Hi Nic,not having read "The Priory of Sion Dossiers" ( I can't understand why a secret society would want to reveal any of its correspondence, least of all by selling them ), I was not aware that they contained mention of the Children of St Vincent.
Surely their inspiration comes from LSR though?
Perhaps. But this term is used elsewhere in Priory documents. For example - there is the strange statement by Beaucean 'if the parishes of Peyrolles and Serres are the twin children of Saint Vincent, then the parish of Rennes les Bains guards the heart of the Roseline’
. This is taken from 'In the Country of the White Queen', if i remember correctly off the top of my head.
It seems important because of a Meridian. LSR is rife with it, or actually i should say, the Priory documents are. I suppose one assumes meridians are also related to LSR. Pierre Plantard indeed referred to a Meridian which supposedly runs through Peyrolles and Serres. He calls it 'Le Méridian', even though he most certainly knew that the Paris Meridian runs to the east of Pech Cardou. To me, esoterically, this all seems to refer to something important associated with the 'children of Saint Vincent' (ie Saint Germain des Pres) which is related to something perhaps concealed near to Rennes les Bains on or near the Rose Line,. This seems confirmed when Plantard and Chérisey, under various pseudonyms relate that 'this Meridian owes its prestige to Saint Germaine des Pres, and what the Priory of Sion calls the Church Meridian. This Meridian was never officially used and in 1681 it just remained the concern of a ‘hermetic Society’ that is, the Society of Sulpice, created by Olier'
. I can't understand why a secret society would want to reveal any of its correspondence, least of all by selling them
I think perhaps the information was given freely, but the Bloodline team decided to do the book?
As for me, whether you think the Priory exists or not, those that had some association with Plantard et al do give information freely. That is my experience anyway.
I will start the ball rolling to Nicolas Haywood, and a question:
In the Priory documents is the following statement by Du Plantier. He says this: ‘Those who contemplate the strange painting of Valasquez’ ‘Crucifixion’ find an object for meditation’
What does he mean? I'm sure its not there for no reason ....
The painting is below i believe, and wonder if it is the titulur crucis thats important? What are your thoughts?
