Symbology in God Emperor of Dune  
At the end of God Emperor of Dune, I found numerous references to Christian ideals and pagan teachings.

Leto - I see a sacrificial lamb, a Year King laying down his life for the Earth, or in this case the human race.

The Golden Path - The "via del rosa" or "path of the rose", which was the path Jesus led to the cross. As sources tell us, He suffered much pain and preternatural agony. As did Leto in his Golden Path. The further from human he went, the more passion he had for his lost humananity and mortality.

Hwi - the divine consort, such as Juno or Isis.

What other symbology do you see?
