This large 2 1/4" solid bronze crucifix, cast from a Spanish antique, depicts the Miracle of Caravaca. The story is that while the Moors were attacking Catholic Spain in the 13th century, they captured a priest in the town of Caravaca and commanded him to say a Mass. He refused his captors for lack of a crucifix since the invading Arabs had destroyed all the crosses. Moments before the priest was to be executed for disobeying, a brilliant light and two angels appeared, carrying the 2-armed cross. Overcome by the vision, Abu-Ceyt fell to his knees and converted to the Christian faith. Our Lady is on the opposite side of the crucifix.

This crucifix is also available in .925 sterling silver.
