Joachim of Fiore (aka "Joachim of Flora" and "Gioacchino da Fiore" [in Italian]) (c. 1135 – March 30, 1202)—was an Italian mystic, a theologian and an esoterist. He used the old English Name, "IEUE" for the tetragrammaton in his diagrams of the trinity [we do not believe in the trinity—but that we can still learn from his work]. "His famous Trinitarian 'IEUE' interlaced circles diagram was influenced by the different 3-circles Tetragrammaton-Trinity diagram of Petrus Alphonsi, and in turn led to the use of the Borromean rings as a symbol of the Christian Trinity (and possibly also influenced the development of the Shield of the Trinity diagram). (Wikipedia: Joachim of Fiore). His diagrams are kept in the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, England, UK—and have the reference number, "MS CCC 255A f.7v.". Below is the highest resolution image we could find of his, "IEUE" diagram from the University of Virginia [Retrieved 2013-06-02].
