Mr Leveller, I read the article you linked to with great interest and although much of it was not new to me, there were a few pieces there I hadn't
heard before. As such I took away the relevant references and will endevour to catch up with those at some stage.
Further to our previous exchanges I feel you may believe that I in some way am a fan of the ' Bloodline Theory .'
If that should be the case let me assure you, that this is not so. I believe it to be poppycock of the highest order. As to the Priory, I am at this
stage still unsure of their true date of inception or their true agenda.
I do believe however that the subject at hand, being the lineage and protection of knowledge of the esoteric groups 0 bc to present, is not truly
understood mostly due to the many false leads, some the product of over imaginative authors others by groups requiring some accreditation through
association. To that end I enjoy sifting through the stories and making my own mind up. I sometimes, in conversation, use the stories as proof of
enough evidence to warrant closer inspection. I feel I must justify my cause thus, because any airing of the potential links between groups and
ideaology are often shouted down by people who are convinced that because of the odd fraud there is,
' nothing to see here '
In particular reference to the Abbe Saunier Rennes-le-Chateau affair, there has indeed been many unhelpful books written on the subject, however the
Unexplained increase in income for Saunier at the same time of his renovatons.
The architecture of the church itself ( still standing for your inspection )
The popularity of the church with leading occultists from Paris, including Calve et al.
The murder of contempary and friend of Saunier Antoine Gelis.
Gelis was the parish priest of the village Coustassa situated on the other side of the valley to Rennes le Chateau. He was known to have met with
Saunier days after the discovery of a tomb at Rennes le Chateau. He too came into some money directly after the renovations at Rennes le Chateau, some
14,000 fr. This money was left behind after his murder despite his house being completely ransacked. After the murder Gelis' body was laid out
ritualistically and the murderer had written a note,' viva Angelina.' More interestingly his tombstone ( apart from the others and facing Rennes le
Chateau ) was engraved with the Rose Cross!!!
When in the 1960's this death was investigated there were no church records of the incident and information was collected at a later date from the
Without the use of the words ' Priory of Sion ' this tale is most interesting in regard to the bigger picture discussed earlier. I also feel it is
justified to use this story, as was the intention of my original post, as proof of secret societies within the church at this time, and potentialy at
all times since the birth of christianity to present.
