Joining this thread a little late, image what would have happened if Constantine had seen a Star of David instead of a cross. "In this sign conquer..." It would make for an interesting alternate history--Judaism becoming the state religion of Rome. Although I should ask, how and when did the Star of David arise as a symbol? Would it have been a recognized symbol in Constantine's day? :Peter == _____ _____________________________________________________ | \ O) ...for Christ plays in ten thousand places, ) _|__/ | Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his | / |eter | To the Father through the features of men's faces. | | | | -Gerard Manley Hopkins, "As Kingfishers Catch Fire" | \___lark (_____________________________________________________(O _________________________________________________________ DO YOU YAHOO!?
