For a comprehensive and detailed treatise on the
Landscape Geometry around Rennes le Chateau one should read
THE HOLY PLACE
or watch the wonderful documentaries made on the
A place where three pathways meet.
The significance of the meeting of three pathways comes
from the book
Genisis by David Wood. On page 64 we have:
The northern point of the extended Pentacle is at a place called Combe Loubiere
It is a place where three trackways meet.
From Henry Lincoln's The Holy Place
The solution to the Shepherdess code is
PAS DE TENTATION QUE POUSSIN TENIERS GARDENT LA CLEF PAX DCLXXXI PAR
LA CROIX ET CE
CHEVAL DE DIEU J ACHEVE CE DAEMON DE GARDIEN A MIDI POMMES BLEUES
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.
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.
The diameter of the circle is Three Statute Miles
or One League.
(with a 0.6% error)
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
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
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.
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

This distance of three miles is measured and is
This is 6 yards over three miles to La Tour d'Alchemie
at Rennes le Chateau
It is just over 1 yard under the
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.
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.
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."

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"
