A Heavenly Riddle

(Minor edit)

Pagan is my type and title

Jesus my first born,

Muted in His lordly pain

From Lamb was golden shorn.

At my feet upon the stone

Where heaven’s light has bowed

Are written in the hands of men

Glyphs to claim a crowd.

East to West where marks the best

Of those who first unspoken

Paved the way for those today

Who capture hearts oft broken.

Pagan is my type and title - Archetype / stonehenge? / Archangel?

Jesus my first born, - Son of David, the Patriarch

Muted in His lordly pain - perhaps the form of the crucifix?

From Lamb was golden shorn. - Old McDonald's Farm + golden arches

At my feet upon the stone - The arch of your feet

Where heaven’s light has bowed - perhaps the wave form of light?

Are written in the hands of men - arch style of fingerprint

Glyphs to claim a crowd. - the Peace Arch? Or musical arch?

East to West where marks the best - Archery

Of those who first unspoken - being sly? EDIT: Archaic. =P

Paved the way for those today EDIT: Architecture

Who capture hearts oft broken.

Interesting and well-thought out analysis MM. I think that particular style however, where each line contains a cryptic word play to support the same term, is common for another poster on this board, not me. The lines and stanzas taken as a whole support the answer, with many word clues thrown in for good measure : )

Of note: This is not a mundane item. It is a unique X with a very specific name with which some younger members here may be unfamiliar. Some research might be required.

And just to be clear, nothing right so far. Good luck!

Erm i Know I'm crazy....

Greek Gods/History

Pagan is my type and title - People used to worship the Greek Gods and maybe they still do? So i assume it could be some form of religion

Jesus my first born, - Now it was said the the Greek Gods had kids with mortals etc i.e Achilles, Jason, Heracles(Hercules) Perseus etc.

Muted in His lordly pain - They would have to suffer - Athena beat Posiedon and the city was named after her. Zeus was caught in a Golden net and humilated after being a bad leader etc.

From Lamb was golden shorn. The story of the Golden Fleece

At my feet upon the stone - Battles fought etc. Prometheus was tied up to a stone for eternal punishment.....

Where heaven’s light has bowed - Th culture has been everywhere (if you understand what i am trying to say)

Are written in the hands of men - Scars? I had an idea, forgotten though :S

Glyphs to claim a crowd. Greek architecture

East to West where marks the best Greece located in the East and came before Roman time (located in the West)

Of those who first unspoken - heroes etc.

Paved the way for those today Built things, fought things and inspire people etc.

Who capture hearts oft broken. - People fall in love with the heroes.

I know, I know. I've done this for no reason and it's wrong. But hey, at least i had a shot right? And please don't make judgements.... :)

No to all but one answer is very much on target, just not a bull's eye.

Oh... I think I have it now

It is either stars, which as already been said... so I'm going with constellations or astrology.

It all fits with that.

The stars are with the heavens, the star for Jesus' birth.

Glyphs to claim a crowd are our zodiac signs.

Astrology/Zodiac, for sure. Constellations might be a bit too close to "Heavenly".

Jesus is a Capricorn. =P And I think you nailed it with "Glyphs to claim a crowd" The second stanza might detail the newspaper and how the horoscope is written by men. The third stanza is likely the adaption of the horoscope from Eastern cultures.

Nice, Chad. =P A very overarching answer.

It's based on a comparison I made at the bottom of page 1 involving the word 'arch'.

Graumen's Chinese Theater

East meets west ("type" is style and "title"-- Chinese is pagan in all ways) At its feet are the stars of Hollywood fame. It opened with the premiere of Demille's "King of Kings" about the crucifiction of Christ. Well done gentlemen. And yes, I don't understand why Plasmid didn't hammer the nail into this one

AND BAM!! Double tribute on this one, Plasmid and DD both,

Grauman's (Mann's) Chinese Theatre
