The Christ figure on the present cross adheres to the type of late 12th and early 13th century Limoges corpora, identified by Paul Thoby (op. cit, p. 8) as the second type, variety B - according to Thoby, this is the first group of corpora where Christ's suffrage starts to be illustrated and pathos is created by the tense arms and down-turned mouth. The appliques with the four evangelists and the Christ in Majesty are probably slightly later in date - there is also the possibility of a Spanish origin for the plaques at the front. indicated by the use of more red enamel. The shape of the terminals and the copper repoussé ground are also slightly suggestive of a Spanish origin. The present cross is most likely to be a composite medieval object, perhaps assembled in its present shape in the 14th or 15th century. The combination makes for a still harmonious whole, and the cross would almost certainly have been in use as a processional cross.
