Head of Baphomet
was an interesting discovery made public in 1818 concerning the history
of secret societies. Found among the antiquities of the imperial museum
of Vienna were some idols named the heads of Baphomet,
which the Templars adored. These
heads represented the divinity of the Gnostics,
named Mele or Wisdom.For some time there was preserved at Marseilles
one of these gilded heads, seized in a retreat of the Templar when the latter
were pursued by the law. A.G.H.
