The Point Within A Circle

This is a symbol of great interest and importance, and brings us into close connection with the early symbolism of the solar orb and the universe, which was predominant in the ancient sun-worship. The lectures of Freemasonry give what modern Monitors have made an exoteric explanation of the symbol, in telling us that the point represents an individual Brother, the circle the boundary line of his duty to God and man, and the two perpendicular parallel lines the patron saints of the Order: Saint John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangelist. But that this was not always its symbolic signification, we may collect from the true history of its connection with the phallus of the Ancient Mysteries
