Iconic in modern-day neo-paganism, the Green Man is a frequent adornment to the wood and stonework of medieval churches.
He is commonly assumed to represent pagan resistance to the spread of Christianity and first began to appear in circa the 11th Century, when Christian monks started adorning the margins of their manuscripts with Green Men and other pagan icons. Why they did this, no-one knows..
Today the Green Man is also known as the Man of the Wood and is often thought of as a personification of nature..
