Church Candle Vintage

CAD $30.00

Excellent condition vintage 1960’s amazing detail.

Candles are used in religious rituals & for spiritual means as both functional & symbolic lights. It was believed that if Holly was placed by your doorway it would aid in protection & invite helpful spirits into the home.

As Christianity swept into pagan lands, and it officially replaced the old religions, sometimes remnants of the old culture and religion remained, however, and rather than discarding the old gods entirely, some cultures re-branded the native gods as Christian saints. Sacred spaces were approtiated and churches built on them. Jesus was nothing more than a copy of popular dying-and-rising fertility gods in various places—Tammuz in Mesopotamia, Adonis in Syria, Attis in Asia Minor, and Horus in Egypt. Of note is the fact that none of the stories and attributes of pagan deities became the stories and attributes of saints, although this was done at a popular level more often than at an official level.
