@ Vanitas – Thanks for your patience........ !
All things come to those who wait, and so here it is.
The “ 12 Untersberg churches” are listed as follows on www.untersberg.org :
1. St. Bartholomä – am Königssee
2. Dom von Salzburg
3. Kirchenthal = Maria Kirchental bei Lofer
4. Feldkirchen bei Ainring
5. Gmain = Großgmain (Marienkirche !)
6. Seekirchen (Wallersee/Sbg.: Petruskirche)
7. Maxglan (Stadtteil v. Sbg.: Maximilianskirche)
8. St. Michael im Lungau (SalzburgerLand)
9. St. Gilgen am Wolfgangsee
10. St. Zeno in Bad Reichenhall
11. Mariaegg = Maria Eck bei Siegsdorf
12. St. Peter und Paul in Bad Reichenhall (no longer exists)
In addition I have found two other listed on www.kraftort.org, which lists “14 Untersberg Churches”
I have no idea whether the actual churches number 12 or 14, but going back to the Lazarus Eigner story, only 12 doorways to churches are mentioned.
But for the sake of this post, I will work with the 14.
I have now plotted the locations of these churches on the following map:
The churches are deonoted by the yellow circles, the Untersberg Mittagsscharte and Hoher Goll by green circles, and the Berghof, Kehsteinhaus and
Isais temple by red circles.
Rather annoyingly, St Michael im Lungau is so far away it spoils the zoomed in picture! So for the close up, I have just concentrated on the main area
around the Untersberg. You will see two lines heading off to the bottom right showing alignments – these lead to St Michael’s Church.
As an example of “alignments” I have found, and to make it easier to understand my rudimentary lines drawn on Google Earth, I will list them as
Salzberg Dom – Isais Temple – Berghof – Kehlsteinhaus
Hoher Goll – Isais Temple – Max Glan
Salzberg Dom – Kehlsteinhaus – St Bartholomew
Feldkirchen – Untersberg – Berghof – Hoher Goll
Feldkirchen – St Zeno – Maria Kirchental
Maria Eck – St Zeno – Maria Grossgmain – (Close to Untersberg) – Isais Temple
Max Glan – Isais Temple – Hoher Goll
Salzberg Dom – Stifftskirche Berchtesgaden - (close to Maria Gern) – St Bartholomew
Maria Kirchental – Maria Gern – St Gilgen
Maria Eck – St Batholomew – St Michael
St Michael – Hoher Goll – Kehlsteinhaus – Stifftskirche Berchtesgaden – St Zeno
Seekirchen – Max Glan – Grossgmain – Maria Kirchental
I believe that with a bit more study, and more accurate lines, further alignments are possible. I also suspect that more alignments with other more
recent (Nazi) buildings may well exist. But this will take further time to research. For the time being I will leave it as this.
On Untersberg.org they plot the churches generally (not on a map, but just as dots centred around the Untersberg), and link each individual church
back to the Untersberg, which serves as just one central point. This is to depict the Untersberg as the centrepoint for these churches, and show the
lines of energy emanating out from the mountain.
I personally think that a truer depiction of what is going on there is the link between the churches themselves (i.e alignments), rather than
individual links with the mountains.
And by the way, if you see pictures of some of these churches, they are worth a visit, just to see them.
There is probably more work to do with this, I just don’t know in which direction at the moment.
If anyone has any further thoughts, feel free to add them here.
