Another interesting post by Michel Vallet is the following:
"During the years 1965 and 1966, Pierre Plantard and Philippe de Cherisey produced half a dozen printed publications, relating to Rennes-le-Château and its mysteries, real or supposed. They were all deposited in the National Library. Among them was a booklet entitled: The Merovingian Descendants or the Enigma of the Visigothic Razes , attributed to a certain Madeleine Blancasall. In this name of pure fiction, the three natural resources of Rennes-les-Bains will be recognized: the Blanque and the Sals, two rivers that meet in the south ... as well as the source of the Madeleine, visible from the road to Bugarach.
The publication I have just quoted claims to be an internal brochure of the Swiss Alpina Association, with its headquarters in Geneva. Of course, in hindsight, we know that it is agreed that one is not to believe the writer on this assertion.
What is this Swiss association Alpina?
In fact, this qualification as a Swiss association is superfluous: it is de facto! It is in fact a Lodge of Masonic obedience exclusively Swiss, which was founded in 1844 ..... The professor of history Jean-Jacques Hottinger of Zürich was the first Grand Master.
Perhaps more than philosophical debates, the Grande Lodge Alpina has long preferred action on the ground. The list of charitable, philanthropic, or merely humanitarian initiatives that it has aroused in the Masonic societies where its influence could be exercised is long.
Note that the Alpina has never been anticlerical. Conciliation has always been a must. Perpetuating itself, the Grand Lodge Alpina is currently based in Bern, at 40 Jupiterstrasse.
Several times questioned about this brochure of Blancasall, the Swiss Grand Lodge has always denied being at the origin, in any form whatsoever.
