The doveThe dove was widely used as the symbol of the Cathar Faith. Cathars shared this symbol with Roman Christianity. To the Romans it became the symbol for the Holy Spirit, after the trinitarian version of the faith was invented at the council of Nicea in 325. As the Cathar’s Good God is associated only with spiritual issues, it is possible the Roman Church “borrowed” this symbol from the early Cathars.
AphroditeThe dove, as a symbol of purity of spirit had however much earlier origins. In ancient Greece the dove was perceived as a symbol Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, and thus also invested with erotic connotations. As an attribute of the fertility goddess, the dove became a symbol of love between human beings, and between the deity and the worshipers. Aphrodyte was the Greek name for Isis, the Egypian Goddess, the mother of all life. In pre christian Rome Aphrodite became Venus the roman god of love and sexuality. The Caesars claimed descent from Venus, and therefore from Aphrodite and Isis through their ancestor Aeneus, the founder of the city of Rome.
The father figure of greek gods was Zeus.

Zeus was the father of Aphrodite and therefore in egyptian terms was the father of Isis. However in the Egyptian religion Isis had no father, she was the god head and centre of the mystery of creation. Zeus was probably a Greek creation to avoid the concept of a female god head.
