SAINT MICHAEL“Vu Curé de Névian, Chez Géllis, Chez Carrière, Vu Cros et SECRET.”
Saunière wrote this in his diary on September 29th 1891 i.e. on the Feast of St Michael and All Angels
Probably a SECRET to the ANGELIC Society
. 'Viva Angelina'
next to Géllis, murdered on Samhain.
Saunière, member of the Angelic Society?
In France, the Angelic Society clung to the hill of Fourvière, which functioned as the “inspired location” where the Society had – of course – its sacred garden which – of course – was named “l’Angelique” – Angelic. This was the property of Nicolas de Langes, grandmaster of the organisation.
Can it be – once again – mere coincidence that the footprints of Saunière are present in this town and specifically present in this area? We also note that Saunière’s visit to this town coincided with him visiting the assemblies of other secret societies, such as the Martinist Order.
This order’s origins go back to Martines de Pasqually, who founded the Order of the Elus Cohens in 1761. The magical rites of this organisation incorporated certain initiation rites… as well as establishing communication with angels… which were deemed to be essential in the eyes of the initiates, as a means through which to establish contact between our world and God.
Martines de Pasqually stayed in Lyon in 1766, where he worked with Jean-Baptiste Willermoz and his adept Louis-Claude de Saint-Martin, who was the actual founder of the “Martinist Order”. We can thus note how Martinism was a “specific practice” from the rituals of those involved with angels. No doubt another coincidence therefore that Saunière is asked to participate in some of these meetings… where perhaps angels were called forth? Instead of asking how long a piece of string is, perhaps we should ask how far coincidences can stretch…
Patrick Berlier adds that “the adepts were not required to live in Lyon or the surrounding area; some lived far removed and corresponded by mail with the mother lodge and with other members.” But even though its members can live far away, it is accepted that they needed to occasionally visit the mother lodge. Does that not sound a bit like what Saunière did?
