The following is a preface written by Pierre Plantard to
the 1979 reprint of Boudet's book
LA VRAIE LANGUE CELTIQUE ET LE CROMLECK DE RENNES LES
My grandfather Charles, legitimate successor of the counts
of Rhedae, yielding to the invitation addressed to him by the Abbé Bérenger
Saunière, parish priest of Rennes-Le-Château (Aude), visited him June 6, 1892.
Among those present were the Abbé Henri Boudet and M. Elie Bot. In his notes my
grandfather recounts his passage: "... A monkey, called Mela, a gift from a
great singer, playing with a puppy called pomponette enlivened lunch. Boudet,
the priest of Rennes-les-Bains, neighboring parish, seemed a man so anxious to
go out that Saunière was the light. Both Saunière, burly brown with black eyes,
of near 1.80 m, seemed as much Boudet, with 1.70 m, its thinness and lavender
eyes, disappeared. In between, Mr.. Elie Bot, right arm Saunière, stocky and
strong, was the adviser and the contractor work. But as an essay on the merits
of the Corbières wine and wine of Malvasia, one of his intestines pulled
argument fragile to drink only water ... " This scholarly yet emanated from the
humble parish priest that his brother seemed to have been invited by Christian
charity that my grandfather, Charles found himself that evening in the
presbytery of Rennes-les-Bains and spent the night.
Boudet was leading a lifestyle consistent with its modest
appearance. The supper was as perfunctory as lunch was sumptuous. But there was
what my grandfather called "the mystery fish in a silver plate on its support of
ebony," certainly something to eat, but covered with silver. The priest also had
relief of a museum which he attributed the creation to the Marquis de Fleury
Urban and contained priceless pieces. The library was not only plentiful but
filled with books not found in the trade. At a turn of the conversation the
priest wanted to show my grandfather's photo lab, new art for which he was
passionate. To believe the writings of my grandfather, Boudet gave the
impression of a man rich enough to afford to live in poverty and do much good,
however, that Saunière was a figure of opulence in that he feared falling into
poverty. It was like in a novel by Balzac or Fabre.
The next day, June 7, Father handed my grandfather a signed
"Tribute respectful of the author - H. Boudet"
of his book The True Celtic Language and the Cromlech of
Rennes-les-Bains which this book is an exact reproduction. Knowing in advance
that his text was puzzled the descendant of the Counts of Rhedae, Boudet saw fit
to show him how to read, which I rnontrerai in the following pages, is indeed
quite special ...
WORK AND LIFE
While Louis Philippe was king of the French, a male child
born November 16, 1837 in Quillan (Aude). It Henri Boudet, Jean-Jacques. The
family lives in poverty. Father Emile de Cayron note the precocious intelligence
of little Henry and finance his studies. On Christmas Day 1861, Henri Boudet was
ordained a priest. In 1872 he was promoted by Bishop Billard priest at
Rennes-les-Bains where he comes to live modestly between his mother and sister.
From 1872 to 1880, Father, tireless walker, enjoys visits
to his flock without stopping to browse the territory of a parish that his feet
will get to know both his eyes. Contemplation is austere. "While appreciating
the vegetation of spring - he wrote to Father Grassaud - I keep my affection for
the winter when the countryside no longer conceals the rocks that dominate the
landscape." After supper, in long vigils, it logs the results of his
In 1880, Boudet holding his book finished publish it to the
author's expense and funds of unknown origin. Whatever happens, with 500 units,
the case could not be profitable. The printer is Pomies Francois, 50 rue de la
Maine to Carcassonne takes to his tenure. The tests are not satisfactory to the
author corrections numerous enough to be called for complete overhaul. It lasts
six years. The book finally released in 1886 and 500 copies, as expected.
Meanwhile, Francis has disappeared and Pomies Boudet deferred to Mr. Victor
Bonnafous, bookseller rue de la Mairie in Carcassonne, which makes complete
printing and ensures the sale.
The distribution of 500 copies is as follows:
Copies sold in the space of 28 years, from 1886 to 1914 98
Tribute to the author free to libraries, embassies, good
Offering free to visitors or might be interested curists
remainder was destroyed in 1914
Is an issue that has cost a total of 5382 gold francs to
the priest of Rennes-les-Bains for 98 books sold!
Copies of public libraries have all but disappeared from
circulation. As for the National Library, a malicious player was stolen and
replaced with a novel called The Golden Pig. Sweet irony! The Library of
Carcassonne, in view of its poor condition, no longer issued. Copies available
to individuals, for the simple reason that they were free, no longer see much.
For returns, non available or what is called "broth", appeared large enough to
cause a pulping. Some say that Bishop de Beausejour would have destroyed the
stock in 1914 at the very moment when he deprived the patient of his parish
priest. But the writings of the latter seem to prove that it is he himself who
ordered the destruction when he was removed from the parish to which he devoted
his masterpiece. There are those that ensure that there were many pulping but it
was a pamphlet entitled Lazare veni foras. Having read the prayer book rather
dull, I do not see how he deserved the harsh authority clerical 1914, especially
since it was never written by Abbé Henri Boudet and was printed in September
1915 in Toulouse.
THE TOMB AND THE BOOK
The mother and sister Boudet, who died in 1895 and 1896,
buried in the cemetery of Rennes-les-Bains where the priest they built a tomb
close to that of the priest Jean Vié, his predecessor. Eighteen years, Boudet no
longer frequenting his flock. In 1914, at the age of seventy-seven, it is
removed from his parish by Bishop de Beausejour and he retired to Axat where his
brother, Edmond Boudet, lawyer and author of the map that is at the end of the
volume was preceded in death eight years.
Indeed, the health of Father Henri Boudet worse and he died
of a bowel cancer March 30, 1915. His remains lie, according to his desire not
to Rennes-les-Bains near his mother and sister, but the cemetery Axat with those
of his brother Edmond, who died May 5, 1907 at the age of sixty-seven years.
The tombstone performed according to the instructions of
Father holds the attention of visitors by a small closed book that was carved at
the bottom of the stone. The use of a book include "open" on a tombstone is
quite common for this book "closed" rnarque a particular will. On the binding,
we read: IXOIS word whose appearance Greek dictionaries do not mention. The
graph and the points which are inserted between the letters indicate that it
must be a set of initials to be discovered. The book is closed the last message
that the two brothers left the insider passing salute their venerable remains.
Anyone would expect to discover in the True Celtic Language
the Cromlech of Rennes-les-Bains a monograph of the country would be
disappointed. If there was to it! The reactions at the publication, are diverse.
Queen Victoria of England made by his secretary to send his congratulations.
Historian Louis Fédié wrote:
"... The author is a competent man who has prepared about
it by hard study and patient research." On a mission to Rennes-les-Bains, the RP
"The Boudet holds a secret that could create the most
radical changes ..."
The obituary of the religious Week 1915 refers to the vast
erudition of the abbot. But when in 1887 Boudet present his work to obtain an
award from the Academy of Sciences of Toulouse, the general rapporteur of the
jury, Mr. Lapierre, in the meeting of June 5 said: "We don ' have been somewhat
surprised to learn that the only language that was spoken before Babel was
preserved by the modern English Tectosages. This is what Mr. Boudet shows us by
prodigious feats of etymology. "
There was no medal, and our Father be expected. However, it
is probably sensitive to the jury, confused and hesitant when he said "there was
in this volume an amount of work that deserves some respect ..."
A first reading of The True Celtic Language Abbot seems
bathed in delirium, he addresses the conditions under which Ezeliel took part in
the founding of the first temple of Jerusalem, a news item published in a
Spanish newspaper or to How the Gauls took it to mean that the stomach of the
camel is still full of water. The book, however, is a look that prevents the
rejection and cast doubt in the reader's mind. The Boudet playing with words,
encourage him to wonder, to look for coding. There is no repetition itself, but
an insistence on certain themes like thunder and lightning, the door opens the
sixth day ...
I once had the folly to quote some random puns suggested
that reading this book. My interlocutor, the gathering, it was concluded that
the key words. He now sells by subscription, by its dedication pay more
autograph. Even on the frontispiece featuring a "G adorned with plumes of Pan,"
It is difficult to accept that the work of Boudet may appear as a kind of inner
tube made entirely of patches. "The True Celtic Language and the Cromlech of
Rennes-les-Bains "has a charm, this is due to the constant presence of the
author in the work, either - but it's the same - a continuous and flawless
coding. There no keyword for sale or sesame to open the door of the treasure of
the Abbé Henri Boudet.
To understand the secret of Boudet, the reader should be in
the days when he lived at the turn of the century. It is not necessary to be a
historian to read the book, but to dream about the conditions under which it was
Having rejected any value to key words and emphasized this
coded language that has fully absorbed the priest's life, I'll take an example
here: the map signed Edmond Boudet which appears at the end of volume. The five
anomalies in the card will then have their justification, either in the book
itself or in the life of the author.
In the opinion of professionals in cartography, drawing by
Edmond Boudet, notary, is a very good job with the need to feel was not done. In
1886, the printmaking techniques were well developed enough to suffice to
reproduce the map of staff which would have eliminated what did not show, where
we would have added that the 'they wanted, the location of such Celtic
monoliths. By comparing the work of Edmond Boudet with the board staff realizes
that some errors that can not be drawn intentionally. The route around the
southern Serbaïrou near the bridge which spans the confluence of the Blanque and
salsa, is notoriously inaccurate. A reader who dares the trick will conclude
that he is hiding something and run to the scene wrong. I know the language of
this book to say that the author is more anxious to reveal a secret to hide: the
errors were in fact intended to draw the reader to places that absolutely wants
him around .
The second card fault Boudet is the lack of scale. If you
want to know tailed actual size is 1 cm on the map Boudet, we must refer to a
map and staggered to a rule of three. A cartographer who published a map on a
scale composed of his own, but he fails to appear, making the card unusable in
many ways. The puzzle has a solution, it is still necessary to have read the
book and come to translate the real meaning. We learn on page 230 that the
measure of length that was used by the Celts was ell *. This unit would length
1404, is 2.60 m. Edmond Boudet and the map is equivalent to a map of Staff when
the ell was substituted for the meter. The game becomes the priest's strange
having exhumed from who knows where the ell which he would have us believe that
it was "exactly the width measured" path of Gaul, he reincorporated in a map of
In his "Remarks" Boudet said that "a correct interpretation
will be found" many interesting things about the sharp rocks that crown our
mountains. "Yes, but why is it that the altitudes of these rocks are not
entirely correct? Why error when you have to copy a map of Staff? Because we
will play on figures as on words. Here is the statement delivered by fantastic
highs order total of arithmetic:
Serbairou 514-5 1 4 = 10
Fortin Blanchefort 544-5 +4 +4 = 13
Bazei 564-5 6 +4 = 15
Entrance to Rennes 268-2 6 8 = 16
Cardou 796-7 9 6 22
* The ell is a measurement varies according to the Celtic
tribes, and there is no evidence that the ell of Giving is really in 2.60.
Several phenomena are associated in the mind of the reader.
Thus, he becomes obsessed with repetition several times of "thunder and
lightning." And stopping on pages 119 and 124 there is an invitation to bring
these events totals mentioned above. He noted that the procession ascending the
peaks thus calculated is used to draw lightning, or rather fragments of a flash.
The number 22 is then placed on the highest peak of Rennes, the Cardou which is
named after the goddess of hinges: Card. He thinks then on page 114 of the book
and with 22 plates or coats of Egyptian Tarot. The result is encouraging: the
height 796 (7 6 9) gives 22, which is the ultimate mystery of the Tarot, the
Fool or the Fool or the bishop whose miter hat is the "section with honor on
mantels "(p. 256). This arcane, do not forget, does in fact no number and the
corresponding vertex can be seen from the sky, the perfect base from lightning,
or in the valley, the origin of lightning. The Magician, the beginning of the
Tarot, is located in the "Cape Man," "This is the head." Boudet was discovered
when she served as a target at the peak of a shepherd and, depending on page
234, we have "been forced, in December 1884 to remove the beautiful sculpture of
the place that 'she held. " This stone, transported to Alet, was cut in half,
the back engraved with a square Rotas was kept by Mr. Cailhol and the face was
reported to the presbytery of Rennes-les-Bains to embed in the wall where it can
still be seen.
A fourth anomaly is the legend at the bottom of the map to
... Menhirs standing
- - Menhirs layers
+ + + Greek Cross
The small figures with last year are encouraged to read the
caption acrostic: MMDC is the Roman version of 2600 in Arabic numerals.
Curiously, the card measures 26 cm! One can imagine so many time values as
mentioned in the book must match length measurements on the map. We see that
every inch equals 100 years and 26 cm is therefore 2600, or MMDC in Roman
numerals. We also note that 2600 is a multiple of the ell, assess how Celtic and
1886, date of publication of the book, multiplied by an ell (2.60 m) 4 km gives
The fifth and final anomaly is made of the contrast
established between the severity of any conventional map and whimsical
characters of the title shifted to the left: RENNES CELTIQVE. Continuing the
numerical interpretation, it seems that the 14 letters correspond to a signal on
pages 23 and 68 to go from black to white: 14 nights range from new moon to full
moon and 14 days of the full moon to new moon with the idea that side Ie 6 days
opens every door (p. 283). While the 14 stations of the cross symbolic of
Rennes-le-Chateau that have a lot in the news are definitely post-card of this
book, but we must remember the "VAL CRUX" Valley of the Cross, name were given
at Rennes-les-Bains in 1709, the time when the priest was pastor Delmas and
wrote his memoirs.
The spa also coat of arms at the time the shield of "mouths
to cross and circle of gold." Topographic sponsor is the place called "Cross the
Circle" and continues to appear as such on the register of the municipality.
ZODIAC OF RENNES
"Twelve Palace were locked in a single enclosure", with the
allusion (with reference to Pliny) that these monuments were dedicated to the
Sun, this is the designation of the Zodiac made on page 84. Page 246
determines the center of the zodiac and on page 241 gives the dimensions of the
map to plot two circles: 15 and 16 centimeters in radius. The brilliant author
does not fail to add that "the wheel was grinding corn (gold) in a perfect
Aries is designated by Abel, guardian of cattle donors
blade, that is to say the N, the symbol for all of North and found the word
twice in RENNES the map title . Page 43, the author stresses the distinction of
the string with the frame (frame blade frame of N) because the string
corresponds to the vertical lines ↑ ↓, drawn from the letters N card so that the
frame means the line opposite.
A very subtle information provided on pages 227 and 231 can
locate the sign of Aries (Abel) to the confluence of the Sals and Rialsès,
exactly Roc Negro, Negro I'Ariès of Aries or Black, according to the inscription
on a tombstone!
Before going further, let us summarize the above and dispel
misunderstandings that may have slipped into the reader's mind:
1) By astronomical coding, Boudet twelve states and
deposits for each position corresponds to a palace of the Zodiac, the latter
beginning near Blanchefort at 0 º Aries on Roc-Negro.
2) By encoding map, an error determines the confluence
Blanque Sals-mine the Serbaïrou Jais.
3) By encoding the Tarot, by the flash of the Cape of Man
to be completed Cardou.
This coding is perfect. Rennes-les-Bains, with a
circumference (p. 225) from 16 to 18 km, is like a bank with twelve boxes that
open each with a particular number. This does not, moreover, that some still
hold a deposit boxes.
The sketch that accompanies my text shows the coding of
existing tombstones in the cemetery of Rennes-Le-Château before the publication
of the book Boudet and gave similar indications. The horizontal stone mentioned
twelve caches through the 14 letters of our Latin motto transcribed in Greek
letters: ET IN ARCADIA EGO. The upright stone marks the exact spot where one of
the twelve caches are. The code was: MDSEPT = 1507. The unit of measurement used
was the M, the mile, with a value of 1852 meters. The Boudet says page 84: 1500
apartments in the labyrinth with many detours, built by Mesraïm, dedicated to
the Sun. The reader is now used to the wordplay of Boudet has probably already
deduced: M. .. then: 1500 ... and 7 (figure of the sun), or Code: 1507.
Curiously, it says on the tombstone: LADY OF ARLES ... "Dame d'Arles" is
reminiscent of the name then given by Maurice Magre to designate the arenas of
the city: Who speaks arenas implies the game of Taurus, derived from the ancient
cult of Apis. Or Apis is also the bee is buzzing with hate, as stated Boudet
page 122 about the rising and setting of the SUN.
Boudet was able to give in astronomy, mythology, the Bible
and other more or less accepted, just as he treated the "Cromlech of
Rennes-les-Bains" remains conjectural. It could be misleading. But the
enlightened reader now understands that some imaging should be retained only as
an element in the construction of his work.
CANE OF HERMIT
If you draw a vertical line from the letter written U V
Roman is in the title of the map, we fall into the Celtic legend of the stone.
This line is the 0 meridian cuts the French hexagon in two equal parts. It is
exactly in line with the golden line of the gnomon in the church of Saint
Sulpice in Paris, whose patron saint's day is January 17. One who will visit
this place to think, he will find among other things, on both sides of the
meridian line, two tables Signol: Death of Jesus and the sword. "DEATH" and
"sword" are also the two words that appear abnormally in the epitaph of the
tombstone of the Marquise de Blanchefort, Rennes-Le-Château. The Boudet on page
255 is even more explicit on the issue of death, and on page 217 on the sword.
In Rennes-les-Bains, the meridian passes between Serres and
Peyrolles, neighboring tomb of Arques said the "Arcadian Shepherds", to continue
the Serbaïrou where there is a stone of about 2 m top engraved with the Latin
inscription: "Ad lapidem Currebat Olim Regina" (to the stone ran past the
Queen). This queen is the red line of the meridian, "Rose-Line" write Boudet.
Perhaps he would reason, for Roseline, abbess of "The Les Arcs" in his birthday
on January 17 ... and its legend deserves reading *.
Imagine the psychology of Boudet. We know he spent years
composing and then revise his book which he was never satisfied. The failure by
the scientific world of the Academy of Sciences of Toulouse gave him the idea of
a supplement to its 1886 publication. He thought, and resolved to give an
illustration. As the scale of the maps in the book in an unexpected place, the
illustrations of the book would seem ex libris. We find in Rennes-le-Chateau,
where the young priest Saunière was available: the books of accounts of the
Boudet confirm this reasoning. For several years Marie Dénarnaud received
considerable sums which allowed the priest Bérenger Saunière to build and live
in billionaire ... But a day came when the donations dried up: "The plan was
completed Boudet" The Saunière had nothing to him, he was unable to decipher
itself a masterpiece, and had to engage in expedients to survive!
These illustrations, we find in the church of
Rennes-Le-Château. Abbe Henri Boudet is the architect.
"The center of Rennes-les-Bains is in the place called by
the Gauls themselves, the circle." This quote from Boudet on page 246 is indeed
correct since the source of the Circle is located near the Devil's chair, so he
wanted to illustrate it very well in the church of Rennes-Le-Château by
reproducing near the entrance to a devil in his right hand forming a circle.
* In the church of Rennes-Le-Château, St. Germaine de Saint
Roseline Pibrac replaces. See the book by Hubert Larcher, blood can conquer
death. p 460.
Even better, the author of The True Celtic Language had
been deposited in a nest under the porch of the church in his parish a cross on
a stone base inscribed with the motto of Constantine: "In hoc signo vinces"
which is the exact translation "By this sign you will conquer." Again he made
a duplicate registration above variant of font supported by the devil to
Rennes-Le-Chateau, this time we can read:
P A R C E S I G N E T U L
A V I A N C R A S
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1112 1314 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22
The 20 letters of the motto was added two letters to get
the number 22 of the tarot, who form the "Flash" added the letters are 13 and
14, so 1314. This is the date of the disappearance of the Order of the Temple
with the standard 11-Beau Cean was black and white. But the devil in her eyes
fixed glass the board formed by the ground black and white. Again Boudet gives
the illustration of his book where he insists on the White and Black, from the
quotation from Blanchefort "the white rock that strikes the eye first, followed
by a layer of rocks black, extending to Roko Negro "(page 231), until the day
Both priests have signed this work as above the earth,
supported by two "Basilica" (small kings) associated with a ring, is a red seal
with gold letters "BS" initials Boudet, Sauniere .
The reader will understand that this preface would not
suffice to describe all the decoration of the church of Rennes-Le-Chateau, which
is only an illustration of the book of Boudet and the symbolic places of
Outside Similarly, a base that supports e Visigoth Lady of
Lourdes is returned and in 1891, he was placed in the mission of
Rennes-Le-Château attended Monsignor Billard and Father Henri Boudet. The
latter, taking advantage of the flood which reached Rennes-les-Bains, marked the
height and has placed a medallion on the side of his church: "FLOOD - 1891".
Providence is sometimes overwhelming, because this number
has a value of gold. If a visitor advised placing the base of the Virgin in the
right direction, he could read 1681!
A tombstone kills the Marquise de Blanchefort, last
mistress of Rennes-Le-Chateau, dated
XVII January MDCOLXXXI
and this error deliberately misleading. The Marquise died
in 1781 and has been substituted for a C 0 unaware that the Roman numerals. It
is obvious that we must jump to read the 0 or 1681 for use as a pivot, giving
When the book was published in 1886, this grave marker
there, and Boudet gives coding. He even uses the date of publication of his book
for 1886 Ells is multiplied by 2.60 m, the distance of 4900 meters as the crow
flies from the lime of the cemetery of Rennes-les-Bains to an old cross Stone
dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene at Rennes-Le-Château. In 1891, the Tour Magdala
did not exist and in its place "the cross" still dominated the valley on the
edge of the rock. For cons, the slabs of the Marquise had been erased by
Saunière on the order of Boudet. Now it was the church which illustrated the
book The True Celtic Language and the Cromlech of Rennes-les-Bains.
The Grand Master of Rennes-le-Chateau is the humble Boudet
whose superb Saunière is superb second. If one conclusion, we find the tomb of
John with life which, in Ie cemetery of Rennes-les-Bains, which is contiguous
with the rest the mother and the sister of Boudet. A skillful sculptor, enjoying
the sound Jean Life = January, has managed to showcase the number 17 which
appears on the tombstone as well. He lived, says his epitaph, sixty-four years,
as far as boxes on the game of chess, including 32 years in the white and 32
black civil orders. As the predecessor of the Boudet cure of Rennes-les-Bains,
Father Jean Life is part of a system that gives priority Bains on the Castle.
Hence it comes with the certainty that Boudet is the Master of Saunière.
The first feelings are always the truest. My grandfather
Charles was seized in 1892 by instinct that Boudet was of interest that Saunière
had not. I have personally experienced one or the other, and anecdotes on the
lives of two there were told by Miss Marie Dénarnaud, servant of the deceased
In August 1938, I went to Rennes-Le-Château in order to
recover the letters that Saunière had received from my grandfather. It was the
holiday, and I was not twenty years. "Marinette," as it was called in the
country, very kindly offered me the hospitality of the Villa Bethania, I stayed
three days. We celebrated the seventieth anniversary of the old lady. During
these days my hostess spoke of a portrait of the two missing Boudet, Sauniere.
Thus Saunière seemed to me as a bon vivant, a man crude and clever, with a
culture summary unrelated to the intellectual fervor and passion to know that
animated his colleague of Rennes les-Bains.
I was unable to keep the promise I had made to Miss Marie
Dénarnaud back to see the next year. In 1939 it was war. The events that
followed only helped me return to my country and to review the Razes
Rennes-Le-Chateau in 1965. The Marquis Philippe de Cherisey with me. He's a
friend I know for a long time and is very interested in the history of Rennes.
Miss Dénarnaud, having gradually closed out the furniture she owned and sold his
domains to Dr. Noel Corbu, had been dead a dozen years. The new owner who had
transformed the villa into a hotel Bethania received us very well. He told us
the "new history of the treasure of Rennes-Le-Château" in great detail, which
left us stunned. From this meeting I keep the memory of the following dialogue:
Cherisey - Have you read the book of Boudet?
Noel Corbu - No, it has just been published ...
Cherisey - He was in 1886, your church is an illustration.
Noel Corbu - You do not believe the treasure of
Me - There is no treasure in the territory of
Noel Corbu - You disagree with the excavation?
I - I disagree with the treasure hunters who continue to
vandalize property. It is not by making holes in Roc-Negro in Blanchefort, the
Madeleine, the mines of Jais or devil they discover something. There are only
found reference points for geometrize certain places.
My partner left the area a few months later, and Mr.
Buthion, very nice man, succeeded him at Rennes-Le-Château
It is known that Boudet died Axat, but what is known is
that his side was Saunière, the assistant in his last moments. For six or seven
priests do more talking. This reconciliation before death, facing the sword of
Divine Justice, marked a turning point in the life of Saunière, and Miss
Dénarnaud, told me that the episode gave me to understand that his parish priest
in 1916 formed large projects that fate did not give him the time to run. When
Saunière died January 22, 1917, he knew the secret of Father Henri Boudet, the
latter had given him in these last moments.
Abbe Henri Boudet like his brother Edmond Boudet had no
direct heir. This leads they left the hands of the sister of the wife of Edmond.
The books in the library of the abbot and some papers have
gone to the dump Axat.
The books of account of the abbot, bound in beautiful also
thrown into the dump, have the benefit of a person to Axat that sent his son,
now aged seventy-four, and who has kept a fairly accurate recollection of the
Three boxes of manuscripts are in Quillan, and some
photographs taken by himself, especially Saunière pomponette with his dog, all
of which are in the hands of a great-niece by marriage of the Boudet.
The books of account must safeguard them and their rich
binding, but lacks the range of 1891 to 1894. Here in short the content of this
From 1885 to 1901, Boudet (unless said period) pay to
Bishop Arsène Billard considerable sums: 7,655,250 francs, the Bishop of
Carcassonne affects religious foundation of Prouille, and various works such as
the Children of Saint Vincent de Paul.
From 1887 to 1901, Boudet Miss Dénarnaud pays very large
sums: 3,679,431 francs to fund the renovation of the church of Rennes-Le-Chateau
and other work!
From 1894 to 1903, Boudet pay still Miss Dénarnaud money,
but quite small: 837,260 francs. We do not find any money to the priest Bérenger
Saunière, for there against four small payments on behalf of Alfred Saunière,
the priest's brother, or 10,000 and 15,000 francs in 1901, and twice 15,000
francs in 1903. ..
My conclusion will be the cemetery of Rennes-les Bains
where lie the mother and the sister of Father Henri Boudet. How often the
priest, in his eighteen years of solitude, has come to pray at the tomb
surmounted by a cross-arrow? How often, looking up toward the sky blue to
implore his mercy to the "lost sheep", his eyes did he stop at the "Cape of
