At sites such as Uruk and Jemder Nasr pentagrams were found on a tablet and pottery respectively.Although archaeologists hesitate to interpret the meaning of these symbols dating so far back, later depictions in Sumerian and Akkadian cuneiform texts refer to the five-pointed star as showing the regions of the inhabited world.Often this sigil has a goat drawn within the outline of the pentagram to represent Baphomet – the half-human, half-goat figure representing the devil.Previous to this occurrence the inverted pentagram appears to have made its first widespread appearance in the 19th century, and was used by the French occultist Stanislas de Guaita.Our beliefs, practices, morals, values and ethics are openly discussed within.To the best of our knowledge, all graphics and text on this site not copyrighted by The Celtic Connection are within the public domain unless otherwise noted.Essentially the only real difference between a pentacle and a pentagram is that they have different origins – one from Greek (pentagram) and one from Latin (pentacle).Some schools of Wiccan thought state that a pentacle is the five-pointed star with a circle enclosing it, and the pentagram is simply the five-pointed star by itself.
