A brief annotation St John the Baptist was a prophet who led an ascetic life. He baptized Jesus Christ in the Jordan River and was honored as one of the greatest saints of the Christian Church. According to the legend, St Gregory the Illuminator brought parts of the relics of St John the Baptist to Armenia from Caesarea. In the 14th century the relics were put in the silver cross-shaped reliquary – a gilded cross worked in jewels. St John the Baptist’s hand is engraved on the surface of a rectangular receptacle in the center of the cross.
