St. Ninian, a British bishop who lived in the early 5th century, is credited with the conversion of the Southern Picts of Scotland. The earliest known church built by St. Ninian was a Withorn, or the ‘shining place’. A poem written by a monk at Withorn in the late 8th century tells how Nynia was appointed to lead “companies of people to the golden-glowing constellations in the starry sky.” This cross design is formed by straight-line knotwork (a symbol of eternal life) surrounded by a radiant circle (the sun symbol).
