Before Christianity existed, there was what is now commonly known as Paganism, which is also called Polytheism, the belief or worship of more than one God. Various triune or triple goddesses were commonly seen in ancient religions. The details of the rites, ceremonies, and beliefs were kept secret due to persecution, and consistently preserved from antiquity. As their core teaching became unacceptable, the Goddess teachings became the “Mysteries”.
Mary Magdalene was a Biblical figure who, according to the four canonical gospels, traveled with Jesus. Some organizations have asserted that her bloodline was of a special lineage, and that her children survive in the royal houses of Europe. The most common symbolic use of the skull is as a representation of mortality, but also with occult knowledge of spiritual immortality.
The mirror is an ancient symbol that is often seen with the Goddess. Besides the Moon, the Goddess is associated with the planet Venus, which is her name in ancient Rome, as it was Aphrodite in Greece, Ishtar in Babylon, Inanna in Sumer, Isis in Egypt, Astarte in Phoenicia, and many others.
Melusine or Melusina is a figure of European folklore and mythology, especially connected with the northern and western areas of France and Luxembourg. The House of Luxembourg (which ruled the Holy Roman Empire from AD 1308 to AD 1437 as well as Bohemia and Hungary), the Counts of Anjou and their descendants the House of Plantagenet (kings of England) and the French House of Lusignan (kings of Cyprus, Armenia, and Jerusalem) are said in folk tales and medieval literature to be descended from Melusine.
