New book sheds light on the historical mystery of Rennes-le-Château in France
Breakthrough solutions to one of the great unsolved enigmas of our times
By: Ignotum Press
Author Simon M. Miles describes his new book:
"The riddle of Rennes-le-Châ
The story was first brought to wide public attention in the late 1960s in France with the publication of The Gold of Rennes (1967) by Gérard de Sède. It told the story of a priest in the tiny village of Rennes-le-Châ
Now, for the first time, this new book provides answers to many of the key questions which hover over the Affair. These include the discovery of some extraordinary ancient interventions in the landscape around the village, located in the foothills of the Pyrenees. It also presents the solution to the mysterious coded parchments, said to have been found by the priest, but subsequently shown to be twentieth century concoctions. These are shown to conceal a hidden geometrical map, the "map in the manuscript" of the book's title.
This is just the beginning of the secrets revealed in this new book, published by Ignotum Press, an independent small publisher based near Manchester, UK. It also explores a strange surrealist poem published in 1967, (Le Serpent Rouge) whose author has remained unidentified until now. The revelation of the identity of this author is a major turning point in understanding the mystery, and reveals the involvement of a hitherto unsuspected figure in the Affair, a respected French academic and professor who has never previously been associated with these events.
Richly illustrated, with over 140 full colour images including maps, photographs and diagrams, The Map and the Manuscript: Journeys in the Mysteries of the Two Rennes promises to rewrite the history of the Affair of Rennes, presenting the true story of how the knowledge of a hidden archaeological wonder of the past has been preserved and transmitted down through the ages to our time.
