Rennes-le-Chateau - The Shepherdess Parchment Signature

Note the "SION" signature on the above parchment and compare the design to the sigil below on the "Centurion Stone" found near Rennes-le-Chateau close to Centurion Peak. According to La Clau (the Key) in Girona, the sigil represents a map which is illustrated below. The elements are the same, the X of the 4, the curved element which is the S, and the arrow below which is the upside down A. This is the map of the RLC area used in the Priory of Sion signature. It is authentic, making the parchment authentic, and also verifying the Centurion Stone discovered by the Tombman. The same sigil on a Swiss crest pointing upwards. The sigil as a map of the Rennes-le-Chateau area. The sigil and the cross of Hermes used as a printer`s crest. This geometric figure is used on the Dagobert parchment.

Maes Howe`s "Jerusalem Visitors" Pilgrimage

Narbonne, France. "So how does one connect Orkney to France? It is because of the Crusades: The legend is written down in the Orkneyinga saga - The History of the Earls of Orkney: In chapter 85 of the saga,[7] while spending a summer with King Igni in Norway, Earl Rognvald was convinced by Eindridi the Young, who had just returned from time as a mercenary in Constantinople, to visit the Holy Land. Other landowners also encouraged the Earl to make the pilgrimage and agreed to go with him, and preparations began for the trip. In the summer (chapter 86), the party left Orkney and sailed to France and the seaport of Narbonne. The Queen of Narbonne, Ermingerd, invited Rognvald to a feast. The two fell in love, and the Earl is encouraged to settle down in Narbonne and marry Ermingerd. Rognvald declines so that he can complete his pilgrimage but promises to return on his way back. The earl, with Bishop William and other well-born companions, including Erling Skakki, left Orkney in the late summer of 1151 in fifteen ships. The fleet sailed through the Strait of Gibraltar, after which Eindridi Ungi went straight to Jerusalem with six ships while Rognvald tarried in Narbonne. During his stay there he composed several verses—included in the saga—in honour of the lovely lady Ermingard, verses which show strong influence from courtly love poetry, possibly the first such examples in skaldic verse Having visited Jerusalem, the party made its way back north via Constantinople, where they were received by the emperor and his Varangian Guard, then sailed to Apulia where they took horses for the journey to Rome, arriving back in Orkney for Christmas 1153. This evidences the wide-ranging role of the earls of Orkney as players on the world scene of twelfth-century Europe. They were now participating in the cultural and religious activities of Christian Europe rather than threatening them from the periphery." 1153 Christmas was when the Vikings taking shelter inside of Maes Howe carved their inscriptions during a snowstorm, it must have been completely dark in Dec. It is said that they were returning from the church. They mentioned that "Jerusalem visitors broke into Maes Howe" and it was the party of an earl. A single man had taken a treasure out of there 3 days before. Is this the same group as mentioned in the Orkneyinga Saga? When they say that "Crusaders" broke into Maes Howe" are they referring to themselves?

Viking Runes inside of Maes Howe - Orkadia

These runes are included here on the Limoux Poussin page because the rune inscriptions mention that "Crusaders broke into Maes Howe", it is mentioned twice. Also they tell of an ancient treasure that was taken from the Howe by one man in three days, this was written twice as well. "Another carving states, “That will be true which I say, that treasure was carried away. Treasure was carried away three nights before they broke this mound” (Cooijmans, Figure 11). It is thought that “they” refers to the “Jerusalem men” mentioned previously. Yet another inscription identifies the culprit: “Hókon alone carried treasure from this mound” (Cooijmans, Figure 12). While it is uncertain if treasure really ever was hidden at Maeshowe, and if it was taken away, the inscriptions are certainly fascinating examples of the kind of activity that could have occurred."

Sutton Hoo Raven

Sintra, Portugal - The Alchemical Castle

Regaleira Interior Alc - Portugal. Alchemy lab on the roof of the Alchemical castle." The land that is now Quinta da Regaleira had many owners over the years. It belonged to the Barons of Regaleira, a family of wealthy merchants from Porto, when it was sold in 1892 to Carvalho Monteiro for 25,000 réis. Monteiro was eager to build a bewildering place where he could collect symbols that reflected his interests and ideologies. With the assistance of the Italian architect Luigi Manini, he recreated the 4-hectare estate. In addition to other new features, he added enigmatic buildings that allegedly held symbols related to alchemy, Masonry, the Knights Templar, and the Rosicrucians. The architecture Manini designed evoked Roman, Gothic, Renaissance, and Manueline astyles. The construction of the current estate commenced in 1904 and much of it was completed by 1910." An Alchemical Christmas tree!

The Rennes Popessa at Blanchfort Castle

Leave the lights on for me at Blanchfort Castle. The face of the Popessa is drawn in the archaic style of the Greek mosaics. Alchemy was the study of the Ptolemaic Greeks in Egypt like Kleopatra Alchemista who was a student of Maria Prophetessa.
