For a comprehensive and detailed treatise on the Landscape Geometry around Rennes le Chateau one should read



Henry Lincoln

or watch the wonderful documentaries made on the subject.

A place where three pathways meet.

View of Rennes le Chateau from Soularac

The significance of the meeting of three pathways comes from the book Genisis by David Wood. On page 64 we have:

Extended Pentacle

The northern point of the extended Pentacle is at a place called Combe Loubiere

It is a place where three trackways meet.

The solution to the Shepherdess code is



All in French then it suddenly shifts to Latin then back to French again: This occurs at:


Normally translated as

PEACE 681 by the cross

What does that mean? DCLXXXI probably has to be in Roman numerals but PAX doesn't.

The French for peace is PAIX not PAX, the author is drawing attention to this.

However using Gematria we find that the word PAX is also 681(coincidence right?)

Remember the tombstone where ET IN ARCADIA EGO is Latin written using the Greek alphabet so let's do it again PAX is therefore ∏ A X

∏ = 80

A  =  1

X = 600

So PAX 681 is - 681 681

A Rood is an Anglo-Saxon word for a Cross, it is also the measurement equivalent to the imperial measurement called a Pole.

So if you take a square 681 Rood by 681 Rood and draw a circle around it so that the circumference touches each corner.

PAX 681

The diameter of the circle is Three Statute Miles

or One League.

(with a 0.6% error)

Another coincidence?

If you think the answer is yes then you are too stupid to understand the rest of this page. Don't bother reading it.

But to the rest of you Rennes le Chateau Church and Rennes les Bains Church are exactly 3 miles or One League apart

A league is a traditional unit of distance derived from an ancient Celtic unit and adopted by the Romans as the leuga, the league became a common unit of measurement throughout Western Europe although distances varied slightly. Most scholars say that it represents the distance the average person can walk in an hour. In France this unit is the lieue and is different from an English League in length. A Rood is an archaic word for the now unused ‘Pole’ measurement and is in fact the Anglo Saxon word for a ‘cross’. Remembering Henri Boudet’s suggestion that some of the words use in the Languedoc are of Celtic and Northern European origin;

If the circle above forms part of a Vesica Pisces any adjoining circle will dissect the diagonal line at one and a half miles (the radius) or one Domesday League. A Domesday League is 2640 yards. 26402 is 6969600 yards. 6969600 yards divided by the number of yards in a mile (1760) is 3960 miles. The mean radius of the earth is 3959 miles.

The Vesica Pisces has been the subject of mystical speculation at several periods of history, perhaps first among the Pythagoreans, who considered it a holy figure. The mathematical ratio of its width (measured to the endpoints of the "body", not including the "tail") to its height was reportedly believed by them to be 265:153. This ratio, equal to 1.73203, was thought of as a holy number, called the measure of the fish. The geometric ratio of these dimensions is actually the square root of 3, or 1.73205... (since if you draw straight lines connecting the centres of the two circles with each other, and with the two points where the circles intersect, then you get two equilateral triangles joined along an edge, as shown in light red in the diagram). The ratio 265:153 is an approximation to the square root of 3, with the property that no better approximation can be obtained with smaller whole numbers. The number 153 appears in the Gospel of John (21:11) as the exact number of fish Jesus caused to be caught in a miraculous catch of fish, which is thought by some to be a coded reference to Pythagorean beliefs. Ichthys a symbol used by early Christians, more popularly known as the fish symbol is created by the almond shape shown in red above.

One league is the distance between Rennes le Chateau and Rennes les Bains and also the distance from La Tour Magdala to the Chateau at Arques is Two Leagues (or four Domesday Leagues).

For accurate surveying of the area one would need to observe astronomical movements referenced to

ground features and marked. This would be done from a tower with openings made at precise positions

Here is the tower part of the Rennes Castle. This tower is called

La Tour d'Alchemie

The Tower of Alchemy.

The Alchemy Tower at Rennes-le-Chateau. Complete with wedge-shaped holes at seemingly irregular intervals holes in the round tower.


Slotted openings in La Tour d'Alchemie ensure a limited view in any fixed position

Notice how it is designed to give a view upwards.

 Similar observations were likely made from the now ruined Bezu Castle

Here is the image from Google Earth of the Templar Commanderie at

Notice the orientation of the church is in line with the line of sight to Rennes le Chateau.
as can be seen the distance here
Rennes le Chateau looking east

This distance of three miles is measured and is
5,286.00 yards
This is 6 yards over three miles to La Tour d'Alchemie at Rennes le Chateau
It is just over 1 yard under the MEASURED map length of 5,278.69 yards.

One should remember the PAX 681 circle above and the 3 miles when considering the implications of this.

Here is the corresponding measuring point at La Tour d'Alchemie.

3 miles from Compagne sur Aude

It is clear that some group of people in the past had accurately measured and mapped out the landscape.
This was clearly repeated by the Templars in the placing of their Commanderies over sites of former places of worship.
With this in mind one should remember what was said at the beginning of this page in the Life of St Eligius.

 "Before all else, I denounce and contest, that you shall observe no sacrilegious pagan customs. For no cause or infirmity should you consult magicians, diviners, sorcerers or incantators, or presume to question them because any man who commits such evil will immediately lose the sacrament of baptism. Do not observe auguries or violent sneezing or pay attention to any little birds singing along the road. If you are distracted on the road or at any other work, make the sign of the cross and say your Sunday prayers with faith and devotion and nothing inimical can hurt you. No Christian should be concerned about which day he leaves home or which day he returns because God has made all days. No influence attaches to the first work of the day or the phase of the moon; nothing is ominous or ridiculous about the Calends of January. Do not make figures of vetulas, little deer or iotticos or set tables at night or exchange New Years' gifts or supply superfluous drinks. No Christian believes impurity or sits in incantation, because the work is diabolic. No Christian on the feast of Saint John or the solemnity of any other saint performs solestitia [solstice rites?] or dancing or leaping or diabolical chants. No Christian should presume to invoke the name of a demon, not Neptune or Orcus or Diana or Minerva or Geniscus or believe in these inept beings in any way. No one should observe Jove's day in idleness without holy festivities not in May or any other time, not days of larvae or mice or any day but Sunday.
No Christian should make or render any devotion to the gods of the trivium, where three roads meet, to the fanes or the rocks, or springs or groves or corners."

Saint Eligius was the spiritual advisor to the Merovingian Kings
including King Dagobert II

Finally a word from an author contemporary with Béranger Saunière

 “In the Aude, the peasants rather believe in the malignant spirit, the fairies and the underground geniuses than with the Virgin and the Angels"
