In an article i wrote many years ago now (around 2004 i think) which i posted here http://www.rhedesium.com/a-midi-pommes-bleues.html i talk about the light phenomena we know as the 'Blue Apples Effect'. It comes from the 'cipher' message encoded in the Bergere Pas De Tentation 'parchments' central to the Cherisey/Plantard take on the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau.
Johan Netchacovitch posted on his website a very interesting study carried out by 'Adela' which gives more light, if you will pardon the pun, on the subject. Part Four of that study can be found HERE but the main point of interest for us is as follows:
"Le Monde illustré" in 1861 speaks of the light of "Mid day" in regards to the chapel of the Holy Angels (the Guardian Angel is celebrated on 2/10 => 12) inaugurated on July 31 of that same year of 1861 and more precisely "Expulsion of Heliodorus from the Temple".
So we have the "horse of God" (the one who attacks Heliodorus) and "Midday". According to some sources, there existed in the Chapel of the Holy Angels, a stained glass window depicting Adam and Eve with a snake throwing or projecting blue apples. Is the midday sun on 17th January, the day of the Blue Apples, which created a nice blue light effect on at least one of frescoes by Eugène Delacroix? Or is it every day at noon? Unfortunately, that window disappeared during the war of Paris, in May 1871 during the explosion of the magazine of Luxembourg. This explains the white glass in the Parisian church. We thus obtain the second part of the message resulting from decryption of Grand Parchment?
.. BY THE CROSS AND THIS HORSE OF GOD
I ACHIEVE THIS DAEMON GUARDIAN AT NOON BLUE APPLES"
Whats interesting is Adela has already identified the nature of the imagery of the 'luminous phenomena' as being associated with religious symbolism and those of ancient Temple rites, but now transposed to the fight between God and the Devil, dark versus light etc etc.
It is a very interesting study ....
Introduction: The theme of this paper is Mary Magdalene: Partner or Prostitute. My intention is to prove the following three points: firstly, Mary Magdalene was most likely the partner of Jesus and rightful heir as First Apostle (Brock, 175); secondly, that for political reasons, the Early Christian Church negated this relationship and Mary’s significant role in the “Easter” revelation and systematically transformed her into the Prostitute (Haskins, Myth and Metaphor), and lastly, as attested by the volumes of scholarly, contemporary and popular works available today and despite what the Church has done over the centuries there appears to be in Western culture a very real and tangible need to understand and fascination for Mary Magdalene in regards to her authentic history and role in the formation of Christianity.
Here is a link to Lincoln's first programme about Rennes-le-Chateau - the Lost Treasure of Jerusalem.
On page 419 of Holy Blood, Holy Grail Lincoln et al state: 'And from Godfrey there issued a dynasty and 'royal tradition' which, by virtue of being founded on the 'rock of Sion' was equal to those presiding over France, England and Germany. If the Merovingians were descended from Jesus ... then Godfrey ....in his conquest of Jerusalem, regained his rightful heritage'. On page 279 the authors had concluded 'what can one do if one is a king without a kingdom? Perhaps find a kingdom, or create one. The most precious kingdom in the entire world was Palestine, the Holy Land, the soil trodden by Jesus himself...'
This suggestion of a Monarchy being founded on the Rock of Sion was first promulgated by Rene Grousset, respected historian of the Crusades. However, what he had in mind, when talking of the Monarchy was not one created from any descendants of Jesus - but of a military monarchy created by Baldwin of Boulogne, brother of Godfrey. It was Baldwin, Grousset said, that built a kingdom based on the Rock of Sion, where the 'Rock of Sion' was the divine Monarchy of David and Solomon - being evoked by Baldwin. This was pretty much what all the reigning dynasties of Europe promulgated - a divine Monarchy with a divine right to rule. Lincoln et al therefore manipulated the original idea of Grousset into one singular idea - that Godfrey de Bouillon, as a direct descendant of the historical Christ, was reclaiming the right to rule as king in his antecedents stead. Never mind that the historical Christ was never a King!
'Baldwin of Boulogne, the first Frankish King of liberated Jerusalem, was therefore certainly not a saint, as was his brother Godfrey of Bouillon: but from the political point of view, he had undoubtedly been the man of the hour, cut to the measure of the epic, or rather dominating it, since he alone among all these paladins fully understood how to make this epic a reality, to his own advantage. In him the unscrupulous adventurer had quite naturally and quite continuously given place to the statesman. Violence and patience, fire and caution, hypocrisy or cynicism , loyalty, brutality, or perfidy, crimes as well as virtues - but crimes committed for public safety, virtues of a chief - all these elements in a closely woven personality were controlled and dominated in him by reasons of state, ordered with an eye to reasons of state. The ancient Greeks, in the manner of empire builders, would have surnamed him Baldwin the Founder ......this Frankish state of Jerusalem, born of surprise, was to find itself, once established by him, so firmly founded by him overnight that no one after him ventured to challenge it. .... he made this borderland of Christendom what it must be if it was to remain viable - a solid military monarchy. The patriarchate, in the hands of his friend Arnulf Malecorne, became the faithful partner of this policy.... it must not be forgotten that before girding his sword, Baldwin had been a son of the Church, a former canon of Cambrai and intellectually the ordered Roman mind. He created majesty. He even created a legitimacy by divine law, and the most sacred in the Christian world ..... by linking himself with the royalty of David and Solomon.....in the eighteen years of his reign he even succeeded in laying the foundations of a monarchical tradition .... equal because founded on the rock of Sion, to that of the Capetian kings of France, the Norman kings of England, or the Germanic Roman Emperor. The whole subsequent history of the kingdom of Jerusalem remains his work.' (Grousset, The Epic of the Crusades, 1970, page 74).
Here then Grousset says that the Jerusalem Monarchy was created when Baldwin linked himself to King David and King Solomon - and to Old Testament kingship generally. David and Solomon were Kings of Israel and of Jerusalem. Because Baldwin became a King in this manner it was equal to the royal tradition of David and Solomon as kings of Sion (Jerusalem). This 'new' Kingship could be seen as equal to all the other reigning dynasties of Europe precisely because they all aspired to the concept of Old Testament kingship. Baldwin was equal because he created the Kingdom of Jerusalem, where the divine right to rule first appeared with David and Solomon. I see no evidence that Baldwin created the Kingdom because he was a descendant of Jesus. Lincoln et al surely knew this when they used the Grousset quote?
There was also another subtle difference. King David and Solomon received their right to rule direct from God. Baldwin, however, had heeded the call of the Church and its Pope to rescue Christendom and Jerusalem from the 'infidels'. Was he then able to rule in the 'royal tradition' of David and Solomon, or because of the Church and its Pope and its authority?
