... Washington, D.C., in Eliphas Lévi's book, Dogme et rituel de la haute magie (
Doctrine and Ritual of High Magic), published in 1855. Lévi, a French student of
the occult and magic, became fascinated with the subject in the mid-1800s, like

But it was not a common symbol and has not survived in widespread use. The
inverted pentacle wasn't an inherently “evil” symbol when Pierre L'Enfant was
