As part of the cultural meetings of Saint-Joseph de Cance, conference offered by Daniel Breysse on The sailors' crosses.

The appearance of sailors' crosses is difficult to date. They reached their peak during the towing period on the Rhône River (1750 - 1850).
The sailors were pious and placed themselves under the protection of the Virgin and their patron saint Saint Nicholas.
Come and discover this world with sailors' crew crosses, salon crosses, portable altars, passion bottles...
