Availability: Ready to download

An extensive examination of the religious anomalies and lost treasure of the Mary Magdalene Church in Rennes-le-Château • Looks at the connection between the Templars, Cathars, and other enigmatic groups in the history of this church and the surrounding area • Maintains that Mary Magdalene was the high priestess who anointed Jesus into his priesthood, in accordance with anc An extensive examination of the religious anomalies and lost treasure of the Mary Magdalene Church in Rennes-le-Château • Looks at the connection between the Templars, Cathars, and other enigmatic groups in the history of this church and the surrounding area • Maintains that Mary Magdalene was the high priestess who anointed Jesus into his priesthood, in accordance with ancient religious tradition • Explores the role of the Sacred Feminine in early Christian Church history The small church of Rennes-le-Château, in a remote village in southern France, may well hold the key to the proof of Mary Magdalene’s marriage to Jesus and the bloodline they founded. In 1885 the village of Rennes-le-Château welcomed a new priest, Abbe Saunière, for its church dedicated to Saint Mary Magdalene. Abbe Saunière ordered very strange restoration work for the church, and it is thought that he discovered something during this renovation that brought him to the attention of the power brokers of that time and made him a very rich man. Possible identifications of his discovery range from the gold pillaged from Delphi in Roman times; the treasure brought out of Jerusalem by the Templars, who had a strong presence in this area; and the missing Cathar treasure, spirited out of Montségur mere days before the fall of that fortress. Yet even more curious and compelling is this church’s ambiguous portrayal of Mary Magdalene. Markale explains that the unusual depictions of Mary in the church hint at an even more archaic role performed by Mary that could shake the very foundations of the Church if it were fully understood: that of the high priestess who anoints the priest king into his spiritual duties.

    First, the content of the book is not at all what the title or what the back cover description says it is...this book should be called The life of Abbé Saunière and the mystery of Rennes-le-chateau. Also, the opinions and judgments of the authors are almost unbearable and it was a big disappointment to see that the only part that was the reason I wanted to read the book was barely 15 pages in the whole book and was the only subject he didn’t know anything about and are just a bunch of personal d First, the content of the book is not at all what the title or what the back cover description says it is...this book should be called The life of Abbé Saunière and the mystery of Rennes-le-chateau. Also, the opinions and judgments of the authors are almost unbearable and it was a big disappointment to see that the only part that was the reason I wanted to read the book was barely 15 pages in the whole book and was the only subject he didn’t know anything about and are just a bunch of personal deductions from bible phrases. This book is like a history book, geography book, fact telling book and yes the author has a lot of knowledge of historical facts but nothing to do with what the title or back book prologue tries to promote.

    Interesting but found 2 errors in just the first 50 pages. For example, if Bugarach was 40,000 feet high, it would be much taller than Everest. It certainly is not, I have seen it. Espéraza was spelled Esperanza.

    This book disappointed me. Well, to be honest, Chapter One, and several paragraphs of the remainder disappointed me. The title and the description on the back tell nothing of the scoffing, pompous travel diary that lurks between the cover.

    This writing is so bad! There might be good information in there, but I could not stand reading another word. Only got to page 14 and gave up.
