Christine Cross


The Origin of the Christine Cross

The Christine Cross is a replica of a cross that was discovered in the tomb where Queen Christine of Denmark was buried. The Christine Cross is dated to the Byzantine era during the 11th century. The Byzantine era began in the fourth century. Emperor Constantine converted the Roman Empire from paganism to Christianity. He was later named a saint. During this Byzantine era, the cultures of Greece, Roman, and Christian are converged and because of this union, art, jewelry, sculptures, and architecture flourished.

Much of this artistic achievement is seen in the gorgeous Byzantine jewelry and Byzantine cross pendants which have been unearthed in tombs and ruins. The many crosses discovered from this era give clues as to early Christian beliefs and practices, as can be seen on the Christine Cross.

The Design on the Christine Cross

The letters IC XC appear on the front of the cross. These letters mean “Jesus Christ”. On the top of the Christine Cross, above the head of Jesus, “King of Glory” is written with the Greek letters OBCLDXC. Under the cross bar, the letters NI KA are written which means “conquers”.

On the back of the Christine Cross, there is a picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The letters, MuRho Theta Upsilon which translate, “mother of God”. Bon ThUI is written on the left and right ends of the cross bar and mean, “help us”.

The Christine Cross Today

The relevancy of the Christine Cross has not diminished since the Byzantine Era. It still carries the same message to all Christians today as it did to Queen Christine. It must have been a cherished piece of jewelry to have been buried with the Queen. Today, the Christine Cross is still being created for fine jewelry pieces. The message of Jesus Christ as the King of Glory is still engraved on the Christine Cross pendant and the Blessed Mother of Jesus with the entreaty of “help us” remains on the cross today.
