That one of the oldest churches in Paris, St. Merri, has a Baphomet on top of the front door.
It’s covered up though, more of the front door. “For protection against damage”.
And we do not know the precise reason why St. Merri has a Baphomet. It also has an inverted pentagram atop of a…

“As we have seen, Levi’s image of Baphomet is not a representation of the Christian Devil but a symbol of the astral light, the dual current of occult force behind all magical work. This force may be employed for either good or evil ends, but is neither good nor evil in itself. Perhaps if Mr. Waite had understood this important point, he wouldn’t have demonized the Baphomet image in the Rider-Waite Tarot deck.”
Heaven forbid Waite made the card as a blind or preventative measure against the stupidity of the masses.
It’s not like it’s understood by everyone with vaguely masonic traditions that the devil is the reason why we have the capacity for reason in the first place.
No, clearly Waite demonized the image intentionally.

Because higher wages mean more expensive goods and customers don’t want to pay higher prices. While it would make for a simpler narrative, companies like Walmart, Gap, and H&M that have operations in Bangladesh outsource the making of their clothing lines overseas not simply because they want to exploit people on the other side of the world, but because we their customers all but force them to do it. While most of us would be appalled if we saw the working conditions and knew the wages of the people that make the clothes we wear and would no doubt shout our anger from the roof tops, our wallets tell a different story. Our wallets, or more specifically our spending habits reveal the cold hard reality that most of us just don’t give a shit about where we get our clothes, so long as we get them for cheap. Worse yet, as Tony Campolo would say, most of us in the church care more about fact that I just said “shit” than the fact that countless men, women, and children suffer and die everyday as a direct result of our lust for low, low prices. Which is why the problem of evil is hanging in our closets.

It is obvious that this writer has no clue about the complexity of the problem when they talk about low prices at the Gap. What about service workers in the US who can’t afford to pay more? What about the amounts spent on marketing and executive salaries that far exceed the cost of production?

Pretty medieval manuscript of the day is a girdle book. This book, a philosophical tract by Boetheius (the consolation of philosophy), was bound in such a way that it was possible to tie it to the owner’s girdle (belt) and refer to it throughout the day. Although the book and the binding date from the fifteenth century, the catalogue record suggests this is not the original binding. The book is thought to have originated in England, but the binding is Dutch or German, and the book is now in America at Yale University’s Beinecke Library. What travels it has had!

Today we can relate to Hecate as a guardian figure in our unconsciousness, holding the key to the dark realms within us and bearing torches to light our way into the depths of our inner being.
