Here is a critique of the Shepherdess Parchment
The most important aspect of this parchment is that
it introduces the artist
Poussin to the mystery.
Firstly a couple of truths.
There is little evidence
that this was found by Saunière, however this in no way implies that it is
The inscription at the bottom was indeed formerly
placed under the altar in the church of St Marie Madeleine in Rennes le
This inscription was removed by a vandal in the 1970's
Here it is with Noel Corbu
Corbu was killed in a road accident
in 20 May 1968
Since Corbu died in 1968, and the parchment contains the same Latin phrase
as the one on the altar,
we can assume that the parchment therefore precedes
See Mary Magdalene page
The plain text passage is from this bible passage
Couple of notes here
John 12:1-11 (King James Version)
Jesus six days before the Passover came to
Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been
dead, whom he raised from the dead.
2 There they
made him a supper; and Martha served: but
Lazarus was one of them that sat at the
table with him.
3 Then took Mary
a pound of ointment of spikenard, very
costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and
wiped his feet with her hair: and the house
was filled with the odour of the ointment.
4 Then saith one
of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's
son, which should betray him,
5 Why was not
this ointment sold for three hundred pence,
and given to the poor?
6 This he said,
not that he cared for the poor; but because
he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare
what was put therein.
7 Then said
Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my
burying hath she kept this.
8 For the poor
always ye have with you; but me ye have not
9 Much people of
the Jews therefore knew that he was there:
and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but
that they might see Lazarus also, whom he
had raised from the dead.
10 But the chief
priests consulted that they might put
Lazarus also to death;
11 Because that
by reason of him many of the Jews went away,
and believed on Jesus.
All of these events are
featured in the church of St Marie Madeleine in Rennes le Chateau in the form
of the stained glass windows.
It also mentions Six days before the Passover
It mentions Lazarus raised from the dead -
source of the famous Blue Apples light phenomena.
It mentions Martha serving whilst Mary of
Bethany (The Magdalene) listens to Jesus
It mentions the anointing of the feet with
the hair of Mary of Bethany (The Magdalene)
It mentions the ointment and Judas'
objection to the cost. In the same window as above and note here that
only Jesus and Mary have halos despite other Saints being present.

This begins the day after the spring equinox
so this passage from John 12 refers to the events around
the Spring Equinox
There is a passage in the text that is
worthy of note it says:
"Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept
It can be noted that this phrase is repeated in
every Gospel Indeed it says in Matthew 26:13
“Verily I say unto you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the
whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told of
memorial of her”
So what is in the

The first reference to the survival of
Christ's severed foreskin comes in the second chapter of the
Infancy Gospel which contains the following story:
- And when the time of his circumcision was come, namely,
the eighth day, on which the law commanded the child to be
circumcised, they circumcised him in a cave.
- And the old Hebrew woman took the foreskin (others say
she took the navel-string), and preserved it in an
old oil of
- And she had a son who was a druggist, to whom she said,
"Take heed thou sell not this
alabaster box of
spikenard-ointment, although thou shouldst be
offered three hundred pence for it."
- Now this is that alabaster-box which Mary the sinner
procured, and poured forth the ointment out of it upon the head
and feet of our Lord Jesus Christ, and wiped it off with
the hairs of her head.
a Dominican Nun claimed that she wore the foreskin of Jesus as a

THE MEANING OF PARCHMENT 2
Remember that the only reason that the 17th century
painter Nicolas Poussin is involved in this
mystery is because of this parchment.
The final text after decryption can now be
read, it says:
BERGERE PAS DE TENTATION QUE POUSSIN TENIERS GARDENT LA CLEF PAX DCLXXXI PAR
LA CROIX ET CE CHEVAL DE DIEU J ACHEVE CE DAEMON DE GARDIEN A MIDI POMMES
Jean-Luc Chaumeil maintains that de Chérisey gives
the method of
De Chérisey does in fact mention that the final result is a
direct anagram of the Hautpoul tombstone with the words PS PRAECUM
De Chérisey says:
“I would like to have the reader observe that a prodigious phenomenon occurs, which no logical brain has been able to
explain: after composing text A with text B to obtain text C which,
confronted with text D, gives text E, it so happens that text E is an
anagram of text D” i.e. composed of the same letters”
“….wouldn’t it be prodigious if, at the end of all
this work, we could but reconstitute the funerary text? Prodigious and
perfectly stupid…May our reader rest assured: another text is to be
discovered and it is an anagram of the tombstone”
“Common opinion has it that Abbé Bigou, parish priest of RLC in 1781 and the
author of the epitaph, also composed this amusement. Such is not our
opinion: the anagram was composed in our time and concludes a signature
which we shall discover when analysing the decoded text",
"The final decrypted text is the anagram of the Marie
de Blanchefort tomstone plus the words PS PRAECUM"
Lets take each section at a time.
BERGERE PAS DE TENTATION QUE POUSSIN TENIERS GARDENT
Shepherdess without temptation that Poussin
Teniers guard the key
Despite some fiddling with facts and the French
language by some this clearly means we are looking for paintings by the two
17th century renaissance painters NICOLAS POUSSIN and
DAVID TENIERS which contain a
BERGERE PAS DE TENTATION QUE POUSSIN TENIERS GARDENT LA CLEF PAX DCLXXXI PAR
LA CROIX ET CE CHEVAL DE DIEU J ACHEVE CE DAEMON DE GARDIEN A MIDI POMMES
Well Les Bergere d'Arcadie is a famous
painting by Poussin and David Teniers the younger painted the Temptation of
St Anthony many times however he only painted a few where St Anthony the
Hermit is NOT being tempted.
Currently in the Louvre museum
This is a copy of the Teniers painting at

If we take the words PAX DCLXXXI people normally
translate this as PEACE 681. Why do they do this? The passage is in French
then suddenly switches to Latin then back to French and the French word for
‘peace’ is ‘PAIX’ not PAX. However using a technique called Gematria that
gives letters numerical value we find the word PAX also translates as 681,
so in effect for PAX 681 we have 681 681, an unlikely coincidence?
is deliberate, for the passage continues ‘By the Cross’ and the Anglo Saxon
word for the measurement ‘The Rood’ is also the word for ‘Cross’ or Pole.
So ‘PAX DCLXXXI PAR LA CROIX’
becomes 681 by 681 by the Rood.
If we take a square that is 681 Roods (poles) by 681
Roods (poles) and draw a circle around it so that the circumference touches
each corner then the circle will have a diameter taken to the nearest
integer of three miles or One English League with an error of less than 1%
and even this error is significant. The distance between the Tour Magdala
and Rennes les Bains church is EXACTLY 3
or 1 English League.
681 POLES x (BY) 681 POLES
RESULTS IN A THREE STATUE MILE DIAGONAL
A league is a traditional unit of distance derived from an ancient
and adopted by the Romans as the leuga; the league became a common
unit of measurement throughout Western Europe
although distances varied slightly. Most scholars say that it represents the
distance the average person can walk in an hour. In
this unit is the lieue and is different from an English League in
length. Also a Rood is an archaic word for the now more recently discarded
measurement the ‘Pole’ and as we have seen is the Anglo Saxon word for a
‘cross’, generally shortened to Rod in more recent times. Remember Henri
Boudet’s suggestion that some of the words in use in the Languedoc are of Celtic and Northern European
origin. The Celts came into a, shall we say, historical existence in the
sixth century BCE under the reign of Tarquino Prisco, the part of Gaul
between the Garonne, the Mediterranean and the Alps and the ocean was
referred to as “The Celtic” by
Aristotle, Herodotus and Hiparchus. The word Keltoi is Greek for stranger
and may have been simply the word used for anyone who wasn’t Greek or Roman.

And the Horse of God
The Cheval de Dieu (Horse of God) represents ABRAXAS
(Gematria 365), a
deity that was significant to the Knights Templar and is the passage of the
heavens from East to West on a daily basis. Abraxas is one of the horses taking
the golden chariot of Helios to disappear into the golden cup in the West i.e.

paintings in the form of

Amulets and seals bearing the figure of Abraxas was used in the seals of the
Knights Templar, but by medieval times Abraxas was relegated to the ranks of
demons. The word Abraxas was first proposed by the Alexandrian Gnostic scholar
Basilides and is created using the first letters of the Greek names for the
seven visible planets. Using Gematria the letters add up to 365, the number of
days in a solar year and the number of Aeons or divine emanations in Gnostic
cosmology. However using Gematria again Mithras also adds up to 365 and
significantly so does the Celtic Solar deity Belenus. The Abraxas seal was
common in the second century. Abraxas is invoked in
