    Interesting is also the lecture of Graham Speake, which he gave at the monastery at Hereford (A Joint Symposium at Belmont Abbey, Hereford, 29th to 30th March 2005):

    Wikipedia says: Usage by Christians
    The hexagram may be found in some Churches and stained-glass windows. Example of this is one embedded in the ceiling of the Washington National Cathedral. Because a similar-looking sign called the encircled pentagram is used in occultism, it was not used in church architecture until Christian architects, both Protestant and Catholic, began to accept the notion that the Star of David is an old Jewish sign.[citation needed] In Christianity it is often called the star of creation.
