This lovely pendant was inspired by the history of the Iona Abbey and its role as the birthplace of Scottish Christianity. The Abbey is where St. Columba, the “Dove Of The Church,” trained priests and bishops then sent them throughout Scotland to convert Celtic pagans to Christianity during the 5th century. It is also the birthplace of The Book Of Kells.

The Dove is the centuries old symbol of Peace, Hope, Faith, New Beginning, and Love. The Holy Spirit supposedly took the form of a Dove when Jesus Christ was baptized.
