New diatribe from Smith
Creating a New Age version of Christianity?
Welcome to the
the Priory-of-Sion.com website that provides the salient facts about
the lies told about the
Priory of Sion and Rennes-le-Château.
Find out all the
about the Abbé Bérenger Saunière and Pierre Plantard here!
Was the Abbé Bérenger Saunière
really wealthy and did he discover a treasure and parchments or was he just
another French priest?
Take a walk into his church and you'll know straight away
Was Pierre Plantard
really the Grand Master of several secret societies
(actually he was one of three who claimed the position)
and the direct descendant of the Merovingian Kings?
Possibly one of thousands I suspect.
What is the real truth about Pierre Plantard’s life?
answers to these questions can all be found on
Bérenger Saunière’s "wealth" is a myth that
first originated during the mid-1950s. Saunière’s entire estate was only valued
at 18,000 Francs by the Credit Foncier de France in 1913 when Saunière had asked
it for a loan because by that time he did not have enough money to even buy
"Bérenger Saunière’s "wealth" is a myth that first
originated during the mid-1950s."
Proof Please? I hereby give notice that all of your bluffs
will be called.
This was not the first time that Abbé
Saunière had asked for a loan in order to eat.
Abbé Saunière lived in poverty
for most of his life except for the period between 1896-1905 and we have the
relevant paperwork to
prove it – Abbé Saunière lived from the selling of masses during the years
1896-1905 and the paperwork for that exists as well.
Saunière's wealth was either spent or given to Marie
Denarnaud, it is true that most of his income dwindled from 1905 onwards and
during the war years as he was unable to travel. He kept his own records of his
selling of masses, a little strange that he should keep records of the very
thing that could get him into trouble. Most Priests had been guilty of selling
masses, Saunière probably kept records that condemned himself because he did not
wish for too many enquiries into where he really got the money. There was
nothing special about Saunière in regard to this matter. The only thing that
unusual about Saunière was his expenditure. WE have the relevant paperwork for
this too. It is not certain that Saunière ever had ANY money of his own, but boy
did he spend it.
Here is a small section from one of his so-called lean

Furniture. That is over half as much again on the estimate he received for the
rebuilding of the whole church. He had spent 5 011,70 F
with the same company on 28th Oct
the previous year.
Over 12000 francs for furniture alone and wait until you
see his bread bill. But I guess somehow Saunière's
records here wont be believed whereas his ones for his selling masses will be.
Selective evidence will become a well represented feature on this website. His
housemaid Marie Denarnaud never worked again for 40 years after Saunière's
death, nice little earner this selling of masses.
Question for you. What would a man who has a guaranteed
large income want with a bank account? What's he saving for? A rainy day?
There's not going to be any rainy days. The money comes in and if you haven't
got anything to spend it on at that moment, you give it away. Which is precisely
what Sauniere did.
Monsignor Billard, Abbé
Saunière's Bishop, was far more wealthier - he inherited over a million Francs
in 1891 from a rich widow and he too, lived from selling masses and, like Abbé
Saunière, was eventually to become suspended from his sacerdotal duties over
allegations relating to financial impropriety within the Church.
So let me get this straight. He inherits a large amount of
money but sells masses for money - Erm! WHY?

So why mention them? Smith hasn't got the first damn clue
what's in them.
Pierre Plantard got into serious
trouble in 1993 with
Judge Thierry Jean-Pierre
because he claimed that Roger Patrice Pelat was a "Grand Master of the Priory of
Sion" - and the Judge was heading an investigation into Pelat’s activities that
involved financial improprieties - it was following this incident in September
1993 that Plantard ceased his Priory of Sion activities and lived out the rest
of his life in isolation.
Somehow Smith seems to think that because these people were
bad then the whole story must be fake. I guess there must be some logic there
Smith's slight of hand designed to
Paul Smith is required immediately
to alter a statement he made
Pierre Plantard, Judge
and the End of the Priory of Sion in 1993
Although Pierre Plantard "officially retired" from
Priory of Sion activities during the mid-1980s following a conflict with
the French author Jean-Luc Chaumeil, who discovered details about
Plantard's past and published the Statutes of the Alpha Galates, Plantard
did not stop contriving his schemes – he continued underground with his
Priory of Sion fantasies and later revived it in a different form with a
different myth and pedigree in 1989, claiming that Roger-Patrice Pelat was
one of its Grand Masters during the interim period of 1984-1992. See
here for an explanation.
When Judge Thierry Jean-Pierre became the presiding
French Judge heading the enquiry into the Patrice Pelat financial
corruption scandal of the 1980s, Plantard voluntarily came forward during
the 1990s offering evidence to the enquiry, claiming that Pelat had been a
"Grand Master of the Priory of Sion". The Judge ordered a search of
Plantard's house which uncovered a hoard of Priory of Sion Documents,
claiming Plantard to be the "true King of France" – the Judge subsequently
detained Plantard for a 48 hour interview and, after asking Plantard to
swear on Oath – Plantard admitted that he made
everything up; whereupon Plantard was given a serious warning and advised
not to "play games" with the French Judicial System.
This happened in September 1993 and it was all reported in the French
Press of the period. This was the reason for the final termination of the
Priory of Sion in 1993 and the subsequent life-in-hiding for Pierre
Plantard, never to reappear in public again or to be involved with his
Priory of Sion fantasy again.
Between 1993 and his death in 2000 Pierre Plantard
shuttled backwards and forwards from Barcelona, Perpignan and Paris. His
remains were cremated when he died in February 2000.
ONLY admitted that he made everything up about Pelat about his status as a
Priory of Sion Grand Master.
PLANTARD HAS NEVER ADMITTED THAT HE
MADE EVERYTHING UP ABOUT THE PRIORY OF SION.
The Priory of Sion still operates. See
Plantard thought that the
Multi-Millionaire Pelat, who was the financial backing of the French President
François Mitterrand was the member of the Prieuré de Sion secret society.
He probably was it's just that Plantard didn't have any proof only a hunch. In
any case Plantard didn't use the words 'he made everything up' he said that he
didn't have the proof.
This is a deliberate attempt at deception, Smith should
immediately alter his ambiguous statement.
