The earliest use of the pentagram dates back to 3500 BC. The Chaldees of Mesopotamia inscribed the symbol on their pottery and other artifacts. The Hebrews used the pentagram as a symbol of truth and to represent the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures. The Pythagoreans of ancient Greece were fascinated by the mathematical purity of the symbol and viewed it as a sign of perfection. Ancient Babylonians used the pentagram to represent the gods and religious beliefs of their culture. The pentagram, or pentacle, is a geometric symbol consisting of five lines connecting end to end to form a five pointed star. Found in several geometric figures, this mathematical ratio was first recognised by the Greek mathematician Pythagoras. According to Pythagoras, the five points of the pentagram each represent one of the five elements that make up man: fire, water, air, earth, and spirit.
