Everyday symbols such as the Freemason's set square or the lotus flower are familiar to nearly everyone, but few are aware of the true significance and fascinating origin of these signs. Originally used to provide protection from spirits, enhance mystical practices, or to maintain a secret, these symbols may have been misused, misunderstood or simply forgotten.

The Signs and Symbols Bible reveals the key ideas and sacred concepts behind over 500 signs and symbols, from those used by ancient religions to the glyphs of mediaeval magicians. This definitive guide is a fascinating exploration into a shadowy world where nothing is as straightforward as it seems.
