Description

The stelae from the Iron Age (-750 / -50) are monuments carved out of granite and decorated with spirals. They are often associated with the Gallic cult. There are two types of stelae: the low oval stelae and the taller more square stelae.

During the Middle Ages, the evangelists tried to eradicate all pagan cults. These stelae, traces of the Gauls in our regions, are thus destroyed, buried or recovered for the construction of Christian buildings. Some have been engraved with a Latin cross. However, stelae had already been used by the Gallo-Romans as military terminals along the tracks.
Celtic crosses are the blend of several religious and artistic influences. The stone represents a Latin cross in which is engraved a ring. They can then be decorated and sculpted with plant scrolls, interlacing and scenes from the life of Christ.

The collective memory wants that the cross of the old cemetery of Vue is a Celtic cross. However, this seems to be a more recent production. It was found in the 19th century and placed in the center of the Merovingian cemetery.
