Jean Kostka/Jules Doinel
At the end of the nineteenth century Doinel worked as an archivist for departmental archives of the Loiret . Having found the documents of the time, he was fascinated by the martyrdom of Cathars and began to study their doctrines as well as those which they had inspired, including Bogomil , the Paulicians , the Manichean and especially the Gnostics . It was so permeated much of this literature , one night in 1888, he had the vision of the "Aeon Jesus "which undertook to build a new church. Subsequently Doinel tried to use spiritualism to get in touch with spirits Cathar and Gnostic in sessions that took place in the salons of Lady Caithness ( Mariategui Maria , Duchess of Pomar Medina ), a rich Theosophist , a follower of Dr. Anna Kingsford . The spirit manifestations comforted in its mission.
Jules Doinel founded in 1890, Universal Gnostic Church, and declared the year 1890 "a year of the Restoration of the Gnosis . " At a synod held September 12, 1893, he was elected Patriarch as the mystique of Valentin II, in honor of Valentine's Day , the largest of the Gnostics. However, in 1894, he resigned his position. Under the name of Jean Kostka, Doinel published books anti-Masonic and conspiracy in which he showed the relationship between Freemasonry and Satanism (Lucifer Unmasked, 1895). Léonce Fabre Dessessart became patriarch under the name of Tau Synesius January 3, 1896 . Subsequently, in 1896, Jules Doinel's Gnostic Church reinstated as bishop of Alet and Mirepoix , given that in the meantime he had established his residence in Carcassonne , where he was appointed librarian.
Lady Caithness - Spiritism
If her first experiences spiritualists took place in Britain, where she attended meetings of Florence Cook
. But it was rather an admirer and follower of Allan Kardec and his ideas spiritualists . She was so close to Christian spirituality. His book Old Truths in a New Light of 1876, close to the thought of Kardec, tries to reconcile theosophy , Catholicism and spiritism. It earned him bitter criticism from the Catholic clergy. She joined in 1876 at the Theosophical Society founded by Madame Blavatsky and Colonel Olcott in New York last year , , . It was Lady Caithness who gave Anna Kingsford in 1883 to take the direction of the London Lodge of the Theosophical Society . In 1884, during his stay in Paris , to Lady Caithness, Madame Blavatsky approved the creation of the "Theosophical Society of East and West", the French branch of the Theosophical Society. It was even a time considered the obvious successor to Madame Blavatsky as head of global theosophy. But the death of the latter, it was finally Annie Besant who took over the leadership of the Theosophical Society . Like Anna Kingsford, theosophy of Lady Caithness was also growing footprint of esoteric Christianity influenced by Boehme and Swedenborg and away the dominant Eastern traditions in the Theosophical Society. However, it rejected the concept of original sin and Christ's divinity. It was a spiritual living in his mansion in Paris, every Wednesday from spring to fall. She received Charles Richet
, Camille Flammarion
, Annie Besant
and Jules Doinel (founder of the Gnostic Apostolic Church ) .
Charles Richet coined the word ectoplasm
Lady Caithness was a prominent member of the Church of Carmel. Maria de Marietegui, Lady Marie Caithness, the Duchess de Medina Pomar, was of Spanish birth. She was approached around 1882 by Madame H.P.Blavatsky, Colonol Olcott, and Annie Besant, to establish the French branch of the Theosophical Society. She was a disciple of Anna Kingsford who eventually did lead the French Theosophical society. Anna Kingsford wrote "Clothed with the Sun". Anna Kingsford was a fully qualified Doctor of Medicine, highly unusual for a woman of her day.
Maria de Marietegui was the wife of The Rev. John Sinclair
who, as the Earl of Caithness was the head of the Sinclair Templar family of Rosslyn Chapel fame. He wrote:
Quote:http://www.sacredconnections.co.uk/holy ... allion.htm
"I envy not the man who can climb Schiehallion without experiencing certain emotions of reverential awe, which raise the thoughts of the heart from earthly to heavenly things. I can truly say that in my climbings of the dear mountain, I invariably felt myself, as it were, in a sweet atmosphere of Bible imagery, thinking of Moses, Elijah, the Saviour, and others, when they climbed those sacred mountains in the east, and there held communion with the great Father of spirits....The poem entitled, 'The Second Sight: A Rannoch Mystery,' has got at least this one merit that it is an attempt to picture out a form of belief in the superhuman which has probably existed among the people of the district for many hundreds of years. In former times it was the males that were the seers of the Rannoch Israel; but in our day the Deborahs and the Huldahs have taken up the role of revealing the mysteries of the present, the distant, and the future."
An esoteric tradition tells of a Templar Knight called Robert of Heredom whom, after being initiated in a cave on Mount Carmel, came to Scotland.
The publication journal of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
is called Heredom
From the website of the Scottish Rite Freemasonry
Heredom is the flagship publication of the Scottish Rite Research Society, sent to members annually since 1992. It is a collection of the finest essays on contemporary and historical Freemasonry emphasizing the Scottish Rite

Copy of Camille Flammarion
's Popular Astronomy once owned by Bérenger Saunière, now in the museum at Rennes le Chateau.
Flammarion was also a Spiritist. He's buried on the Paris Meridian
It is now known that in 1900, Saunière attended at least three meetings of a Martinist lodge in Lyons. Pages of the Lodge minute book reveal his presence as an honourable guest.
Dans la registre de la Très Révérente Loge à l'Orient de Lyon "La haute Philospophie"... sur la liste le présent 'd'honneur' , L’Abbé Saunière.
To be invited to a lodge meeting as an honourable guest, Saunière must have known someone who was already a member of the Lyons lodge; a lodge that was a considerable distance from Rennes le Chateau.
You will notice that Papus is mentioned by A.E Waite in How Lucifer is Unmasked
. Papus was head of the Martinist Order during the time of Saunière.
On the purpose and aim of the Martinist Order Papus wrote:
"...the Order, as a whole, is especially a school of moral knighthood, endeavouring to develop the spirituality of its members by the study of the invisible world and its laws, by the exercise of devotion and the intellectual assistance and by the creation in each spirit of an all the more solid faith as it is based on observation and science."Papus and the Martinist Order
Spiritualism, popular in America, had taken hold in Europe in the second half of the nineteenth century and had become a key feature of Martinist ritual. We know that Papus himself held seances for contacting spirits. One can easily see how attractive such activity would have been to a questioning priest. Despite being outlawed by Rome, direct contact with the dead would have held a fascination to those whose lives were dedicated to preparation for the afterlife. from The Perillos Society.
Papus and his involvement in esoteric movements became widely known amongst those with an interest in occultism. In 1905, Papus was summoned to the court of Tsar Nicolas II to hold a “Spiritual Seance” at which the spirit of his son Alexander III was raised. The Russian Court had been witness to many seances arising from the interest of Tsar Alexander II and his wife in occultism. In fact as early as 1861, the Scottish medium DD Home, accompanied by the French writer Alexander Dumas, held seances at the Winter Palace, St Petersburg for the Tsar, his Courtiers and other Russian aristocrats.
It is during this episode that we become aware of the notorious Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Allegedly the minutes of the World Zionist meeting that took place at Basle in 1897, they caused quite a stir at the Russian Court where they were used to cast a slur on certain political factions.
Contrary to popular belief, they are not a forgery, nor a fiction; but neither are they of Zionist origin. In fact they formed the basis of a Martinist plan for Synarchic government. Papus himself wrote of such a plan as a necessary counter to what he saw as creeping anarchy. Aware of their political potential, they were used by a faction of dissident Russian exiles to discredit Russian noblemen involved in Freemasonry who were believed to be involved in a conspiracy to influence the Tsar.
This Martinist document was then seen by Sergei Nilus; who confused the Martinist symbol - a six-pointed star - with the Zionist Star of David. He immediately interpreted the document as being a Zionist plan and part of a Zionist conspiracy. The Martinists were duly attacked as belonging to this illusory Judeo-masonic plot. Anti-Semitic tendencies of the time greatly helped to fuel this confusion and added to its propaganda value that continues even until today.
