In 1972, British script writer Henry Lincoln introduced the Mystery of Rennes-le-Château to the English speaking world through his documentary "The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem." It immediately created a storm of publicity and eventually led to the production of a 2nd documentary "The Priest, the Painter and the Devil" in 1974 and the "Shadow of the Templars" in 1979. This last documentary was already co-researched by Michael Baigent which later led to Henry, Michael and the late Richard Leigh writing the international bestseller Holy Blood Holy Grail.

The script and presentation of Shadow of the Templars, were done by Henry Lincoln. It was produced by Roy Davies for the BBC Chronicle series.

A poor French village priest, Bérenger Sauniere (1852-1917) finds some ancient, coded parchments in his church, visits Paris, meets with ecclesiastical authorities and occult groups, and thereafter lives the life of a very wealthy man.

The mountain top of Rennes-le-Chateau and of four other adjacent mountain tops precisely mark out a pentagram, the tips of a five-pointed star that stretches across the landscape. Moreover, an interlocking geometry of circles, alignments, and five, six and ten pointed stars extends for miles into the countryside roundabout, fixed precisely by the positioning of churches, chateaux and other landmarks.

Timewatch produced The History of a Mystery (1996) in which, by debunking a book, they tried to destroy the Saunière story, labelling it as 'pseudo-history'.

Henry Lincoln commenting on the BBC about-face towards his documentary: "What has happened? This is a confusing tale and it is not easy to draw together all the various elements, but something curious has occurred. ...
Those of you who have taken the trouble to check my findings know that I have been careful to restrict myself to "that which is demonstrable and provable". The mathematics and the geometry stand. Why do some people wish to pretend that they do not?" ~ Henry Lincoln

I recorded this on VHS in college, and I probably watched it a hundred times. Never thought I'd see it again. I love the internet!

Dan Brown took much of his stuff from Henry Lincoln and friends. Lincoln did the research and legwork Brown profited.

It's a pity it's so out of focus. The captions of the French are unreadable. Very interesting. A nice piece of historic detective work.

even if you discount plantard, de sede and de cherisey, i believe there is still an interesting mystery there. also what lincon discovered in the area around rennes le chateau can not be fake, it is there, as well as other things about the landscape.

There was another digging under soloman's temple that had been covered by rubbish for many years under the dome of the rock/ the temple mount in recent times. It was done by the zionists. Those who did this should tell the rest of us why they did this digging and what was the plunder that they have kept hidden from the rest of the world.

Hitler himself stated, "I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits. Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party."

The Templars were greatly influenced by the Original Church, The Holy Orthodox true Church. There was no Recognition of The Italian Pope as the head of all. The Patriarchs of Jerusalem, Antioch and Constantinople were the dominant Eastern Churchmen. They were monastic based.

"LOCUS ISTE TERRIBILIS EST" has been misinterpreted as "This place is terrible" but in fact the right translation is: "This place is awesome."

I think there is undoubtedly a connection between the Merovingian line and the Rosicrucians. The Merovingians supposedly being born with a rose colored cross birth mark and the Rosicrucians with their adornment of the rose cross indicate some lineage of the blood line or remembrance of. This fact alone establishes credibility to the mentioned ideas in the video
