Occult Interest

The earliest known history of the All-Seeing Eye dates back to ancient Babylon. It was worshiped as the Solar Eye -- a picture of the sun god. It was also represented as the eye of Jove or Jupiter. It has been called the eye of Phoebus or Apollo. It was also referred to as the eye of Baal, and as the Eye of Providence.

Roger Williams entered Boston in the Massachusetts Bay from England onboard the ship Lyon (Lion). Williams was granted a charter in 1643 "to hold forth a lively experiment that a most flourishing civil state may stand and best be maintained with full liberty of religious concernments." Because of his policy of complete religious toleration, Rhode Island became a haven for refugees from bigotry.
