the Christian trinity called resonance, as proclaimed by the missionaries. Through the years converted the Druids themselves or at least offered little or no resistance. The Cross was already known to them as a sign of the earth in NS and EW. Since in their system worshiped the Sun as a source of light and heat, with the impact on the different times of the year, did the isosceles cross with a circle centered therein. The converted Celts used this sign because Cross and Light directly related to the Christ.
The circle and the cross symbolically seen as heaven and earth. The bottom bar was later extended so that the cross was placed high. The four recesses or openings inside the circle in the course of time arise. One often sees the cross in block form with the blocks biblical scenes or braid decorations. is called the cross with equal bars the Druid Cross and the other Celtic Christian Cross. The Chr. Celts have never a suffering Christ on their crosses depicted. The image of the crucified Jesus is both the Eastern Orthodox and Western Catholic Church until much later in time.
