The small parchment

The hidden code, found by reading the raised letters translates as:



The Parchment itself.

Parchment one

Here is a copy of the parchment as it appeared in Gerard de Sède's

'Le Tresor Maudit.'

Doctored parchment

Here is the appended version shown by Jean Luc Chaumeil

with the over-exaggerated "confession" in red.

The parchment has meaning no matter from where or when it came.

The first obvious thing about it is the layout.

and this



Triangle with the same angles as the white triangle here

Poussin triangle

And this

Da Vinci sketch

A sketch by Leonardo Da Vinci currently in the personal collection of Queen Elizabeth II



Clearly the odd layout is deliberate and therefore important.  

Parchment one

How the circles shown below are achieved can be seen in several videos made by Henry Lincoln

Here it is explained clearly

If we include the highlighted lines 

Lincoln's solution

 We note the word SPICA in the centre of the irregular pentacle

The star SPICA is called L'EPI in French


This reminds one of a similar geometric layout found around the Rennes le Chateau mystery

The Gerard de Sède version of the Dalle de Coume Sourde

front and rear.

The original was allegedly found and copied by Engineer Ernest Cros in 1928 and according to Gerard de Sède it was engraved by Paul Vincent Fleury.

de Sède wrote:


"In 1792 the Abbé Bigou refused to take oath of allegiance to the new French Republic. In September of the same year he emigrated clandestinely to Sabadell in Spain, at the same time as Mgr de la Cropte de Chanterac, Bishop of Alet, and Abbé Cauneilles, curé of Rennes les Bains as well as other priests. He died two years later.

The Marquis de Fleury took the road into exile. It is thought to be he who, before leaving, had another stone carved which was later to be found, by chance, buried under a Holy oak, lost once more and then rediscovered in 1928 hidden in the cleft of a rock on the mountain of Coumesourde, near to Rennes-les-Bains"

Here is the drawing of the alleged stone found at Coume Sourde

Gerard de Sede

It says:


In [the] Middle [the] M (meridian) line cuts [the] smaller line.

S.A.E and S.I.S



MCCXCII = 1792

The year of the First French Republic

It was started on September 21st

This was declared New Years Day

The new calendar was created by a commission under the direction of the politician Charles-Gilbert Romme seconded by Claude Joseph Ferry and Charles-François Dupuis. They associated with their work the chemist Louis-Bernard Guyton de Morveau, the mathematician and astronomer Joseph-Louis Lagrange, the astronomer Joseph Jérôme Lefrançois de Lalande, the mathematician Gaspard Monge, the astronomer and naval geographer Alexandre Guy Pingré, and the poet, actor and playwright Fabre d'Églantine, who invented the names of the months, with the help of André Thouin, gardener at the Jardin des Plantes of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. As the rapporteur of the commission, Charles-Gilbert Romme presented the new calendar to the Jacobin-controlled National Convention on 23 September 1793, which adopted it on 24 October 1793 and also extended it proleptically to its epoch of 22 September 1792. It is because of his position as rapporteur of the commission that the creation of the republican calendar is attributed to Charles-Gilbert Romme 

21st September is the Celtic festival of Mabon

Technically the Autumn equinox.

It should be noted that the Sun's disc takes three days to cross the equator

The stone was allegedly found here

The text of the parchment

Parchment 1

The passage refers to the Gospel of Luke Chapter 6:1-4


Luke 6

King James Version (KJV)

And it came to pass on the second Sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.

And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath days?

And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;

How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?


The Constellation of Virgo at dawn on 21st September 1792.  

Dawn on the 21st September 1972 

The passage in Luke chapter 6 verses 1 to 4 refers to Jesus and the disciples walking in the Corn field

second Sabbath after the First

i.e. the Autumn (Fall) equinox

21st September 1792

Virgo is known in Hebrew as Beth Lehem - House of Bread.

Spica (α Virginis) is a sheaf of Wheat in the constellation of Virgo   

It should be noted the the previous chapter (Luke chapter 5) refers to the Lake of Gennesaret

AD GENESARET is encoded into the text of the Shepherdess parchment using the extraneous letters.

Ad Genesareth means Earth centre.


Bible Text

Factum est autem in sabbato secundo primo cum transiret per sata vellebant discipuli ejus spicas et manducabant confricantes manibus Quidam autem pharisaeorum dicebant illis quid facitis quod non licet in sabbatis Et respondens jesus ad eos dixit nec hoc legistis quod fecit David cum esurisset ipse et cum qui illo erant Quomodo intravit in domum dei et panes propositionis sumpsit et manducavit et dedit his qui cum ipso erant quos non licet manducare nisi tantum sacerdotibus.

Manuscript Text (Parchment 1)

Et factum est eum in sabbato secundo primo abire per secetes discipuli autem illiris coeperunt vellere spicas et fricantes manibus manducabant quidam autem de farisaeis dicebant et ecce quia faciunt discipuli tui sabbatis quod non licet resopondens autem inss etxit ad eos numquam hoc lecistis quod fecit David cum quando esurut ipse et qui cum eo erat intro ibit in domum dei et panes propositionis redis manducavit et dedit et qui bles cum erant uxuo quibus non licebat manducare si non solis sacerdotibus.

The text of the parchment is not correct


21st September is significant

Not forgetting Saunière

who wrote in his diary on 21st September 1891

Discovery of a tomb

 Sept 21. lettre de Granes. découverte d'un tombeau, le soir pluie.

"Letter from Granes, discovery of a tomb, the evening rain."



Jesus centre is the Sun

For another occurrence of September 21st (The Autumn Equinox) here's what Leonardo Da Vinci

thought of the date September 21st.


“I could wish that I had such power of language as should avail me to assure those who would set the worship of man above that of the sun. Those who wish to worship man make a huge error! “
Leonardo Da Vinci
