Humanity has always used symbols - material objects used to denote difficult, abstract concepts-to describe thoughts and feelings, or to protect secret truths from common knowledge.
This concise A-Z guide is a fascinating work of reference that brings to light all the symbols and symbolisms of the world, many aspects of which have been lost to time, including Freemasonry, the Kabbalah, the tarot, astrology, alchemy, Zoroastrianism, and ancient cultures from Egypt to Japan.
