View Full Version : Hidden Symbols: Origins of European Crosses

I read something interesting while going through Guido Von List's Secret of the Runes.

He states that as christianity swept beyond the roman empire, pagan groups were attempting to implant thier natural laws into christian interpretations, He goes over the connection between pagan sacrifice and the symbolic gesture of eating the flesh and blood of christ, and represenations of scenery and landscape in medieval architecture and even the etymology of german wordings for Food, especially baked goods involving bread, the first food humans produced artifically as our own creation.

I wont go into most of that, but he proposed that the formation of these various cross designs were intentionally carried out by dark and middle aged guilds, proto freemasons and certian brotherhoods within the church to carry on the teachings of the aincent truths, these were represented by iconographic images of formerly pagan symbols that were encrypted into christian imagery. at times the church would get wind of a heretical sence to the reasoning of the group and deem it heretical, so over the course of centuries the symbols had to be hidden further into the makeup of the picture, only so those looking for it could detect it, leaving a commited christian nothing but christian symbols to take in or so they thought consciencely, this double effect preserved the knowledge of the region's past while not conflicting with the prevailing faith of the time.

Possibly even being completly forgotten consciencely by everyone as time progressed, even by the groups whose descendants once knew of the origins of the process. So now it would be a subconscience or unaware influence within what people would deem awarely or consciencely a christian symbolic image.

For this case it is now what we call the 18th rune, considered among other things a sun wheel or fylfot. The correlation is to these three adaptations of the cross from European areas "mainly Germanic too".

So have you any more facts tied to this or any feedback? Id like to hear more on it.

just to clarify, the cross examples on the left are split into evenly placed designs that would create the crosses shown if pushed back together to perfectly invert one another from the center of the cross/sun wheel "swastika".

Because everyone knows that without the theft of pagan aesthetic and symbolism/rites, Christianity is fodder.
