Thanks PhC. I like it. But are you saying that BS was the essence of the mystery? What about Boudet, Bigou, Coma, and the assonated one - Gelis?
Boudet and Gelis served at the same church in Durban, near Perillos, and BS was said to have visited there on occasion. Having visited the church in Durban quite recently, I can attest to the fact that it is an esoteric wonderland, full of symbolism. Curiously, it has the exact 'look' and 'feel' of Boudet's church in RLB. And Boudet appeared to have had some serious cash, which he is said to have donated to Marie... So the mystery, as it were, appears to be originating from the vicinity of Perpignan. The upcoming work of researcher Ben Jacob will drive this point home, I believe.
Thus, the question I continue to ask is, was BS a player or a pawn? What do you think?
Isn't that question 18 ??
BS was a pawn, who became a player...
Mysteries linked with churches would be the normal domain of the priest. I believe BS made some discoveries in RLC, after which Gelis and/or Boudet demanded him to apply his knowledge to Perillos. Both sites (as well as so many others, like eg NDdM) are based on geological faultlines. BS was the "expert" they could consult, and they did, and he came up with the model.
I note someone else wrote the model should be turned "inside out". A NEGATIVE needs to be taken, which is not exactly "turning it inside out". Furthermore, I note the model is just one part of the evidence: the other is the Courtade document.
And I note that negatives were popular at the time, such as, for example, the TURIN SHROUD... a BURIAL shroud, quite intriguing in the light of the cult of the dead.
I think that Isaac's book will indeed clearly show the framework in which these people operated. It is that framework (La Sanch) that leads the way to Perillos, if only because the Perillos were instrumental in the foundation of La Sanch in the 15th century.
