It was the olive branch seen around the world, and it has us all in awe! On Tuesday, the feud between pop stars Katy Perry and Taylor Swift appeared to come to an end after many many years. Perry sent a wreath of actual olive branches to Taylor Swift.
(In case you didn't know, In the 5th century, an olive branch had become established as a Christian symbol of peace, St Augustine wrote in On Christian Doctrine that, "perpetual peace is indicated by the olive branch (oleae ramusculo) which the dove brought with it when it returned to the ark.")
Taylor planted a video of the peace offering on her Instagram account with the words “Thank you Katy” and the potent double-heart emoji.
