The Legend of the Gypsy Who Stole the Crucifixion Nail


The Gypsies were skilled Blacksmiths and there’s a legend that goes along with that part of their history. The story is that a Gypsy made the four nails for the Cross of Jesus. But the Gypsy Blacksmith stole one of the nails. The story continues that God then granted this Gypsy’s descendants the right to steal when they needed to. Paintings of the Crucifixion began showing three nails instead of four at about the same time period Gypsies arrived in Europe.
