hi,

have seen this rosette in various old UK churches - can anybody tell me what it symbolises please?

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~aferm/images/rosette.gif

in churches it is generally inscribed in stone and never coloured and always apparently the work of the laity as opposed to stone masons?

hope you can help? / thanks

Ric

I couldn't say about churches in Europe, but what you just showed is almost identical to certain Amish Dutch hex signs they hang on thier barns to ward off evil.

many thanks

yes the Dutch-American motif is known to me - but it sheds no light at all on the parish church engravings in the UK?

thanks again
