Bloodlines Of The Chosen
In Christianity, during the medieval period lasting approximately from the 5th to the late 15th centuries, unicorns are often considered an allegory of Christ’s journey. In the study of alchemy, the horn is the symbol for virility and sacred union. The powder ground from the unicorn’s horn was believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac, or eternal life, and further reputed to purify polluted waters. More from Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.
