Head of Baphomet

This 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.
