Nearly everywhere in the Old World, purple denoted the Divine. The French school system uses it to designate those in Divinity studies. Biblically, Purple is associated with royalty, and wealth. By extension, then, it also represents corruption. But, it is also associated with the awesomeness of God. The Veil was made of Blue and Purple. Blue represents heaven, the abode of God. Purple represent authority, which ultimately all rests with God. It was the veil that separated man from the holiest things of God until Jesus tore the veil away, having paid the price for sin.
The Byzantine rulers were "born to the Purple" according to man, a perversion of the reality of new birth in Christ. Those who believe, however, are truly born to the Purple. They are the kings and priests who will forever rule and reign with the King of kings and Lord of lords.
