Rennes-le-Chateau Mystery solved

Rennes-le-Chateau Mystery
has been largely solved?

Stephen Phillips gives us an update on where the Rennes-le-Chateau Mystery stands as far as his research has brought him

Stephen, in a discussion started around the Circle symbol of Jesus Christ, asks me:

Did you know that the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau has been largely solved, although the solution is not widely known yet? Have you read about Patrice Chaplin's amazing discoveries and recent books? I know Perpignan and spent some weeks a few years ago staying in the Pyrenees at the villa of a friend close to the French/Spanish border an hour's drive from Girona. That's the city where you need to go if you want to solve the mystery of Berenger Sauniere.

So, surely I asked for a complete update on Rennes-le-Chateau and it's mystery exemplified in Dan Brown's fictional work, "The Da Vinci Code." Here it is:

Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau Largely Solved

The essential mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau has been: what did the priest Sauniere discover that made him so rich? What he found is known: he found parchments containing an encrypted message left by a previous priest - Abbe Bigou. He took them to Paris to be deciphered and suddenly became wealthy. Thanks to the discoveries of Patrice Chaplin, we now know why. His new wealth came from the House of Habsburg, one of the great European royal families (now the House of Habsburg-Lorraine):

She has seen statements from Sauniere's bank in Paris that indicate an account was set up in his name that had an account number next to one that referred to an account opened by an aristocrat in the House of Habsburg (so, clearly, both were created at the same time). Sauniere was paid to renovate his church so as to encrypt the great secret that had been preserved for centuries in Catalonia by a private Spanish Kabbalist society centered in Girona. Patrice Chaplin is the ex-wife of Michael Chaplin, Charlie Chaplin's son. She ran away from home in England at the age of 15 and became a bohemian in the Paris of the mid-1960s, meeting existentialists like Jean-Paul Sartre. She ended up in Girona and fell in love with Jose Tarres, who was a Spanish nationalist resisting General Franco at the time. Little did she know then but he was also the leader of the private society that guarded the secret discovered by Sauniere (actually, it was Bigou who originally stumbled across it when he came into possession of centuries-old Kabbalistic documents and then left clues to what it was). Chaplin and others suspect that Tarres is in fact Sauniere's grandson. What he told her (and she has been given letters written by Sauniere, reproduced in her book, that prove this) is that the priest often visited Girona, secretly staying with a Frenchwoman behind the cathedral there. He modeled the "Tour Magdala" that he added to his church exactly on the tower on her property (old photos of the tower in Girona and architectural plans he drew up prove this).

The question is why was he so heavily funded by the House of Habsburg to build the tower, etc? Jose Tarres eventually told her, although Chaplin also found part of the answer from the Frenchwoman, whom she had met whilst living in Girona. Whilst building a restaurant, Tarres had discovered in the city the foundations of a Jewish Kabbalist school of the 14th century. Girona had been the centre of European Kabbalah until the Spanish expelled Jews from that area. The society Tarres headed guarded certain Kabbalistic rituals and very ancient artifacts used during these rituals. They enabled the initiate to pass through a so-called "portal" activated by the ritual and to travel into the past. Sauniere knew this time-travelling secret and even underwent the ritual himself. He was paid to encrypt clues to it in his church. Chaplin met the great Surrealist painter Salvador Dali when he lived in Perpignan, and she claims the society headed by her lover initiated him. His 1965 painting "The Railway Station at Perpignan":

depicts his passage through the portal.

Chaplin has written two fascinating books on her early life in Girona (long before she met Michael Chaplin). One is called "City of Secrets" and the more recent one describing her own initiation and passage through the portal on the summit of Mount Canigou is called "The Portal". Both are available from Amazon. Here are two YouTube videos introducing her discoveries and books:

Here is Chaplin's Facebook page:


Here is a video of Jose Tarres going public for the first time, being introduced by Patrice Chaplin in Girona where he gave a talk this year about its Kabbalistic history. Decades ago, he built a museum there which I have visited, putting on display the Kabbalistic books and paraphernalia that he unearthed (one of the ritual artifacts that his society guards even went on display there briefly, although its real purpose was not made public):

Here is a website devoted to historical mysteries, such as Rennes-le-Chateau:


where some of its researchers hang out in its forum and which contains an interesting interview with Chaplin:


Irrespective of whether one finds it hard to belief Chaplin's claims about the time-traveling portal, no one can deny that she has uncovered a totally new insight into Sauniere and the mystery surrounding him - particularly as it is based not upon speculation but upon documents and other forms of evidence that cannot be dismissed as easily as Pierre Plantard's "Priory of Sion" fantasies.

I think there are still facets of the mystery which Chaplin either has not been told about or does not wish to make public - such as the identity of the mummified female that the Rennes-le-Chateau researcher Ben Hammott discovered in a cave in the area and which he believes is the remains of Mary Magdalene:


The discovery was made into a highly controversial film called "Bloodline" - trailer and other parts at:


But the issues that are still outstanding are new ones and may yet turn out to be bogus, as Hammott is not forthcoming about the location of the cave he found containing 2000-year old coins from Jerusalem and a mummified body, although he has filmed it. Chaplin has solved the long-standing problem about the origin of Sauniere's wealth and the secret he discovered in his church, which he then rebuilt in order to encrypt it.

This seems to be my own personal website at the moment, so here goes. I have listened to all the theories on Rennes le Chateau and have come to the conclusion that all of them are bonkers, but we don't realise they are bonkers because we have no way of disputing them, that is until now. Occam's razor is a wonderful tool in order to dismiss the irrelevant, but there is another test that is much more efficient. This is the 'So what, now what' test. From this perspective it can be seen that a Holy bloodline does not get us very far in the search for truth, because even if Jesus was a real person, would his descendants be any more important than any one else. Would we want worship them too? In 'The Da Vinci Code' book and film, wasn't it strange how both ended abruptly with the discovery of Mary Magdalene's tomb. This was because the author and director came up against the 'So what, now what' problem. You notice there has never been a sequel; there can never be any sequel. You see, that's because they have come up against an intellectual brick wall. Even if we discovered Jesus' direct descendants, what we gonna do with them. They may even tell us to 'piss off', wanting a quiet life. Recently in Leicester we discovered the remains of Richard 111. We tracked his direct descendant to a man living in Canada and we invited him over, not to make him the rightful King of England, but to take his DNA and then send him on his way. Would it not be the just the same with Jesus' descendants even if they wanted to co-operate. Andrews and Schellenberger believe that Jesus is buried under Mount Cardou, but even if we discover the bones, so what, now what? Would we want to worship bones? And now we have Patrice Chaplin claiming that these strange portals exist. Well, so what, now what? What we gonna do with them. It's great if you are into the interstellar travel business, you may make a packet, but who in their right mind is going to step into one of these not knowing how to get back, do you get a return ticket and a map of the Universe in case things go wrong? There is only one theory that stands the ' so what , now what' test and that's the theory by T. Findley in his book, 'The Key to the Great Secret, Rennes le Chateau, the Holy Grail and the Spear of Human Destiny'. This book opens up a whole new way of understanding human experience.

To see what Saunièere found, go to google maps, select Couiza, France. Move the cursor west atop the hill directly above the village and stop before the village of Antugnac. North of the vinyard. Now zoom in. Oh, one last thing. Its the city of Razès. The mystical city that supposedly held the treasures of the Wisigoths during the battles of Carcassonne. That is if, Clovis did not take it away to Poitiers - and if the Wisigoths took it from Rome. And if Titus took it from Jerusalem.

After you have looked at Couiza and still on google maps, head SW to a little village called Lavadieu, only about 3 or 4 miles away from Rennes le Chateau. Just north of the village in a field on the right hand side of the road you will see a large pentacle. One of the points of the pentacle has been worn away, possibly by grazing animals but more likely by Gnostics, so that viewed from above, X literally marks the spot. This spot is the site of the Templar treasure, but no use digging here, because this treasure is not a literal physical treasure, but a spiritual treasure. Nobody else knows this pentacle is there, no French person, no archaeologist, none of the so called experts on Rennes le Chateau. So, how did I know it was there? Well, I read T. Findley's book and his theory pinpointed this exact location.

I am not at all convinced that Patrice Chaplin is being entirely honest with us. She begins to sound just like a Gnostic scribe, revealing everything to us but the secret itself. She is either being very clever or has been very foolish in the past by accepting without question the literal interpretation of events given to her by her Kabbalist friends in Girona. The eleven portals she describes which presumably we all have to pass through to reach ever higher levels of consciousness and wisdom do not literally exist in reality. But there are strangely enough a different set of eleven portals that do exist in reality and which we can all pass through, given enough time and effort. The portals to which I refer are, again strangely enough, Kabbalist portals, and these are the eleven points on the Sephiroth, the Tree of Life which Gnostics pass through in an ever ascending order in order to reach enlightenment. Now, Patrice Chaplin either knows this or she doesn't. I find it hard to believe she knows nothing of the Sephiroth, so my conclusion is that she is a Gnostic herself and is having great fun in misleading the gullible, as all Gnostics do. Patrice's portals are merely her thesis in order to graduate into the Kabbalah hierarchy as a fully fledged Gnostic.
