Christianity has been practiced in Celtic countries for over 1500 years, and it has had a profound impact on Celtic culture. One way that this is evident is in the design of Celtic crosses. The tall shafts of the cross are reminiscent of the ancient menhirs, which were sacred stones that were used in Celtic religious ceremonies. The menhirs were believed to represent the union between the earth and spirit, and they were seen as a connection between the human world and the divine. In this way, it is not surprising that the Celts adapted their ancient religious beliefs to the new Christian religion. The tall shafts of the Celtic cross represent the union between the earth and spirit, just as the menhirs did. The stones are firmly fixed in the earth, reaching upwards to the heavens. In this way, the Celts were able to hold on to their ancient beliefs even as they embraced Christianity.
