Sauniere’s Model & the Secret of Renne-le-Chateau

Description But researcher André Douzet has made some exciting new inroads, having followed Saunière's tracks on his little-known "esoteric wanderings" through the countryside and up to Lyons, and back down to nearby Arques—many of which may have had nothing to do with the mystery at hand but are nevertheless intriguing—and found interesting background from local history.

Researchers into these mysteries and sacred oddities have always suspected that Saunière left behind some clue to a specific location which held "the secret", and Douzet may well have found it: a previously unknown topographical model that Saunière commissioned in 1916, but never took delivery of. The model bears names that parallel those of the Calvary Mount region and the "tomb of Jesus" in Jerusalem, but Douzet found that the topography didn't match, even after a plaster cast was made. But his persistence paid off, for he has identified the landscape as representing the area around the old village of Périllos in the Durban–Corbières region well east of Rennes-le-Château (see www.perillos.com).

Readers will have to persist through this version translated from French, but should still find Douzet's thesis a rewarding read.
