      (A cross post from A.R.E.)

      Looking for more information about
      "Hu the Serpent". [see below]


      "The Druids had a high veneration for the
      Serpent. Their great god, Hu, was typified
      by that reptile; and he is represented by
      the Bards as 'the wonderful chief Dragon,
      the sovereign of heaven'."

      [George Oliver, Signs and Symbols, 1906]


      "The serpent is the symbol and prototype
      of the Universal Savior, who redeems the
      worlds by giving creation the knowledge of
      itself and the realization of good and evil."

      [Manly P. Hall, 33 Degree Mason, The Secret
      Teachings of All Ages , the Philosophical Re-
      search Society Press, p. lxxxviii.]

      "It is the body of the Holy Spirit, the
      Universal Agent, the Serpent devouring its
      own tail."

      [Morals and Dogma, teachings of the 28th
      Degree, Knight of the Sun, or Prince Adept]



      Charles Heckethorn, in The Secret Societies
      of All Ages & Countries, says:

      "Their temples wherein the sacred fire was
      preserved were generally situate on emin-
      ences and in dense groves of oak, and
      assumed various forms--circular, because
      a circle was the emblem of the universe;
      oval, in allusion to the mundane egg, from
      which issued, according to the traditions
      of many nations, the universe, or, according
      to others, our first parents; serpentine,
      because a serpent was the symbol of Hu, the
      Druidic Osiris; cruciform, because a cross
      is an emblem of regeneration; or winged, to
      represent the motion of the Divine Spirit.
      * * * Their chief deities were reducible to
      two--a male and a female, the great father
      and mother--Hu and Ceridwen, distinguished
      by the same characteristics as belong to
      Osiris and Isis, Bacchus and Ceres, or any
      other supreme god and goddess representing
      the two principles of all Being."
