Cherisey claims to have faked one of the Sauniere documents by
taking an ancient text from the work of Dom Cabrol. The exact edition referred to in its original form is on open access in the Humanities Reading Room 1 of the British Library in London. I looked at this edition and I looked under the following headings looking for the Bezae entry:
Manuscripts and Traditions
Monastery of Lyon
But the Codex Bezae is just NOT there. Its not there. So does this mean Cherisey was playing a game? However, Chaumeil's
assertion that the basis of the parchment came from the ‘Dictionary of the Bible’ is correct. The tomes published by Vigouroux are also on open access in the Humanities 1 Reading Room at the British Library. All I had to do was look under the name BEZAE. I have scanned in what I saw there. Why should Cherisey lie about the real place where he got the Bezae text from? Why does Chaumeil
know the correct answer? Did Chaumeil get told by Cherisey how he created the Parchments? What are the implications for Rennes studies and the reasons why Cherisey has created confusion? Is it possible that Cherisey got the Bezae document from elsewhere and its irrelevant about Cabrol or Vigouroux?
Here is illustrated the Vigouroux edition. The front plate is shown, and also the entry text for the Bezae manuscript. The
scan of the Codex Bezae section of relevance as it appears in this edition is also shown.
