the following was reported via an ‘exclusive announcement’ to listeners of Jean-Claude Carton on the radio station IDFM98 (Radio Enghien) June 3rd.
This is a rough translation:
"It seems a ‘secret site’ has been found directly linked to Saunière through the recent papers that have come to light including the Book of Tobit auction material. No place name has been announced on the radio and it has not been announced on the website. This is to protect the site from pillaging or destruction. A report has been submitted to Boistel, a notary in Gaillon, who recorded a deed to assert the right to the site. This file, called "Blancassalz" ensures that the site is now protected against any attack.
The authorities have been informed.
The site is said to have been first found by Abbé Berenger Saunière priest of Rennes-le-Château in 1891, following the discovery of certain documents in his church during restoration works. The contents of the original site indirectly linked to the origin of the sudden wealth of the priest Saunière. Namely (?the site) was commissioned, and paid for by an organization (or a conglomerate of organizations) in order to restore and maintain the place in a filing sent secretly from generation to generation among the noble families of the area until the Revolution .
That is to say the lords of Rennes - the Hautpoul (Seyres Félines) de Bugarach, de Voisins, de Fleury - Blanchefort, de Montesquieu, de Joyeuse & de la Rochefoucauld. These families received this mission from the beginning of the fourteenth century. The sponsors were the Templars, the key secret stakeholders in 1307.
Saunière, having found the site through documents found in his church, made sure to hide again the Treasury by ‘moving’ it. He then designed/produced new encrypted documents, known as the "Small and Large Parchments"(i.e. the documents first made available by Plantard and Chérisey), which suggested a symbolic treasure hunt so that his discovery would not be completely lost after him.
The repository, made up of relics, archives, religious material of a Christian and/or Jewish variety, is to the credit of the Knights Templar. They found these in their archaeological research in the Holy Land, including the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Palestine, Egypt and Ethiopia and then brought them to France. For the moment no physical deposit has been found, no excavation has been undertaken. Everything will be done legally. The permits will be sought in due course.
This report has been prepared to announce, prior to the discovery of the site. The following documents (listed on the site) are authentic keys having been used to locate this place and proving the existence of a secret cache or "" secret “.
This discovery suggests that the documents found by Saunière did NOT lead him to look for the Tomb of the Lords and a possible ancient crypt under the church of Mary Magdalene at Rennes-le-Château, as posited by Paul Saussez for example. On the contrary, this group are suggesting that Saunière found a crypt or repository that was linked to the Knights Templar, who stashed the documents and ‘treasure’ that they had found while at the height of their power. In other words the Knights Templar created the site, and the local families of the area were chosen to guard the site. It seems that it has nothing to do with Rennes-le-Château - only is as much as Saunière was able to gain access to family archives of the area!"
We will follow this ‘story’ with interest. BUT: If these documents betray all this information, particularly the recent documents auctioned at Drouot May 29, 2009 why were they even up for sale??? How did Saunière get access to all of these family archives? These archives are described thus; The Book of Tobit: This document came within a set of documents, archives etc of the families Hautpoul, Bugarach, Montesquieu, etc.., Archives of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, College of Zion, for disposal by a single vendor.
The documents were auctioned at Drouot May 29, 2009. In addition to this three other sales took place on 16 October 2009, December 22, 2009 and March 18, 2010. All parts of this file have been appraised before the sale by the expert firm of Honore d'Urfe, Old Paris, 62 Rue Vaneau - 75007 Paris, certified as authentic, and out of a "Hautpoul safe" (sic ). The experts
accept no responsibility vis-à-vis this case. An old handwritten commentary .... puts the seller in an equivocal position. This direct link to a seller prior to our case: it is a local scholar, a former researcher, or the child of this researcher selling documents received by inheritance, or else a group linked to the Priory of Sion also uninspired seeking information.
The evidence, from the work of Saussez, does indeed suggest that Saunière was certainly looking for something in the crypt at Rennes.
In the above scenario - questions are rife. The historical evidence for the Knights Templar finding anything in the Holy Land is? (However i am sure they would have looked. The early Templar activity did seem to base itself around areas of strong pilgrimmage. And to have a strong pilgrimmage one must have relics). How did they transport these elsewhere without it being noticed? What archives did the Templars have? We know they did - the Templar archives - Barber suggests – were kept in the Temple of Solomon until 1187. He goes on to say that it is not known what happened to these archives after the capture of Jerusalem by Saladin in 1187. He tells us that this archive disappeared completely – leaving no trace.
It seems that it has nothing to do with Rennes-le-Château - only is as much as Saunière was able to gain access to family archives of the area!"
So for these researchers Saunière is the only important player? And does this mean the site they identifed could be anywhere? Did Saunière work alone? How did no-one notice Saunière moving large archives and relics etc through the landscape? Which family member, at the time of Saunière, had 'received the mission' to restore and maintain the place?
The researcher concluded: As I have always maintained, it is unlikely that the deposit has remained in place. Assuming that Saunière had found the cache, he will have moved all its content elsewhere. There is probably nothing at this site now. If there is evidence that the cache has been emptied by Abbé Saunière, traces may remain, however, the obligation to protect the site against any attack and vandalism. The place is an archaeological site. The location of the new cache has been transcribed in the second coding inserted in the large parchment. It will not be revealed now.
He then designed/produced new encrypted documents, known as the "Small and Large Parchments"(i.e. the documents first made available by Plantard and Chérisey),
Why is it that the famous Parchments associated with the Rennes Affair were first produced by Plantard and Cherisey? Is there any evidence that they existed much earlier, even in modified forms etc? Any diagrams, photos, references to them prior to 1956? It is said by Plantard that Cherisey 'doctored' the Parchments - where did he get the originals and what did he doctor? Why?
In our research we do not believe that Saunière had the intellect to create what is encoded in these Parchments - in particular the 681 armature, if that Armature is validated and correct at some point in the future.
