Tombelaine, during the reign of King Louis XIV, was once owned by Nicolas Fouquet, superintendent of Finance at the King's court. He was arrested and imprisoned and his land was confiscated. The Castle on the island was destroyed, some ruins remain.

Now Nicolas Fouquet received a letter from his brothe Louis Fouquet about a conversation about a Secret he shared with Nicolas Poussin

The letter read:

Louis Fouquet to the Superintendent (Nicolas Fouquet)
In Rome, the 17th of April 1656

I have delivered to M. Poussin the letter which you have done him the honor of writing to him; he has witnessed all the imaginable joy. You would not believe, Monsieur, either the pains he takes for your service, the affection with which he takes them, or the merit and probity he brings in all things.

He and I have planned certain things, of which I shall be able to talk to you in depth, which will give you by M. Poussin advantages (if you do not wish to despise them) that Kings would have great difficulty in drawing from him, and that after him perhaps no one in the world will ever recover in the centuries to come; and, what is more, this could be done without much expense and could even turn to profit, and these are things so hard do discover that no one, no matter who, upon this earth today could have better fortune or perhaps equal. As I returned your letter to you for a moment, I forgot to tell you that you will have his renewed patent withdrawn in honorable terms.

Shortly after Fouquet's arrest King Louis XIV acquired Poussin's Les Berger d'Arcadie and hid it in the Palace of Versailles.


and Brittany is the home of

François-René de Chateaubriand 

A French writer and staunch Royalist who used Les Bergere d'Arcadie on Poussin's Grave in Rome

Les Bergere d'Arcadie on Poussin's Grave

Poussin painted over 300 paintings and sketches and yet Chateaubriand chose

 Les Bergere d'Arcadie to place on his grave.

On it it says:


Retiens tes larmes pieuses, dans cette tombe Poussin vit,
Il avait donné la vie sans savoir lui même mourir,
Il se tait ici mais, si tu veux l'entendre parler,
il est surprenant comme il vit et il parle dans ses tableaux

Translated as

Remember your pious tears in this tomb Poussin lives

He has given life without knowing how to die himself,

It is quiet here, but, if you want to hear him speak,

He is surprising as he lives and speaks in his pantings


Poussin was born in Les Andelys in Normandy

Where there was once a Druid Temple and where Richard the Lionheart built a Castle.

It is 180 miles from

The City of RENNES

which is in Brittany

(A name not unlike the Town of Rønne on Bornholm and Rennes Island off Stavanger. Norway, where pentagonal patterns in the landscape can be found) 

 Contemporary texts say that the red-haired Celtic "Redones" or "rose people" (Rutheni/Rhodanim - Theophilius called them Rhos and Rus is where the name Russia came from.) settled both Rennes in the Midi area of the Languedoc and Rennes in Brittany.  

Interestingly, one interpretation of the King Arthur legends is that "Arthur" (literally Earth Bear) or "Ursus" was really Riothamus, a Dark Age Celt ruler of a "Thalassocracy" that spanned Brittany in France and Cornwall in England and possibly the west coast of Ireland. Many of the places near the Breton Rennes are associated with Arthur and the Grail legends, and many of the Breton kings had Judaic names and some scholars derive Riothamus' name from... Joseph of Arimathea, the supposed bearer of the Grail to Glastonbury. Is this the source of these legends?

The Abbe Boudet in his book speaks on the Redonnes thus in La Vraie Langue Celtique et le Cromleck de Rennes les Bains.

Redones of the south spent a relative time running in the foolish superstitions of paganism. The proconsul Sergius Paulus, disciple of the apostle St-Paul had come to carry Evangelism to the MIDI of Gaul and had fixed his seat at Narbonne. The Christian Missionary envoys of the famous one[?] and holy Bishop came to conquer with the truth the spirits and the hearts of Gallic of the Narbonnese, understood while penetrating in the cromlech of Redones, that the respect of which one surrounded these cut stones or liftings, was a respect that had become idolatry, and they made engraving of Greek crosses on all the points of this stone circle, with the entry of Cromleck, Crossés, Roukats, Serbairon, on the peak of Pla de la Coste and of mow Brugos and in Cugulhou of the setting one.

Then, on the edge of the Cap de ‘l’Hommé on the top of a menhir, opposite the pagan temple, converted later into Christian church destroyed later by the fire, a beautiful head of the Saviour looking at the valley, and dominating was carved, all these Celtic monuments which had lost their meaning”

Cathédrale Saint-Samson de Dol-de-Bretagne


After the French Revolution it became known as

The Temple of Reason
Please note that the link is to the French Wikipedia as the English Wikipedia does not give the correct summary.
The French Wikipedia says: 
The Temple of Reason, created under the French Revolution in 1793 , the temple is a new religion inspired dogmas of Freemasonry
 and to replace the Christianity : the cult of Reason Hebert atheists (Fall 1793-Spring 1794) and the cult of the Supreme Being of the Montagnards Deists (1794 Spring-Summer 1794).
The English Wikipedia avoids this statement.
