    In the The Dream of the Rood the Cross tells the story of its encounter with Christ, casting itself as anti-hero. This study looks in depth at how that narrative tradition is reflected in three related poems on the Ruthwell Cross, the Brussels Cross and in the late 10th century manuscript of the Vercelli book.
