Probably under the influence of Coptic missionaries (Christian descendants of the ancient Egyptians), spread Christianity among the Celts in Ireland, led by the Druids. This already knew a deity with three faces, of which there are various images and graphics. Thus the idea of the Christian Trinity was also called echo, 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. There they worshiped the Sun as a source of light and warmth, with its influence on the different times of the year, the isosceles cross arose containing a circle centered in their system. The converted Celts used this symbol because Cross and Light directly related to the Christ. Be the circle and the cross symbolically seen as heaven and earth. The lower bar was later extended so that the cross was placed high. The four recesses or apertures within the circle are created in the course of time. One often sees the cross in block form with the blocks biblical scenes or braid embellishments. It is called the cross beams with equal cross the Druid and the other Celtic Christian Cross. Chr. Celts but never a suffering Christ depicted on their crosses. The image of the crucified Jesus is both the Eastern Orthodox and Western Catholic Church until much later.
