rennes le chateau, la revelation

©© P.Silvain, www.rennes-le-chateau-la-revelation.com friday april 27th 2001


 The framework of the novel is the search for a treasure hidden in a place that is above suspicion, but very accessible; the "Quest" is that of its location. 

It uses the language of initiates (pp. 672 and 711):
- Templars:
"Finally, a lady appeared on the threshold of the vestibule, a nurse dressed in a large blue mantle marked with the red cross."
- Freemasons:
"The wind, blowing against her rapid pace, billowed the long blue veil that floated around her shoulders."

"Listen, think, reason, deduce and conclude."

 This concerns (p. 742) a greenhouse...with regular arcades, near an old detached house ("pavillon"); Patrice and Coralie discover there a tombstone with an old inscription "In golden letters worn smooth and soiled by the rain."
This is more than an allusion to Mgr PAVILLON, former Bishop of Aleth, near the village of Serres, and the tombstone of the Shepherds of Arcadia, containing the mysterious inscription.

 This mysterious Tomb is linked to the resurrection: because Patrice* and Coralie, walled up alive, will be saved from asphyxiation at the last minute by Lupin:

- page 763:
"We are walled up in this Tomb, buried alive and condemned to torture without being able to defend ourselves..."

- page 776:
"Then, and only then, Patrice realised clearly that he and Coralie had escaped death, that they were both alive, and that their Saviour must be this man whose sleep indicated a state of total security and a satisfied conscience."


1° -This is a secret located in the RAZES (p .694) (RASESSE is the anagram of ESSARES)
"Ah! My old ESSARES, you refuse to release your secret!."

 2° - A secret whose nature is known (p. 701):
"Now, ESSARES, why do you want us to compromise? We know your secret almost entirely..."

 3° - A secret whose location is not known (p. 702):
" – You know what it's about, but you are ignorant of how to use it. You don't know, if one may say, the location of this secret. And therein lies everything."


* Patrice must be read as a phonetic play on words: "Patre-IS", that is, the Shepherd Jesus...

 4° - A secret contained in the tomb of Marie de NEGRE D’ABLES:
In the novel, it is kept by a black, silent as a tomb:

- page 675:
"Ya-Bon, a sort of colossus, the colour of glistening coal, with frizzy hair and a few curly hairs on the chin...
...Moreover, Ya-Bon had lost the faculty of speech."

- Page 806:
"But in any case, what became certain was that Ya-Bon knew the hiding place where the sacks of gold had accumulated..."

- Page 807:
"He traced these two straight lines which, with the wall's line, which he underlined in addition, formed a triangle. The golden triangle."


5° - How to locate this triangle? (page 788).
"- And the golden triangle? Still a mystery? Because after all, there's no trace of a triangle in all this! Where is the golden triangle? Do you have any ideas about this?"


  - Near Aleth-les-Bains:
The Secret is entirely hidden in the title of the novel. Is a triangle not written D, and is it not pronounced DALETH in Hebrew, just like P. FERTE's  brilliant intuition about it, p. 88?


 7° - By the secret of ALCOR:
In the novel, it was the safe of the banker ESSARES, whose code was CORA, the first letters of the word CORAN, the key being "N". (And not, as one might have believed, of Coralie, his wife's first name).

Page 703:
"Those four turned to the right, by successive notches, and according to a word, which was the number of the lock, the word CORA."
In reality, CORALIE holds the key to the secret; coralie, in a phonetic play on words, is pronounced CORA  LIS, which indicates that it is necessary to scramble CORAL in order to go to IS.


 In "LA COMTESSE DE CAGLIOSTRO", LUPIN discovered the secret of Alcor:

"Ad Lapidem Currebat Olim Regina"
"The Queen ("Reine") ran towards the stone in the past."

The secret of Calor is that of the Philosopher's Stone, discovered by P. SILVAIN:
It is also that of the fourth enigma of the magus CAGLIOSTRO.

Currebat Ad Lapidem Olim Rhedae*
Run towards the stone of the Rennes of the past.


*Rhedae is the ancient name of Rennes (Reine in a phonetic play on words).


8° - The real key is the golden number, the "N", page 703:
"...There is no key (instrument). The fifth letter of the word, the N, is the letter of the central rosace."


9° - The treasure is hidden in a pile of sand (page  843):
LUPIN, alias Don Louis PERENNA (anagram of Lupin) gives France a treasure of three hundred million worth of gold hidden in a pile of sand on a bank of the Seine:
"...Not only without those who were looking for the gold being able to discover it there, but without even chance being able to reveal its presence to anyone. But to think, in a pile of sand! You look in a cellar, you look for anything that might form a grotto, a cavern, anything that's a hole, excavation, well, sewer, underground passage. But a pile of sand! Who would ever think of opening a little window in it to see what was going on? Dogs stop at its edge, children play and make sand pies, a railwayman stretches out and sleeps. Rain softens it, the sun hardens it, snow clothes it in white, but that occurs on the surface, on the part you can see. Inside, it's the impenetrable mystery. Inside, there are unexplorable shadows. There's no hiding place in the world equal to the interior of a pile of sand displayed in a public place."


10° - Near Rennes:

Sand = arena in Latin (in French, "arène", pronounced: "à Rennes").





You must go to the RAZES (§ 1), near Rennes (§ 10), to Aleth (§ 6); the secret of Alcor (§ 7) indicates that you have to start looking at the menhir of Aleth (the stone of the past), from where you have to measure the golden number, "N" (§ 8).
This leads to the mine, where you have to search an entrance concealed under a pile of sand (§ 9).
It is indicated that the Tomb of Marie de Nègre contains the secret (§ 4).
