3 Crowns

3 Crowns The monogram with which the title-page of the Latin Vulgate is ornamented, which, as I have stated, was given me by a Catholic priest. It is placed on the breast of an allegorical figure which wears three crowns—three crowns, not solely, if it be at all, emblematical of Heaven, Earth, and Hell, but also emblematical of an incarnation of the Creator, the Preserver, and the Destroyer—an incarnation of the Trinity or the Trimurti. http://members.tripod.com/~pc93/anacv2b3.htm
