Photograph from the Great Wall of China by Seth T. Miller Janua Sophia means doorway wisdon. The Roman god Janus, whose name is derived from janua, is the god of both beginnings and endings. Typically, Janus is depicted as dual-faced, in symbolism of looking simultaneously forward and backward. Traditionally, temples to Janus had a doorway facing the East and a doorway facing the West. It is thus the humble mission of Janua Sophia to be like a doorway in thought, connecting the East and the West.
