THE ROSE LINE
of the Marquis
Reassemble the scattered stones and, working with square and compass, put
them back in order; find the line of the meridian in going from East to
West, then looking from South to the North and finally in all directions
to find the looked-for solution. Station yourself in front of the fourteen
stones making a cross. The circle is the ring and crown and the crown
forms the diadem of the QUEEN of the Castle.
There is a celestial vision for the one who recalls the four tasks of EM.
SIGNOL around the line of the meridian; the same Choir (heart) of the
sanctuary from which radiates the source of love for one another. I turn
looking at the rose of P then to that of the S. Then from the S to the P
until my mind is dizzy. The spiral in my mind becomes like a monstrous
octopus expelling its ink, the shadows absorb the light. I put my hand to
my mouth, biting my palm, maybe like OLIER in his coffin. Curses, I know
the truth, HE HAS PASSED, in doing GOOD as did HE of the flowery tomb. But
how many have pillaged the HOUSE, leaving only embalmed corpses and a
number of metal things they could not carry? What strange mystery is
concealed in the new Temple of SOLOMON, built by the children of ST.
So has Rennes-le-Chateau got anything to do with the Rose Line?
Well firstly as we can see above the line going through the Church at St
Sulpice is NOT the Paris Meridian. The Paris Meridian was put through the Paris
A French astronomer, Abbé Jean Picard, measured the length of a degree
of longitude and computed from it the size of the Earth, in 1655. In 1666,
Louis XIV of France authorized the building of a Paris observatory to
measure longitude. On Midsummer's Day 1667, members of the Academy of
Sciences traced the future building's outline on a plot outside town near
the Port Royal abbey, with Picard's meridian exactly bisecting the site
north-south. French cartographers would use it as their prime meridian for
more than 200 years.
In the early 1800s, the Paris Meridian was recalculated with greater
precision by the astronomer Francois Arago, whose name now appears on the
plaques or medallions tracing the route of the meridian though Paris.
In 1884, at the International Meridian Conference in Washington DC, the
Greenwich Meridian was adopted as the prime meridian of the world. France
abstained. The French clung to the Paris Meridian as a rival to Greenwich
until 1911 for timekeeping purposes and 1914 for navigation. To this day,
French cartographers continue to indicate the Paris Meridian on some maps.
I would remind people that this time 1655 - 1666
is precisely the time when Nicolas Poussin was at his most creative. Poussin
painted two versions of The Annunciation around this time and dedicated the
second one to the new Pope Alexander VII who at this time put an end to the

The four works of Em Signol in the church of St Sulpice.
1. Erected an obelisk of white marble (10.72 metres) which can be seen in the
northern arm of the transept .
2. Traced the meridian (in the North-South direction) with a band of copper
inlaid in the paving of the church and leading up to the obelisk
3. Established in the window of the southern arm of the transept a gnomon
equipped with a lens with an 80 foot focal length
4. Marked on the ground with a copper plaque the spot where the rays of the
sun fall on summer solstice. This plaque was removed several years ago to be
re-engraved. One can see today the marble plaque which was over the copper

Hermon has been identified with Caesarea Philippi, which happens to be the
northernmost place that Christ journeyed. Mount Hermon, in the vicinity of
Caesarea Philippi could very possibly be the place of
"The tower of Lebanon" in the Song
of Solomon (looking towards Damascus)
is supposed to be Mount Hermon. Also many rivers receive their flow from
the mountains of Lebanon, some of them include rivers mentioned in the
Bible. See Deut. 3:8-9; Josh. 11:3; 12:1.
Baal-Gad A place in ancient Israel,
was a Canaanite town in the valley of Lebanon at
the foot of Hermon,
near the source of Jordan River (Josh. 13:5; 11:17; 12:7). It was the most
northern point to which Joshua's
conquests extended. It probably derived its name from the worship of Baal.
Its exact location is uncertain, but it is generally considered to be Hasbaya in
Wadi et-Teim or a site nearby.
It should be noted that Baal and the Celtic God Belenus are one and
the same and that Belenus means "The Shining One"
