Exactly 118 years ago tonight, during the night of 31 October to 1 November 1897, the parish priest of Coustaussa, the Abbé Antoine Gélis, was brutally murdered in his presbytery. The crime was not solved. The Abbé was found during the investigation to possess large sums of money which had not been taken by his assailants. The autopsy report reveals the following;
1. The death of the Abbé Gélis was due to murder.
2. The wounds, which caused it, are located on the skull and mainly on the rear part of this.
3. In the absence of macroscopic lesions on the brain matter, we have to accept that death occurred because of concussion to the brain rather than by contusion and compression of this organ or by haemorrhage.
4. The weapon used to produce these wounds seems to have been a blunt instrument, perhaps a sharp instrument which was extremely blunted and which acted as much by its mass as by its sharpness. Certain wounds were probably caused by the fire-tongs.
5. The death of the victim would not have been instantaneous; however, the wounds to the occiput, because of their extreme severity, must have led very rapidly to death.
6. There was no attempt at strangulation. There are no traces of this on the external skin of the neck or on the trachea or larynx.
7. Having examined the various organs it is shown that the Abbé Gélis had no pathological defect and he must have enjoyed good health before the murder.
The above report is certified as sincere and true.
Limoux, November 14th 1897.
It was written that: REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS the soul of Mr. ANTOINE GELIS Priest of Coustaussa of 1857 to 1897 Assassinated in this parish. Victim of malicious hatred on the night of October 31st - 1st November, 1897. This was a simple man and upright, one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
This is a true martyr, who, for Christ's name shed his blood.
There are certainly many suspicious elements to the murder of poor Antoine Gélis. On this date 118 years ago Gelis was murdered in his own home. The poor man died and no-one was ever brought to justice. Pity Forensics cannot go back and test DNA, especially on the cigarette packets left behind, etc etc.
But look at the wording used from his funeral service. He was assassinated [this can mean the murder of a prominent person, often but not always a political leader or ruler, usually for political reasons or payment. An assassination may be prompted by religious, political, or military motives; it is an act that may be done for financial gain, to avenge a grievance, from a desire to get fame of notoriety],
he was a true martyr [?? from the Greek: μάρτυς, mártys, "witness"; stem μάρτυρ-, mártyr-) is somebody who suffers persecution and/or death for advocating, renouncing, refusing to renounce, and/or refusing to advocate a belief or cause of either a religious or secular nature. Most martyrs are considered holy or are respected by their followers, becoming a symbol of exceptional leadership and heroism. Martyrs play significant roles in religions. In its original meaning, the word martyr, meaning witness, was used in the secular sphere as well as in the New Testament of the Bible. The process of bearing witness was not intended to lead to the death of the witness, although it is known from ancient writers that witnesses often died for their testimonies. The term acquired the extended meaning of a believer who is called to witness for their religious belief, and on account of this witness, endures suffering and/or death], and was a victim of malicious hatred.
All very bizarre and suspicious.
The local and provincial administration of Cosenza in Italy has launched a plan to systematically search for the treasure hoard of Alaric, King of the Visigoths, who looted the riches during his sack of Rome in the 5th century. Italian archaeologists will be utilizing the latest technological innovations in their search for the treasure, which legend says was buried alongside Alaric somewhere near the confluence of two rivers in Cosenza. Adolph Hitler was obsessed with the goal of finding the hidden loot, but the Nazis never located it.
According to the historian Jordanes, who wrote about the Goths in the sixth century, Alaric was buried along with the looted treasures in a tomb at the confluence of the Busento and Crathis rivers.
“Turning from its course the river Busentus, near the city of Cosentia, they led a band of captives into the midst of its bed to dig out a place for his grave,” writes Jordanes in his book De Origine Actibusque Getarum (‘The Origin and Deeds of the Goths’). “In the depths of this pit they buried Alaric, together with many treasures, and then turned the waters back into their channel. And that none might ever know the place, they put to death all the diggers.”
The Search for Alaric’s Treasure
During the mid-18th century, a huge project took place to unearth the tomb of Alaric, but nothing was found. Then, in the early 19th century, writer and traveller Alexandre Dumas visited Cosenza after a major earthquake had drained the Busento River. Dumas reported that numerous people began fervently digging for the Roman treasure, but again no treasure or tomb was unearthed.
In the 20th century, the accounts of the treasure attracted the attention of Adolph Hitler and Heinrich Himmler, who ordered an extensive search for the hidden loot. But they too came back empty handed. The Telegraph reports that the search has now begun again, this time with the whole-hearted support of the Cosenza authorities.
"Historical sources and clues confirm that the treasure of Alaric was buried in Cosenza," Mario Occhiuto, the mayor of Cosenza, said in a statement [via The Telegraph]. “The treasure consisted of about 10 wagons full of gold and silver, and perhaps also the sacred Jewish candelabra, the Menorah."
The town of Cosenza has commissioned a team of archaeologists to search for the treasure and is hoping that if the loot is found, it will attract hordes of tourists to the area.
HERE i report the words of a Michel Rouge, who worked at Saint Sulpice. We were discussing an assertion made by Cherisey in CIRCUIT that the Delacroix window in the Chapel of the Angels had carried a depiction of an angel holding a blue apple in front of Adam and Eve. Cherisey said this window had been removed in around 1900. Below is part of the article and Michel Rouges' comments.
Apart from the other mysterious comment [there seems to be a mis-understanding about the existence of lack of it [a design] at the centre of various windows ...] as some have noted HERE, there was a window changed in Saint Sulpice around this time. I double checked the entries in the articles cited - and it is correct! What i find fascinating is how Cherisey even 'knew' the window had been changed! The articles themselves are buried in a tiny place in short paged Journals - which were published every day of the year over 100 years before [when Cherisey was writing CIRCUIT]! How would he have ever found them - unless this was reported in a book on Saint Sulpice. Anyway - here are the entries: firstly from "le mardi 27 juin 1899 dans le journal Le Matin" [image from the BnF],
The second entry is in an edition La Croix le 29 juin 1899 [images from BnF].
As the observers noted on the above named web-site they raised the following point: "A detail must attract our attention: the thieves entered by breaking a window. Surely this is not what is lacking in Saint-Sulpice but both articles report the same decisive precision, that the villains accessed the window from scaffolding erected in front of the right tower' & further 'It may be useful to remind the reader that immediately after the right tower, the south tower .... of the church plan of Saint-Sulpice, is the chapel of the Holy Angels. It is therefore quite possible that the window through which the thieves accessed the church opened up into the chapel and there they found the paintings of Delacroix.."
I mentioned HERE about a Joseph Courtejaire & i wondered what his role in the enigma of Rennes was, and why he had suddenly determined that there was a Gallic Temple underground in the vicinity of the so called Peyro-Dreito stone. Hercule Navarrau-Arsa threw some light on the matter writing that: "René Chesa, sur un courrier du 21 avril 1967, et l'abbé René-Maurice Mazières, racontaient que le fameux "Rapport d'ERNEST CROS" avait été rédigé par Mr Joseph Courtejaire, un habitant de la Haute Vallée qui était professeur à la Facultés des Sciences de Toulouse et membre de la SESA de Carcassonne. Mr Joseph Courtejaire est décédé célibataire, en décembre 1965...".
Translated this suggested that "René Chesa, in a letter of 21 April 1967, and the Abbe René-Maurice Mazières, said that the famous "Ernest Cros Report" was written by Mr. Joseph Courtejaire, a resident of the Upper Valley - who was professor of Science Faculty of Toulouse and member of the SESA of carcassonne. Mr. Joseph Courtejaire died unmarried, in December 1965..."
Raymond Sagarzazu, [also Ramuntxo] kindly alerted me to a new book that is out .... "I note that a new book has just come out on the mysteries of the two Rennes. I advise you to quickly read this book". Raymond is one of those early researchers [i.e. long before us] who was researching the mystery of the two Rennes. I am aware of his views on Rennes, and have reported them many times on this site. The new book is called: Code AA - The Enigma of Rennes-le-Chateau [http://www.codeaa-rennes-le-chateau.fr/].
I note in an interview the following:
"Is there not some advertising hype to present the book as a warning?
Ed. - Unfortunately, NO. Herman Treil intends to respond to English-speaking authors who, in recent decades, take turns to announce THE "next discovery" of a ... 'tomb and mummified body of Jesus "in the vicinity of Rennes-les Bains, small neighboring spa Rennes-le-Château
Lec. - So you take seriously the books of these authors?
Ed. - YES, on the discovery of a tomb and bones that do exist ... Herman Treil. NO, about their identification with those of Christ. From the documents presented in the book and unpublished records, for lack of space, the author establishes the presence of paleo-Christian catacombs in the vicinity of Rennes-les-Bains. Christians there were buried with the deceased non-Christians, followers of ancient beliefs. This particular situation is likely to have a disorder. This amazing cohabitation was common in the Roman catacombs. Here the context is differen t because the burial was extended until the Middle Ages, the place has been known and protected by churchmen.
Lec. - So why this place has he not been "revealed" in his time?
Ed. - First, respect for the holy relics, precious objects, the bodies were placed in it over the ages. Deposits that form on the one hand "a treasure" and the other an unimaginable heritage. Finally, due to the difficult access due to this "wonderful structure" mentioned in pages 820, 878 ... and others.
But what does this discovery would change the reality?
Ed. - It's a matter of perspective and point of view between faith and unbelief. If, in an environment already brought to the ambient syncretism "values", it was "a tomb and bones attributed to Christ" ... Christ is not risen ... all the Christian building (Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, Protestant) would collapse with the spiritual world impact everyone imagines victory of some, disaster for others ...
Lec. - Yet we have already announced the discovery of a "tomb of Jesus" in the Holy Land and it changed nothing.
Ed. - Yes, but the forger Oded Golan was fairly quickly unmasked. Jewish archaeologists searched his workshop and reveals his way of making a false entry on period ossuaries. To forger, the only goal was to make money by presenting his discovery of the "tomb of Christ" or objects of the Temple!
In the "case of Rennes," it's different. It is not the act of a single person. We are witnessing a wave of Anglo-Saxon authors works carried by the media ... all culminating in the literary phenomenon of the Da Vinci Code, translated into over 40 languages, drawing huge global success competing with the Bible, despite gross errors in this book that takes any excuse for its presentation in the form of fiction.
Lec. - In the event of this discovery, what is the point of the book?
Ed. - If necessary, particularly sacred, was to be found it can soon by the publication of AA Code that throughout the ages, the church people - and state - have been located and protected site. After the false claims would finally restored the truth about the identity of the deceased presented as Jesus (pages 827-878).'
Here is the link to see the Table of Contents - it does look very interesting:
I have a fascinating book by Franck MARIE - its called 'Rennes-le-Chateau - Critical Studies'. It was published in around 1977. Marie has some amazing comments - from those early researchers on the ground before - perhaps the genre became contaminated with the Holy Blood, Holy Grail fiasco, as it were.
One such comment involved the 'traffic in masses' allegation. Marie wrote:
"Sauniere was booked for trafficking in masses, that is certain! Descadeillas has brought various evidences in his book Mythologie du Tresor de Rennes, such as those provided by the many mandates and Receipts received at the Post Office in Couiza. Also Mrs Hughes a native of Couiza [originally a housekeeper in Brazil before 1914], sent a friend a local newspaper article on the Mass intentions in favour of the Abbe Sauniere ... yet this position is opposed by Count Yves Maraval, who quoted one day a surprising statement - [this was that] his grandfather the Count Fondi de Niort, General Counsellor of Belcaire was an intimate friend of Monseigneur de Beausejour, who spent one month each year at the Chateau de Niort-sur-Sault. Monseigneur Beausejour frequently said he condemned Sauniere for mass trafficing, but he did not believe it!"
Marie also said "This book owes its existence to the work and help of a number of researchers. These include: Monsieur l'Abbe Mazieres, who agreed to share his memories and he also opened his records, Monsieur CHESA, of Carcassonne, who told us many interesting revelations, and Monseigneur BOYER".
It must have been magical in those days on the Hill with these fascinating early researchers!!!
50 TONNES D’OR ET D’ARGENT À RENNES LE CHÂTEAUHISTOIRE OU LÉGENDE ... COMMENT DISTINGUER LA RÉALITÉ ?
HERE we talk about the proliferation of the many 'heads' in the stories at Rennes-les-Bains. While doing research for Boudet's Chromleck [spelled with an 'H'!] i came across the following head, an example of another carved head idea ....
The figure here [and others] were associated with a shrine located at Drumeague Hill. Nearby is Corleck Hill where it appears that between 1832 and 1900 a Passage Tomb surrounded by a stone circle and a circular embankment 70 yards in diametre. Does this not ring a bell with Boudet's Cromleck - a circular stone circle surrounding a tomb and associated with a carving of the 'Head of the Saviour'?
Pictured above - A Stone Head [Object Number: IA:1998.72]
Carved stone head. Early Iron Age, 1st - 2nd century AD. Known since it came to scientific attention in 1937 as the Corleck head, this three-faced stone idol was found in the townland of Drumeague, Co. Cavan around the year 1855. It appears that it was one of a number of carvings found, including a bearded bust now known as the Corraghy head that was later built into a barn in the nearby townland of that name. Thomas Barron, the local historian who brought the three-faced head to the attention of the National Museum spent a lifetime researching the local traditions concerning the find and he concluded that the figures were associated with a shrine located at Drumeague Hill. Nearby is Corleck Hill where it appears that between 1832 and 1900 a Passage Tomb surrounded by a stone circle and a circular embankment 70 yards in diameter were dismantled. The site of these monuments was the centre of an important Lughnasa festival that celebrated the harvest, an ancient Celtic tradition that survives into modern times. Other Celtic stone heads have been found in the vicinity such as those from Corravilla and Cavan Town and the find place of the three-faced idol is but twelve miles distant from Loughcrew, Co. Meath. A little further north there is another group of Iron Age stone carvings that appear to be centred on the vicinity of Emhain Macha, the main political and ritual site of ancient Ulster. The likelihood is that the Corleck Head was associated with a shrine reflecting Romano-British traditions located close to where the carving was discovered. The three-faced carving is the finest of its type and there is a small hole in the base to assist its being stood securely, perhaps on a pedestal. One of the faces is heavy browed and all of them have bossed eyes, a broad nose and slit mouth. One of the mouths has a small circular hole at the centre and this feature is also found on two of the Co. Armagh carvings and on another from Woodlands, Co. Donegal. There are several examples of this feature from Yorkshire the best known occurring on two three-faced idols from Greetland, near Halifax. The feature also occurs on a stone head from Anglesey, Wales. H. 33cm; Max. W. 22.5cm. [See HERE].
Monsieur Silvain has been well known among the community of researchers into Rennes-le-Chateau. He has published many books and runs a website. Here is some of his analysis - but what i am interested in is a new name he brings to the research ....Silvain, in trying to understand the Reddis Cellis stone suggested that it was an anagram....viz:
"REDIS REGIS CELLIS ARCHIS PS PRAE-CUM"
The anagram is:
"IS REGIS REDIS CELLIS CUM ARCH PRAE PS
"IS, JESUS CHRIST, HIDDEN IN RHEDAE WITH THE ARK, BESIDE P.S"
In this case, P.S. must be read "Pierre Sacrée" (Sacred Stone), and designates the menhir of Peyrolles, still called "Pierre dressée" (Standing Stone) on the French IGN map. We still had to clarify the P and the S, with the help of the name of neighbouring villages.
The origin of the name Peyrolles (P) is reported by Patrick FERTE on page 307 of: "ARSENE LUPIN SUPERIEUR INCONNU".
For Louis Fedié, this megalith owed its name to the territory in which it lay, Peyrolles, whose etymology is:
"Peyra-olla" = "Stone-funerary urn".
The origin of the name Serres (S) could, according to Messrs HIVERT and MURAT, come from the Sanskrit "Sar", which means "star" (ser in Celtic). In our view, this could be an allusion to the Holy Grail, one of whose denominations is "The morning star".
P. FERTE (pp. 140-141) reports the opinions of several authors concerning the Peyrolles menhir:
According to historian Louis FEDIE:
"The menhir of PEYROLLES is only some 200 metres from the road, across from milepost 65 km. It is in ancient (sic) limestone, inclined S.S.O. and raised 2m50 above the ground. Its greatest width is 0.75 m, its thickness 0.60 m. It is said that a VAST EXCAVATION EXISTS UNDER THE MONUMENT, the earth resonating hollowly at the foot of the megalith (note of the late Abbé ANCE). But here we are finally across from the château d’ARQUES."
"We should mention a circumstance that struck us greatly. Around this and almost at the base of the monument, the firm terrain, which seems encrusted with pebbles, presents a singular phenomenon. It sounds hollow under horses' hooves, as if the rider were passing over a vault. Is there, near the Celtic stone, a cavern hollowed out by nature? Or is it the hand of man that has dug the ground at this point and hollowed out a cavity of some size?"
"We are justified in believing that a cavity lies under this peulvan, a natural grotto or cavern dug by the hand of man, a good place for excavations."
According to Monsieur G. SICARD (1926):
"The ground resonates under foot around the monument and it is said that a fairly wide cavity or excavation exists underground."
Here we come to the new name in Rennes research, which Silvain said, predictably enough came from abbe Maziere's [Mazieres seems to be a player that looms large behind the Rennes-le-Chateau enigma - see elsewhere on this site] and is identified as the words of a M. COURTEJAIRE. Does anyone know who this Courtejaire is?
According to Monsieur MAZIERES:
"M. COURTEJAIRE had established that there, where can be seen the raised stone of Les Pontils, near the village of ARQUES, hence north-east of RENNES-LE-CHATEAU, there is a fault. By deduction, he was persuaded that in this place there was an ancient Iberian-Gallic temple, volque, and perhaps caches..."
Why does Courtejaire suddenly come up with the idea of an ancient underground Iberian-Gallic Temple in the place by the stone of Les Pontils? A rudimentary internet search brought up one other reference to him:
"What I mean is that the temple of the corbeaux was underground, windowless and therefore easily concealable and hard to find.
Only Courtejere (see my book The treasure Map on page 82), parent [?] of Ernest Cros (polytechnician), who Beranger Sauniere [had] known and who Cros had criticized for his archaeological destruction ...., which is not surprising ... Indeed, Joseph Courtejaire (future professor at the University of Toulouse) had known in his adolescence old Ernest Cross who communicated to him certain confidences. This led him to study the ground where was planted the only menhir of the region: the menhir of Peyrolles .... . He discovered a fault near the site. No one will know what he saw because he was convinced (for having discovered?) the existence in this place of a Gallic temple of the Volques Tectosages - whose structure - Ibero Gauls?. Obviously he could not know what it was exactly. The "chance" he wanted all his life [?to investigate] never happened as he died early and his research "falls into oblivion".
Anyway we must remember that the plant biology professor whose expertise was supplied often much more information than a geological study. The growth and distribution of plant species range from either side of the "lip" of a geological fault and the trained eye of a botanist to discover privy with the most secret recesses of land".
I would like to draw your attention to a very good article written by Stephen Anderson. It can be found HERE. The abstract is as follows: Transcription errors in the long parchment show that it was not copied from a typescript version such as the Novum Testamentum Latine as was suggested by Putnam and Wood, but from a Latin manuscript in the same way as the short parchment was copied from the Codex Bezae.
In August 1965 a document known as Les descendants mérovingiens ou l’énigme du Razès Wisigoth appeared. It was written by an annoymous Madeleine Blancasall, perhaps a name in honour of Mary Magdalene and the two rivers called the Blanques and Sals which flow through the village of Rennes-les-Bains. The document was deposited in the Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris and states that it is translated from the German by Walter Celse-Nazaire, again probably named after the patron saints of the church of Rennes-les-Bains.
Below is a couple of paragraphs from the text telling a slightly different version of the 'finding of the Parchments' by Sauniere at Rennes-le-Chateau.
This text was written two years before Gerard de Sede published his book - which introduced Rennes-le-Chateau to the whole of France. In this book the outlines of the story of Sauniere as told by Plantard and Cherisey was well on its way to becoming the final version we would come love when we read Gerard de Sede. However, we know that Plantard and Cherisey did a lot of research and added their own themes as the years passed by. The question is: did they have access to relevant important information that led them in a different direction to other authors or were they really creating their own ludibrium?
The slight differences in the story are interesting to catalogue on this journey to L'or de Rennes! But what had been happening prior to 1964 in Rennes? What was the state of the story before Plantard & Cherisey added their ludibrium?
Well, in 1956 Albert Salamon’s series of articles entitled ‘The Fabulous Discovery of The Millionaire Priest of Rennes-le-Château’ were published in La Dépêche de Midi. Noël Corbu, who claimed for the first time (12 January) that, while the old Church altar was being dismantled “one of the old pillars of the altar providentially revealed a hole, from where slipped some tubes of hollow wood containing parchments written in Latin”.
Dr André Malacan obtains permission from the necessary authorities to conduct the first official archaeological excavation of the church of St Mary Magdalene in Rennes-le-Château.
From 1956 to 1964 various other TV and newspaper articles were published/aired detailing the treasure of Rennes and its mystery. For example in 1964 Noël Corbu published his Essai Historique sur Rennes-le-Château – a five paged manuscript deposited in the ‘Archives de l’Aude’ in Carcassonne. And again, in 1962, a Frances-Inter Radio Programme presented by Robert Arnaut and Robert Charroux, and interviewing Noël Corbu, referred to the gravestone of Marie de Negri d’Ables and to the existence of another “stone” bearing the inscriptions “SAE” and “SIS”, announcing: “It is sincerely hoped that an appeal will be launched on the air-waves to find two triangular stones bearing various key inscriptions. These two stones could be in Paris. One bears the following inscription: ‘P.S. Reddis cellis regis arcis praecum’ and the other: ‘Sae sus in media linea ubi M cecat linea parva P.S. Praecum.’
If one concludes that Plantard and Cherisey are definitely on the scene by at least '63-'64 [Le Dossiers Secrets were a collection of documents and genealogies, deposited anonymously in the Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris between 1964 and 1967 of which Les descendants mérovingiens ou l’énigme du Razès Wisigoth was part of. The first in the series, published in 1964, was the Généalogie des rois mérovingiens et origine de diverses familles françaises et étrangères de souche mérovingienne] then there are several important 'developments' in these early 'texts'. For example - part of the 'tresor de Rennes' in this Blancasall story is attributed to Dagobert II, and the money he had access to as King of Austrasia. The other part of the treasure is a secret pertaining to Blanchefort and its guardians. We already have the involvement of funerary stones of Marie de Negre. What we also have, back in 1965, is the role of Abbe Boudet playing a much bigger role.
In the section i quote from above Blancasall says '...leading to the famous menhir called cheval de dieu and the cross on the ?stone of crete [?stone ridge] 681 yards from the shepherdess [large chair] of the church of Rennes-les-Bains. He [Sauniere] then goes to Abbe Boudet for advice on this daemon de gardien ..'.
Here we find references to the existence of a Menhir called the Horse of God, and a mysterious cross of crete carved on a stone. The 'cheval de dieu' was part of the secret message discovered once the Sauniere parchments had been deciphered. [Later, in Cherisey's CIRCUIT novel, finally published in 1971 or thereabouts but known to have been written much earlier the 'cheval de dieu' becomes the 'Horse of God' in one of the Delacroix paintings at Saint Sulpice, and it also becomes in some strange way a reference to a car, a Citroën 2CV - French: "deux chevaux" i.e. "deux chevaux-vapeur" (lit. "two steam horses"].
had read about something like the cross of crete/stone of crete before. It was in Boudet's book La Vrai Langue Celtique ... on page 244 Boudet says that by a square rock (the De? Dice?) is the entrance to a cave and dolmen... It states on page 245 that directly above the dolmen, a rock crest bears a Greek cross carved in stone; so it seems confirmed - Henri Boudet felt that the most important cross was the one on this dolmen near Serbeirou/ road to Sougraine.
The same information pops up in a later Secret Dossier File, a much more famous file called Le Serpent Rouge. In the verse of Libra it says: "At the window of the ruined house I gazed across the trees stripped by autumn to the summit of the mountain. The cross of crete stood out under the midday sun, it was the fourteenth and the biggest of all with its 35 centimetres!"
According to Madeline Blancassal this Cross of Crete is 681 yards from the bergere [bergère - large chair] which in this case i believe is the Devil's Armchair [described as being of 'the church of Rennes-les-Bains']. With all these landmarks being in the area of Rennes-les-Bains this would explain why Sauniere visited Boudet for advice on this daemon de gardien - could it be that Boudet is actually the 'daemon guardian' - as the person able to maintain, & preserve something: Being the guardian of the tradition. That is - was Boudet the guardian of the meaning of some local mystery at Rennes-les-Bains? Daemon means the guardian spirit of a place or person - which certainly describes Boudet. Guardien means a person who has custody, or who is responsible for protecting or monitoring someone or something [in Boudet's case, the secret of a local mystery in Rennes-les-Bains] or one, who protects & preserves something - which some say Boudet did and to which he gave credence to in his famous book 'The True Celtic Language'!
Welcome to the blog of Rhedesium
My name is Sandy Hamblett, inspired and passionate researcher of the mysteries at Rennes-les-Bains.
