15/50.- Desesti, view of the cemetery


The cemetery surrounding the church is populated by many Celtic crosses, inscribed in a circle or semicircle and bordered with saw teeth. A Celtic cross is a symbol that combines the cross with a ring surrounding the intersection. It is the characteristic symbol of Celtic Christianity, though the symbol has older, pre-Christian origins. The presence of the Celtic cross in Maramures is due to the fact that historically the people inhabiting this region were Celts and Dacians who were never fully Romanized. This explains many symbols of Celtic origin and tradition.
