The Southern Cross is also deeply rooted in religion. Richard Hinckley Allen, a 19th century expert in stellar nomenclature, noted that the stars of the Southern Cross were last visible on the horizon in Jerusalem around the time that Jesus was crucified. As a result of precession, the Southern Cross eventually sank below the horizon for most of the northern hemisphere, where many religions perceive this as being resultant from the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
