There is a thesis according to which the Templars in Palestine would have found the remains of the decapitated skull of St. John the Baptist. The name Baphomet could be derived from Baphi-Meta, ancient Greek for “Baptism” and “Knowledge”. But it could also be an abbreviation obtained from the first letters read in reverse of the phrase: “Templum omnium komnium pacis abbas”: “TemO-H-P-AB” (symbol of the Order of the Templars).
Symbols: Incarnation of the duality of being.
Meanings as a talisman or amulet: It symbolizes the perfection of nature: everything is contained in everything.
