The key to the mystery of Rennes-Le-Chateau.
It is said that the best way to hide something is to put it in plain sight. If you are a man with a particularly florid imagination and some ambition, a bit ‘outside the lines, you can also take the trouble to build around a very detailed set design, as well as to attract one of the looks and the attention of anyone who approaches, and for calculating or by accident, generating one of the most exciting mysteries of the twentieth century. This story begins in the late ’50s in the French town of Annemasse, at a time when a member of the extreme right founded an association called the Priory of Sion – C.I.R.C.U.I.T., named after a nearby mountain.
Pierre Plantard had a purely political intention to promote the return to power of the monarchy and chivalry, when he learned of a fact intended to change the structure of the Priory and his life. To the 800 the parish priest Berenger Sauniere, he was assigned to the village of Rennes-le-Château and, during the renovation of the old church dedicated to Mary Magdalene, had found “something” that had hidden jealously until his death. No one ever knew what it was, but it had spread rumors about the possibility that it was incontrovertible evidence capable of confirming an ancient legend. This in turn sank roots in one of the most baffling mysteries of all time, whose premises were outlined in the Golden Legend by Jacopo da Varazze, a work compiled in the thirteenth century, which narrated the lives of the saints and stated that c ‘it was a sequel to the crucifixion of Christ, and that Mary Magdalene had left Palestine, taking refuge in southern France, in a region that already housed a thriving Jewish community in which it would be received like a queen.
The position of prestige afforded to women would depend in part on its membership in the tribe of Benjamin, in part because she was carrying the fruit of his marriage with Jesus of Nazareth. From this heir he would have originated the line of kings known as the Merovingian.
According to the official story, the main branch of the Merovingian dynasty has been extinguished with the death of King Dagobert I as a result of a palace coup, but some folk tales implied that he had a legitimate son, Sigebert IV, that would be saved to ‘era of the crime, hiding in the Razes the region, the ancient name of the land on which stood Rennes-le-Château. Plantard, sensing the potential for these tales, had changed the connotation of their association, bringing it closer to Freemasonry and attributing esoteric features, and declared her a survival of an ancient Priory of Sion, was born at the time of the Templars in order to guard the secret of the lineage of Christ.
He then began to present himself as the heir last descendant of Dagobert I. This process had gone through the creation of a series of documents that had been deposited with the National Library of France in the late ’60s.
They were designed to give the impression of being intended for a small circle, in fact identified in the Priory, and they were taken away in tragic circumstances and mysterious at the same time, and then be made public accidentally. These documents are known as Dossiers of Henri Lobineau Secrets and constitute a very heterogeneous group, distinguished by newspaper articles, private letters, family trees and images. Although the same Plantard, repeatedly interviewed on the subject, he finally admitted that he had mounted a scam, it has always kept the suspicion that the whole thing had to have originated from that famous “grain of truth” common to many unsolved mysteries. Although he put his paw in a very creative way, Plantard was certainly not the author of all the stories on the characteristics of the Merovingian kings, the alleged marriage of Jesus to Mary Magdalene and the existence of a lost heir. In addition, within the dossier there is a particularly controversial document. It is a booklet of 13 pages, consisting of an introduction in verse (Avant-Propos) and a collection of images and excerpts from other works on the history of France and the city of Paris, whose title sounds “The Serpent Rouge – Notes of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Saint-Sulpice in Paris “.The document is, in essence, a kind of monograph oldest abbey at the origin of the French capital and one of its most famous churches. What link could have with the story of the lost dynasty or with the plans of Pierre Plantard? This question is all the more interesting, because in the verses that make up the brochure introducing obscure metaphors are mixed and explicit references both to the two churches of the title to that of Rennes-le-Château.
There is therefore a link between these places of worship so far apart? Circumstance even more surprising, no one has ever been able to understand the meaning of the verses, and the most credible explanations are limited to a few words or a few sentences, but they are not able to decipher every line in its entirety. It ‘possible that Pierre Plantard, in the course of research to collect material for his plans, he discovered something truly exceptional, creating the Serpent Rouge to guard? It ‘possible that the whole dossier has been put together specifically to camouflage the pamphlet and that the coils of the snake is the key entrusted to find the common thread, linking the three churches and unravel the hidden messages in the works decorate? The answer to these questions is yes. The collection of images, quotes, plants, included in the second part of the text has been specially designed to hide the clues needed to decipher the verses, and it is possible a consistent interpretation of the latter, word for word. The message is a version completely new and disconcerting not only acclimatized events in the church of Rennes-le-Château but also the role of Saint-Germain-des-Prés Saint-Sulpice before and beyond relating to the history of Paris and the cult of the Magdalene.
Beyond the Masonic symbolism of alchemy and esoteric references, to the claims of Pierre Plantard, the Serpent Rouge is therefore a very ingenious way to put something in plain sight in order to hide it.
This “something” is a secret that has influenced for many centuries the history of France, involving great artists, men of faith and rulers, staying on the sly, sometimes denied and purposely concealed, but still alive in the streets of the Capital city and in the shadow of the two large churches who are the sole survivors. It applies only in part of the heir to the legendary forgotten, and Rennes-le-Château, where the mystery takes its name, is not that a little note: the “the” that allowed the “voice of the blood to return the ‘image of an ancestral past “to tell us that Sauniere’s treasure there, and show us the way to find it.
