The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, poignant, ethical, and in the past, also cerebral core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the nerve centre of the human mind, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul, and stylized characterisation of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love. In religious texts the heart was historically attributed to much mystical significance, either as metaphor or as an organ sincerely believed to have spiritual or divine attributes. In the Bible, this idea emerges in the earliest passages; In the Book of Jeremiah 17:9, it is written that the Lord is the judge who “tries” the human heart. The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary are traditional Roman Catholic devotional images.
