Abstract: Oriġinarjament il-mazza kienet arma tal-ġlied, jew għad-difiża ta' xi ħadd, użata kemm fi gwerra, tornei jew minn gwardji personali ta' xi persunaġġ għoli jew importanti. Minn din l-arma żviluppa wkoll ix-xettru, li naraw f'idejn renjanti, imma anke fost l-oħrajn fi xbihat ta' Kristu bħala Sultan jew tal-Madonna, mhux biss meta tkun murija bħala Sultana, iżda wkoll meta murija bħala difensura, bħal fil-każ ta' ċertu tip ta' xbihat tal-Madonna tas-Sokkors (fejn ħafna drabi jintwera bħala bastun jew mazza - clava - tal-injam) jew tal-Għajnuna tal -Insara.
