Not sure if u can help me or not but I’ve searched & searched & searched some more for a couple of months now trying to find something even remotely close to what I’ve encountered?!? I can’t give all the details but I have a drawing that I would like to know what it’s meaning is and/or even if you can tell me anything about it?!? How does this work, through email?!? Because I would like to keep this discreet?!? I would like to email you a picture of the drawing. Thanks!

I attended a Switchfoot concert a few weeks ago. They are a Christian rock group. During the concert they had some subliminal type symbols flash on the screen and quickly disappear. I made it a point to sketch out the symbol after the concert and I am trying to find someone who can interpret the symbol. It didn’t look right to me. Can I send a picture of what this image looked like for interpretation? Thanks!

One symbol found in church history is the burning bush, from around 1583 onward.

Hi
I’ve got on old crucifix which is only 3.5cm high by about 2cm wide. It is extremely old and has lots of little symbols on it. I’m interested to know what they mean and i’d also like to get an idea of how old it is. Can anyone assist? I can email a picture.
Regards Troy

The second row, first symbol.. what does it mean?
The one where two dragons are making a circle and there is another sign inside?

Thanks in advance :)

What you have there is a masonic emblem with a lot of alchemical influence. The outer dragons are an emblem usually representing the principle of volatility, basically flux. Notice there is a winged creature and a more wormlike creature, so you have a duality of earth/air or even matter/spirit. So probably representing sulfur and mercury (volatile and ‘fixed,’ or stable principles) The inner emblem is a combined compass/square and hermetic hexagram: http://symboldictionary.net/?p=2463 The allusion of course is to the use of masonry to complete the ‘hermetic work.’

I thought the griffin is a symbol of jesus too, since its part eagle ( king of the skies, which is jesus` heavenly half) and part lion (king of the jungle, which is jesus` earthly half) and when put together makes a griffin ( jesus part god, part human).

In answer to your second, I’ve seen the ankh used, but I don’t recall how long that went on. I’ll see if i can find a reference.

Most of those are here, in various categories. A few categories are waiting to be transitioned from the old site.

You should add Eye of Providence (Christian), Christian Pentagram (mostly used by Mormons now), Morning Star (Longer inverted pentagram, mostly used by Mormons now), Anglican Cross, Patriarchal Cross and Celtic Cross (Christian one here, and Christian in pagan section to replace by shortened one).
And I have a question… Was original Egyptian Ankh used by Copts anytime? In some sites I read that he is used from 4 century, to 9 century.

The link to the meaning of the papal cross is broken. And that’s just the cross I want to know more about… Because, it reminds me of the kabbala too…

Can you help me?

Kind greatings,
