Medieval Cross PendantFrom birth to death, whether a peasant, a serf, a noble, a lord or a King, the lives of the Medieval people were dominated by the church and religion. Many wore or carried small crosses to show their devotion to the church. The Medieval period was also a time of great change in the Christian church. Disputes of the Crusades led to the split called the Great Schism of 1054, allowing for the rise of a new religion called Protestantism, which led to a further split in the Christian Church referred to as the Protestant Reformation. This medieval cross has been set in a solid 14k Yellow gold 7.31g and diamond 1.0 tcw bezel.
