Compasses in Bible art

The idea of God as a "Great Architect" predates speculative Freemasonry: here reproduced from the Bible Moralisée, circa 1250. [Bible moralisee. Codex Vindobonensis 2554 der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek. Darmstadt 1998. Lizenzausgabe für die Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft.]

Further examples can be seen in such works as Albrecht Dürer’s Melencolia, and Astronomer,and mediaeval manuscripts.
