Congratulations, Lov, for finally untangling Baigent, Leigh, and by extension, Dan Brown. OK, so you're ten to fifteen (twenty?) years behind the curve, but it's less important when you round that bend than it is getting there at all.
Although I think Steve would be mortified that you're drawing off of an article more than a decade old, a lot has changed since then...
Now TCP did Baigent Leigh and Brown find Rosemertha in a corner of Jackson Square New Orleans along with the sickle carrying Hecate/Semele/Selene or Dionysius or Hesus?
I don't remember reading that...give me a page number pretty please
that is the twist ...its found in the land of Cajuns (acadiens)...who brought these legends with them
As for Steve ...I actually have the greatest respect for him and got along well with him
He has even included the Cajun connection in his work
As you can tell I really miss him ...he is a great professor
yes isn't that coin interesting
Libra and Virgo
Justitia is most often depicted with a set of scales typically suspended from her left hand, upon which she measures the strengths of a case's support and opposition. She is also often seen carrying a double-edged sword in her right hand, symbolizing the power of Reason and Justice, which may be wielded either for or against any party.
She was covered up by Ashcroft for being naked
The Power of LAW
In Greek mythology ASTRAIA (or Astraea) was the virgin-goddess of justice. During the Golden Age she dwelt upon the earth with mankind, but was driven away by the lawlessness of the later Bronze Age.Christian theologians have long studied the biblical meaning of the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. The Bible contains several references to the Zodiac (Mazzaroth) and Genesis chapter 49 likens each constellation to Israel's 12 sons. Several Biblical scholars have used astronomical records of Virgo to pinpoint the birthdate of Jesus Christ as stated in the Book of Revelation 12:1-2:
"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered."
Jesus was born under a woman signVirgo is the only constellation of a "woman" and is the starting point of the 12 biblical constellations or "crown of twelve stars". Within the year 3B.C. (assuming the lunar eclipse of Herod the Great's death to have occurred in 1B.C. when Jesus was 2 year old) Virgo was "clothed with the sun" between August 27 through September 15 as visible from Palestine. The moon was "under her feet" only on September 11th, between 6:18pm sunset and 7:39pm moonset. Biblical and astronimical scholars have verified the September 11th, 3B.C. star positions in Virgo including Ernest L. Martin and Victor Paul Wierwille . September 11th, 3B.C. is equivalent to Tishrei 1 of the Hebrew calendar, or the "Day of Trumpets", which some Christian scholars believe to be a significantly appropriate Hebrew day for the Messiah to be born, and a non-coincidental match with the Biblical prophesied events within the constellation Virgo.[11
