I am going to answer some of your questions here:
Yes, I know that my English is far from perfect in this ad for my book “The Rise”. However, it has been corrected in the final version, and therefore, in the paper edition of the book.
Concerning the extracts presented in this web page:
These extracts are located at the beginning of the book. I chose these because I wanted to keep the main parts of the book unspoiled for the readers (the ones who intend to buy the paper edition of the book).
This book is divided into three parts:
- The first part of “The Rise” speaks of Rennes-le-Château’s local history, lays the plot foundations, and puts Bérenger Saunière into the real context of his time. What I think will most entertain the reader, is the fact that even this supposedly “basic”, “rehash” part of the book contains elements about the Rennes-le-Château mystery that were never revealed publicly before. This means that the very “minimum”, basic elements necessary to comprehend this case were either not fully known, or were never written in any book other than this one. The extracts presented here stem from this area.
- The second part of “The Rise” consists of a very technical and interesting report about the creation of the real Priory of Sion (i.e. the order of the Penitents), about the secret religious and political networks dwelling in Europe, and about “the great secret of the Catholic Church”. No, this secret has nothing to do with the “tomb of Christ”, but rather with the Catholic Church’s secret history, i.e. the history of a church that has been devoured from within by a cult, a sect who replaced Christianity with Babylonian rites. I consider this particular part of the book as the most interesting one, because its style and substance are very scientific, and all people can relate to it, even people who are not interested in the Rennes-le-Château mystery at all.
- The third part of the “The Rise” is truly extraordinary for those who are interested in Bérenger Saunière. It is bound to trigger uproar, since it features documents that have never been shown publicly, documents establishing proof of the presence of a Cult of the Dead in Rennes-le-Château and within the Hautpoul family. This part of the book describes what the real life of Bérenger Saunière was like, and provides extracts from letters and archives that explain exactly how Bérenger earned his money.
