823. And upon His head were many diadems signifies the Divine truths of the Word from Him. "Upon the head" signifies from the Lord; for by the head wisdom from love is signified; and man is ruled from the head by wisdom from love. "Diadems upon the head" were seen because the Divine truths of the Word, which are signified by "diadems," are from Him. That "diadems" signify the Divine truths of the Word, may be seen (n. 231, 540). That "the head" when speaking of the Lord, signifies the Divine wisdom of the Divine love (n. 47); what more is signified by the head (n. 538, 565). In the spiritual world the Divine truths of the Word correspond to diadems, and they appear there from correspondence, and in heaven upon the head of those who hold the Word as holy. Hence it is that "diadems" signify the Divine truths of the Word in the sense of its letter. The reason is, because the sense of the letter is translucent from its spiritual and celestial sense, as a diadem is from light.
