Must have been a busy year in RLC, this 1891. On the 21 June 1891 the little church garden had its opening (MISSION 1891) and in September they discovered a tomb - without of course that we know out of Sauniere's writing where this happened and who discovered it.
Yes well if you used Grasset d'Orcet's
rule then MISSION 1891 could become MIS SION 1891.
PUT SION 1891
According to this new version, the foundation of the Priory of Sion was only inspired by the spirit of Godfrey de Bouillon (but also linked to the Compagnie du Saint Sacrament and to the Enfants de Saint Vincent), and the preferred belief of the membership was that it was founded on 17 January 1681 at Rennes-le-Château. There was no proof to substantiate this belief however, and the earliest date that could be produced with "proof" of the Priory's foundation was 19 September 1738 (19 September being the Feast date of St JANVIER) - through the actions of François d'Hautpoul and Jean de Nègre - the evidence coming from the archives of Monsieur de Saint-Hillier (who came from the Château du Lys), the great uncle of Philippe de Chérisey. The September 1989 issue of Vaincre was to provide the conclusive evidence to settle this issue – the archives of the Priory of Sion were discovered in Barcelona – the Priory of Sion had indeed been founded on 17 January 1681 in Rennes-le-Château, confirmed by the documents of the Enfants de Saint Vincent as found beneath a commanderie (but the Priory was not connected with the Knights Templar) - its founder was Jean-Timoleon Negri d'Ables, with the later participation of Blaise d'Hautpoul (1694 onwards), and the Abbé André-Hercule de Fleury (1743 onwards). These archives were to be reproduced onto microfilm and intended to be published in later issues of Vaincre.

The origins of the PRIORY OF SION are actually quite modest. The PRIORY stems from RAZES and is only a more or less direct successor of the Children of St VINCENT and (probably) of the Company of the Blessed Sacrament founded in 1629 by Henri de LEVIS, theoretically then dissolved in 1665, but of which some secret adepts were still in existence 50 years later.
We now know that the PRIORY OF SION dates from 17 January 1681, with, as founder, JEAN-TIMOLEON NEGRI D’ABLES, and with the participation of Blaise d’HAUTPOUL (+1694), and Abbé André-Hercule de FLEURY (+ 1743).
Our Brothers must remember that, during the French Revolution of 1789-1792, a very large number of the ORDER’s documents were entrusted to Maximilien de LORRAINE, Archbishop of COLOGNE, and then partially returned in September 1840 to Victor HUGO during his journey to COLOGNE. A certain number of documents remained in the hands of the HABSBURGS. Later the HABSBURGS established secret contacts with Abbés Bérenger SAUNIERE and Henri BOUDET (of the two RENNES) in the years 1890 to 1914, with the aim of entering into negotiations.
