Exploration of the zoomorphic and Christian symbolism on zoomorphic penannular brooches (5th to 7th centuries AD). It is suggested that the underlying symbol of a bi-cephalic zoomorph has meanings that are not intrinsically antagonistic to Christian reading and permitted a smooth evolution from pagan to Christian iconography.
