Information gathered for each Class 2 Stone is put into context then evaluated to assess whether criteria to be considered a “transition” Stone are met.
The associated PDF provides a synopsis for each prospective Transition Stone including:-
- Stone name
- Site Reference
- where found (and current location if different)
- details of carvings
- “strength” of relationship between Pictish-Mithraic & Christian objects (whether complementary, having “implied acceptance” or neither)
- proximity to water
- whether in an open or raised area
- if at or near a church
- any association with a Saint.
An evaluation is made on the extent of a Stone functioning as a “transition” Stone
from Mithraism to Christianity. This is based on an assessment of the relationship between Pictish-Mithraic & Christian carved objects and “features” of geographic location.
Detail is in the Synopsis and Evaluation by Stone PDF.
