Shadow of the Templars by Henry Lincoln

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

Henry Lincoln Speaks: Chronicle 3 ~ The Shadow of the Templars (1979)

With an all-new introduction and closing commentary by filmmaker Henry Lincoln. Almost 50 years later, the original televised documentary introducing the world to the mystery of Rennes-le-Château, the coded church of Bérenger Saunière, and the enigma that inspired The Da Vinci Code.

In 1968, Henry Lincoln stumbled across a book about the priest of a small village who supposedly discovered a great treasure. The Accursed Treasure written by Gérard de Sède was inspired by information provided by Pierre Plantard and contained hidden codes and messages which immediately piqued Lincoln's interest.

As a writer of film scripts, he began researching the story and in 1971 made his first film on the subject, The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem? Two other films followed - The Priest, the Painter, and the Devil in 1974 and The Shadow of the Templars in 1979. Together, these Chronicle films provide the first glimpse available to the English-speaking world of the mystery of Rennes-le-Château.

Inspired by the enigma, which was rapidly becoming a phenomenon, Lincoln went on to publish the 1982 best-seller Holy Blood, Holy Grail with Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh. The non-fiction title followed research through the Knights Templar, the Priory of Sion, and the Merovingian kings of France, finally proposing the hypothesis that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene. In 2003, Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code popularized and fictionalized Lincoln's research for a worldwide audience.

BUT THE STORY DIDN'T END THERE ...

Henry Lincoln continued his research and went on two write his two most important books - The Holy Place in 1992 and Key to the Sacred Pattern in 1998. These non-fiction titles never received much attention, but they presented an entirely new take on the mystery - something real, tangible, measurable, and indisputable ... something no one is talking about.

In her debut novel The Heretic ~ coming soon ~ Allysha Lavino presents the true discoveries of Henry Lincoln's lifetime of research into the mysteries of Rennes-le-Château. Providing a relatable and reliable overview of Lincoln's findings for the first time in fiction, Lavino explores how an ancient secret buried in code could the way we see the world.

Original DaVinci Code~Henry Lincoln

See also Henry Lincoln's 1979 documentary, The Shadow of the Templars,
A small paperback bought by Henry Lincoln changed his life. The story of a then little-known village in the foothills of the Pyrenees, the now famous Rennes-le- Chateau.

Henry Lincoln made three television documentary films for the BBC series, Chronicle. In 1972 The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem was the first anyone outside France had ever heard of this extraordinary story, and followed in 1975 by The Priest, the Painter, and the Devil then The Shadow of the Templars in 1979.
Lincoln brought in Richard Lee and Michael Baigent, which led to the bestselling book 1982, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail.

1,000 miles NNE of Rennes-le-Chateau finds us in the Baltic Sea on a tiny Danish island called Bornholm. The Danish institute for map production, the Kort & Matrikelstryrelsen, uses the crosses on the spires of the island's fifteen churches as trig points. Their positions are therefore published and known to the millimetre.

What makes the churches on Bornholm unique is that four of them have a circular ground plan, which flags up the possibility of certain historical associations for the churches. But it was the symbolic elements of this fact that inspired Haagensen to ask the question: is there a geometric relationship between the churches themselves?

What is worrying about the Bornholm geometry is that not only is its existence confirmed mathematically and statistically, thanks to the accuracy of the available trig point data, but that it displays a sense of purpose. Since Bornholm has set the benchmark for absolute geometric conformity so high, there will remain some question marks over the Rennes-le-Chateau geometry until is confirmed to the same accuracy. Moreover, despite its complexity and elegance, the Rennes-le-Chateau geometry seems more creative and expressive a work of art while Bornholm's geometry reads like a blueprint. The positions of the fifteen churches of Bornholm are the key to a complex, cohesive geometric design that, on the ground, is over 20 miles across. The design can be reproduced on a sheet of paper by anyone equipped with a straight edge, a compass and a simple set of instructions. But what really sets it apart, what demands that the whole phenomenon must be taken seriously from a historical and archaeological point of view, is that this design demonstrates an answer to a mathematical problem once though to be insoluble.

The Bornholm geometry demonstrates knowledge. It demonstrates how to create angles, it demonstrates how to create Pi, it demonstrates the golden section and the whole interlocking harmony of the circle, the triangle, square, pentagram, hexagram, etc., etc.. To us it must also demonstrate that whoever constructed this design must have regarded this knowledge as secret knowledge, sacred knowledge. Why else hide it so elaborately? The geometry of both Rennes-le-Chateau and Bornholm indicates an extraordinary commitment of manpower and surveying skill to the preservation of what? With our modern perspective it is difficult to see what could be deemed so extraordinarily special about geometry and its properties that renders it imperative to hide its secrets so obscurely and so permanently.

One thing consistent to both Bornholm and the Rennes-le-Chateau area is how strongly the Knights Templar figure once the histories are investigated. The fact of the round churches is a hallmark of Templar influence and, interestingly, the name Bornholm is a diminution of the original name of the island Burgunderholm. It is said that the Burgundians originally came from Bornholm and one of the most famous Burgundians was Bernard of Clairveaux protector of the Knights Templar. The Grand Master of the Knights Templar after Bernard's death was one Bertrand de Blanchefort and Blanchefort is the name given to the mountain adjacent to Rennes-le-Chateau in the pentacle of mountains.

Timewatch - The History of a Mystery (1996)

Unravelling one of history's most enduring riddles: the lost treasure of Rennes-Le-Chateau. A tangled tale of Knights Templar, priests and heretics, secret societies, publishers and other modern day treasure hunters.

See also The Original DaVinci Code:

The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (retitled Holy Blood, Holy Grail in the United States) is a controversial book by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln. The book was first published in 1982 by Jonathan Cape in London, as an unofficial follow-up to three BBC TV documentaries, part of the Chronicle series. One of the books, according to the authors, which influenced the project was L'Or de Rennes (later re-published as Le Trésor Maudit), a 1967 book by Gérard de Sède, with the collaboration of Pierre Plantard.

The Rennes-le-Chateau pentacle of mountains was first brought to public attention in the last of the BBC Chronicle films that Henry Lincoln made on the subject, The Shadow of the Templars, broadcast in 1979. One viewer, David Wood, was able to use his skills as a surveyor to push beyond Henry Lincoln's initial discovery and reveal the beginnings of what has turned out to be a vast temple of geometrical figures in the landscape of the Aude Valley. Wood subsequently published his own book Genisis (Baton Press 1985). His discoveries prompted Lincoln to investigate the geometry further himself, revealing the most amazing designs and correlations and supported by facts and figures (as laid out in The Holy Place, Cape 1991, Corgi 1992). More recently, the geometry was explored in a book called The Tomb of God (Andrews/Schellenberger Little Brown, 1996).

When it became known that the inference of the authors was that the body of Jesus was buried beneath Mount Cardou, a few kilometers from Rennes-le-Chateau, media hostility ensued. This culminated in an extraordinary television discrediting of Andrews and Schellengerger by BBC's Timewatch, which simultaneously also dragged down Lincoln's geometry upon which their conclusions had been drawn, with the result that many people have since subscribed to the same line of thought and not given the existence of the geometry the credence it deserves.

RENNES-LE-CHÂTEAU IS BEYOND QUESTION by Henry Lincoln

The Secret History of Knights Templar in North America 2018

Many have searched for the lost treasure of the Knights Templar, most famously at Oak Island. But what if the treasure wasn’t lost? What if this treasure--necessary to sanctify the Temple of Solomon and create a New Jerusalem--was moved through the centuries and protected by a sacred lineage of guardians, descendants of Prince Henry Sinclair and the Native American tribes who helped him?

The author explores how Sinclair’s journey from Nova Scotia across America also served to reactivate the sacred rose lines of North America through the building of “rose castles” and monuments, including the Newport Tower and the Kensington Rune Stone. Pinpointing the exact location of the Templar treasure still hidden in North America, the author also reveals the search for Templar sanctuaries to be the chief motivation behind the Lewis and Clark expedition.
