      Among the dog-headed soldiers we see Christ himself, as on the basis of His “seven words on the cross”, this was the psalm which he prayed before His death: And if the dog-headed people exist, then they are also subject to Christ’s call to the apostles: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.” (Mt 28,19).   The use of dog-headed men in iconography is not limited to the icon of St-Christopher. These enigmatic beings appear also in images of Pentecost, prominently in Armenian manuscripts, but also in Western images. Did St. Christopher Exist? Tracing St. Christopher’s life and death requires a lot of research. We don’t know his true identity.

    Less well known than the above-mentioned examples is the fact that dog-headed entities also feature in Celtic lore and mythology. As pointed out by Professor David Gordon White in his definitive book, Myths of the Dog-Man (), Irish legends tell of several cynocephalic people.   Inheriting unexpectedly at seventeen, Oswald has no experience of running an estate. He finds the years of plague and neglect have changed the old place dramatically. Before he can do anything, Oswald is confronted by the shocking death of a young woman. The ambitious village priest claims that she was killed by a band of demonic dog-headed men.
