Henri Boudet

In his book La Vraie langue Celtique et le Cromleck de Rennes-les-Bains Henry Boudet uses some strange word associations. Although Boudet was clearly a clever and educated man who spoke many languages, this book makes some very odd claims that have been dismissed at face value by academia. The book has not been translated into English successfully in my view largely because doing so would lose the inner meaning of what Boudet was trying to say; such is the nature of this book. He maintains that the Celts of the region spoke in a language that was more akin to words found in the current English language, a suggestion that on the face of it is palpable nonsense.

In Boudet’s introduction from his book La Vraie Langue Celtique et le Cromleck de Rennes-les-Bains he says:

 “The Languedocian dialect spoken in our region does not appear a way of course so that one can, while following it, to preserve the hope to arrive at an important result. Nevertheless, this way, we traversed it with patience; in the firm persuasion which Divine Providence would direct our steps and would allow us to reach with the goal of our efforts. When the torch that we seek with anxiety, is the watch of our eyes, its first ray fell on the name of the tectosages, and this ray dazzled us. It was necessary any time not to be fully delivered to imagination, and in the intention to convince us, us even of the reality of this light, suitable to clarify Gallic Times, we tried to make it reflect by mirrors of the languages Hebraic, Punic, Basque and Celtic. The result appeared serious to us, and before being useful to us of the language of megalithic Tectosages to explain the significance of the monuments of Rennes-les-Bains [the] object first of our research, we applied it to the interpretation of the proper names taken in these various languages. This is why one will find, initially, in this work these tests of interpretation, because they are intended to be used as decisive proof.”

 From this it would appear that this recognized scholar of language and archaeology started out his research believing that the Neolithic people called by Strabo ‘Tectosages’ who were a Celtic tribe of his region, did not speak the Langue d’Oc but used Hebrew, Punic, Basque and Celtic and we need these languages to try to decipher the messages in the names of places in the area. It is also perhaps worth noting that he refers to ‘us’ in the text, suggesting that this was not a lone venture. If priests of the area were responsible in writing the parchments the actual meaning of some of the phrases may well come from these Hebraic, Punic, Basque or Celtic languages, or indeed from the Abbé Henry Boudet himself. He practiced medicine and regularly went to the bedside of a patient, sometimes to remote farms to provide first aid. Renowned for its healing abilities, he practiced herbal medicine and several witnesses confirmed to have been relieved by him and by his 'presence'.

It can be said with a degree confidence that Henri Boudet must have been an acquaintance of a man called Jules Doinel. Doinel was the librarian at nearby Carcassonne and as we know that Saunière, having built a library in La Tour Magdala, was a prolific reader and had to have been a close friend of Boudet so it is reasonable to assume that Boudet would have introduced Doinel to Saunière. As we have seen Doinel was deeply into esoteric thought and he also knew Péladan, a man who once openly boasted that he knew the whereabouts of the tomb of Jesus.
Jules Doinel founded the Gnostic church on September 21st 1890 about a year before Saunière wrote his enigmatic messages in his diary. Doinel had apparently discovered a Charter dated 1022 in the library of Orleans written by a forerunner of the Cathars, a Canon Stephan d’Orleans who apparently had been a schoolmaster who taught Gnostic doctrines, he was eventually burned for heresy. Another apparent spiritual manifestation had been Guihabert de Castres a Cathar bishop who had been martyred at Montségur. At another séance in September of 1889 the “Very high synod of Bishops of the Paraclete” consisting of 40 Bishops manifested themselves and gave their names and they checked against names in the National Library. These also told Doinel to form the Gnostic Church and that he was to take the fourth Gospel, the Gospel of St John, as their Holy book and Doinel proclaimed 1890 as the “Era of Gnosis Restored”. Doinel took the mystic name Valentin II in homage to Valentinus, the 5th century founder of the Valentinian school of Gnosticism (he is the saint to which Saint Valentine’s Day is dedicated).  He consecrated a number of bishops, all of whom chose a mystic name which was prefaced with the Greek letter Tau representing the Tau Cross or the Egyptian Ankh. Doinel regarded himself as a direct descendent of John the Apostle. As such he was influenced greatly by the Johannine doctrine. Perhaps most significantly for our story, Doinel also proclaimed that the head of the Gnostic Church (initially himself) would always be chosen from direct descendants of John the Beloved, the person always depicted as having a feminine appearance in many paintings notably Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper. The Gnostic Eucharist was called the Fraction du Pain or breaking of Bread. Doinel’s Gnostic church could be described as being essentially Roman Catholic in its practices and rituals but with the added dimension of mystical freemasonry. The Holy Gnostic Synod decreed:

It is estimated that Henri Boudet spent over 15 million gold francs during his life.
To put that in perspective the Eiffel Tower cost just under 8 million gold Francs to build.
Like Saunière, he was surrounded by rare and precious objects and the same as Saunière he distributed much of his wealth to those in need.
 If they lived both in luxury, neither forgot the suffering of their neighbours.

We must look into the beliefs of those players on the periphery of this mystery and see if we can get into their psyche in order to understand the world that Bérenger Saunière found himself in at the turn of the twentieth century.


Boudet died on the 30th March 1915 at Axat, the village where he was born and where he wished to end his days. He had been in poor health, suffering from stomach cancer, but his tragic death left some unanswered questions.

He was in agony for an entire night, dying in atrocious pain, affecting strongly the few people who were with him. These were his maid and the provisional parish priest (who was none another than that same previous secretary of Mgr. de Beausejour who had been appointed cure of Axat).

Late in that day, Boudet had been visited by two mysterious people. they were let in by the maid - who had never seen them before. These evening visitors had shared a bowl of soup with the priest and had then disappeared, never to be seen again.

Throughout his retirement, Boudet had received constant streams of visitors and at the time his maid didn't think anything of it. She was used to the priest's odd behaviour and besides, he was not very communicative. But the dreadfully painful death of her employer and above all, the fact that his face had become so suddenly ashen grey, had puzzled her. Scarcely any attention had been paid to it at the time and permission for burial had been granted swiftly, as the body began to putrefy very rapidly. the reek had become so strong, that it was with relief that he had been buried as quickly as possible.

His grave can still be seen in the cemetery at Axat. It is adorned with a curious sculpture representing an open book, bearing on one page the inscription

The Counting of the Omer (Sheaf) is the Jewish equivalent of
 counting of the days between the Passover (Pesach) and (Shavuot) Pentecost

In the Christian Calendar
Boudet died six days before Easter that year 1915. Easter occurred on Sunday April 4th.

Good Friday was April 2nd

Pentecost (Shavuot) was on May 23rd in 1915.


Boudet had been visited by two mysterious people. they were let in by the maid - who had never seen them before.
These evening visitors had shared a bowl of soup with the priest and had then disappeared, never to be seen again.

Remember that the plain text passage of the Shepherdess Parchment describes John 12:1 - 11.

Verse 1 says
"Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead."

Was Boudet ritually sacrificed on the Full Moon close to the Passover
6 days before Easter
A ritual Good Friday sacrifice?

A possibility because the sacrificial Lamb is also present close to Boudet's tomb.

On Good Friday Male sacrifices are performed in Occult rituals.

Since the Cathars believed that this material world was the work of Rex Mundi and only a temporary existence
 then it is possible that Boudet chose himself to die on this date.

On Pentecost he would descend as a Dove as did Esclarmonde
in the true Cathar tradition.

Suffering from Cancer did Boudet choose this day to die himself?

with the promise of a Cathar resurrection.

Remember that the Cathars regarded material existence abhorrent

Dove descending

From the Rabbula Gospels from the 6th century
Rabbula Dove descending
Boudet lived in Cathar Country
and their fascination with the Dove and the Holy spirit is well known.

It also has connections to the Grail legends
Here is a scene from Richard Wagner's Parzifal
The dove descending and the Grail. 

From Parzifal written by Bavarian Knight

Wolfram von Eschenbach

In a distant land unreachable by your steps

lies a castle, called Monsalvat,

A luminous temple stands in the middle there.

So costly, as nothing known on earth:

In it a vessel of miracle-working blessing

is guarded there as highest holiness,

is tended by the purest human beings.

Each year a dove from heaven draws near

to newly strengthen its magical power.

It is called Grail and purest blessed faith

is imparted through it to its knighthood.

Whoever has been chosen to serve the Grail

Him it will arm with super-earthly power

on him is every evil person’s deception lost

When he sees it, the night of death gives way.”

Most of the useful information about the Cathars comes from the German researcher Otto Rahn, a man once described as the real Indiana Jones, and he studied the Cathars under tutelage of his mentor Antonin Gadal, a French mystic and Cathar historian in the 1930s. Rahn had lived in the area of Ussat-les-Bains in what is now the Hotel-Restaurant des Marroniers and had leased the place for nine years. During his stay, which in the end only lasted a year, he developed a deep platonic friendship with Arthur Caussou, an old Ariegois shepherd who told Rahn the legend of Esclarmonde de Foix (literally `light of crystal' of Foix).

This is Repanse de Schoye, the bearer of the Grail in Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parsifal. According to this legend, on the evening of the fall of Montségur the young woman was given custody of the Grail that had been guarded by these Cathar ‘Parfaits’. “Montségur was in danger for the armies of Lucifer had besieged it. They wanted the Grail, to restore it to their Prince’s diadem from which it had fallen during the fall of angels”. Caussou went on “Then at the most critical moment, there came a white dove from heaven which with its beak split Tabor [Montségur] in two”. Esclarmonde was the keeper of the Grail (Repanse de Schoye[i1] ) and she allegedly threw the “sacred jewel” into the depths of the mountain.

She then climbed to the top of Montségur [Mount Tabor] then Esclarmonde transformed herself into a white dove and flew off towards the ‘Mountains of Asia’,  

where, according to Caussou, she still resides in the East in the “earthly paradise”. It is perhaps important to note here that these particular legends, and in accord with Wolfram von Eschenbach’s account, regard the Grail as a stone not a cup. 

According to records an Esclarmonde de Pereille daughter of Raymond de Pereille and Corba de Pereille received the Cathar Consolamentum on March 13th and were subsequently burnt along with some two hundred others on March 16th 1244.
