Les Bergere d'Arcadie John the Baptist SamHain Line


Quoted from A Hermeticist's Point of View

Here are the words of:

Pierre Plantard

Prieure de Sion Grandmaster

"It was this data that was incorporated into the architecture of sacred
buildings. The aim was to produce the ideal temple of the celestial
ladder, linking the constellations following geometric proportions by
means of 'the rule, the compass and the square''.

This was the marvellous dream that Jacob had on the stone:

"Here is the house of God, here is the gate of heaven".

Everything is not therefore at Gisors. Although this letter is important:
it is the way, the column, the ladder, the last nail in order to liberate
the Prisoner. "Come on, be brave! Some more jolts and the treasure
bought at the price of such tears and blood is yours." The traveller, in
visiting the Prisoner's Tower, also finds engraved in the stone a Saint
Nicholas and a date (the other side of the cube): 1575.

Now Nicholas is in Greek the seeker of the stone; it is he who revives the three children.

Every one has now heard of the Priory of Sion

But what exactly is SION?

Well the Abbey of Sion does exist

The manor was given by Rivers, Earl of Devon, to the abbey of St. Mar, Mountbarrow, in Normandy; passed, at the suppression of alien monasteries, to the abbey of Sion; went, at the final dissolution of monasteries, to Catherine, queen of Henry VIII.......

(extract from Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870-72))


The reason for the change was that his wife and Queen, Matilda, had founded an Abbey at Caen and this institution was given various estates in England to provide income. The manor remained under the control of Caen Abbey until 1338 when it was forfeited to the crown in view of the war with France at that time.

In 1420 the manor was given to the Abbey of Sion in Middlesex

So the Priory of Sion is also the Order of the True Rose Cross

But what is Zion/Sion?

Zion means fortress in Hebrew.

According to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance #6726 it is pronounced Tsiyown, tsee-yone; Tsijon (as a permanent capital), a mountain of Jerusalem --- Zion.

The word Zion is found 152 times in the Old Testament.

Sion is Strong's #7865 SIYON, see-ohn;

peak; Sion, the summit of Mount Hermon -- Sion.

However, Sion (Deuteronomy 4:48 for Mount Hermon) can also be used to define a district in Jerusalem (Psalms 65:1, KJV).

Remember, too, that Sion is the Greek spelling for Zion the seven times it is used in the King James Version.

All modern translations use Zion instead of Sion. Shenir, Strong's #8149 and Sirion, Strong's #8304 are words closely related to Sion.

However we have this curious piece from the 1920s:

"1927 "The face of the deep, of course, would be toward the Pleiades, which are claimed to be the habitation of Jehovah." (Creation; 1927; 2,175,000 ed.; p. 94)

1928 "The constellation of the seven stars forming the Pleiades appears to be the crowning center[sic] around which the known systems of the planets revolve even as our sun's planets obey the sun and travel in their respective orbits. It has been suggested, and with much weight, that one of the stars of that group is the dwelling-place of Jehovah and the place of the highest heavens;..." (Reconciliation; 1928; p. 14)

1928 "The constellation of the Pleiades is a small one compared with others which scientific instruments disclose to the wondering eyes of man. But the greatness in size of other stars or planets is small when compared with the Pleiades in importance, because the Pleiades is the place of the eternal throne of God." (Reconciliation; 1928; p. 14)" 

Extracts from Zion's Watchtower

The publication of the Jehovah's Witnesses

The central star of the Pleiades is


Pronounced Al-see-ohn

In Arabic AL means THE 

So what we have here is THE SION

The City of God (The Cité Sainte)




Jean Luc Chaumeil has said that Philippe de Chèrisey entrusted him with his confession in a forty four page treatise and asked him to release this after twenty years.

It is therefore lucky that people are still interested enough to care after the phenomenal success of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code.

Jean Luc can expect better than normal sales as a result. The timing is perfect for him isn't it?


The crudely drawn Plantard CONFESSION(?) appended at the top in red so we wont miss it.

Philippe de Chèrisey's parchment copies held up by Jean Luc Chaumeil.

 With the crudely drawn Plantard CONFESSION(?) appended.

The name Philippe de Chérisey added almost as an afterthought so that it is split over two lines halfway through a word.

The word 'photocopie' can clearly be seen at the top.


4 Rue de Mexico, Paris

Here apparantly

4 Rue de Mexico, Paris

Why is the forger photocopying his own creations?

Could someone explain to Jean Luc Chaumeil that photocopied documents can be easily faked and are therefore not proof of anything.


Stone and Paper?

Can someone please explain to me why a person who one day decides to concoct a phrase that turns out to be nonsense then decides to sit down and write a forty four page treatise describing how he made up the nonsense.

What for? A simple - It's all nonsense - signed  XXXXXXX

Would suffice.

But we also have this:


"The Abbé Saunière [did] discover parchments in the church Sainte Madeleine of Rennes-le-Chateau, their contents have nothing to do with papers published that and there. It is the same for those which he exhumed thereafter. The screen of the novel of Gerard de Sède is astute. All starts in 1888 with the discovery of mysterious encrypted parchments and it is the decoding whose key is engraved on a tomb which gives access to the treasure. Doesn't that point out anything to you? As for the famous documents published and analyzed by Gerard de Sède (and others...), their appearance falls under the context which I briefly have just exposed. They were not intended for general public, not more than the famous booklets. These papers were used as support with an exchange of messages coded between networks in action, even in competition. They have nothing to do with a treasure of some nature that it is. However elsewhere, the authentic texts in fact are engraved in the stone."

Gino Sandri, Secrétaire of the Priory of Sion

Perhaps I should add that Philippe de Cherisey reported that he had documents stolen in a burglary at his premises at 37, Rue Saint Lazare and that these came into the possession of Gérard de Sède. Henry Lincoln hints in The Key to the Sacred Pattern that these may have included de Chérisey's Pierre et Papier, now supposedly held by Jean Luc Chaumeil. Gino Sandri also mentions this in his interview, referring to the 'possessor of the documents' as a singer and part time journalist.



So what is the truth? 

Whatever the knowledge is it is dangerous

Comedian Michael Bentine
(former RAF Intelligence and seconded to MI9, a unit that was dedicated to supporting resistance movements and helping prisoners escape from France during WWII and who once trained the SAS at their HQ in Hereford)

He once told the Rennes Research Group that investigating Rennes le Chateau can be dangerous.

Michael Bentine had a lifetime interest in the supernatural.

He was right....It is dangerous

This story features unsolved murders.
