RE: The Book Of Love

Cathar watermarks showed a serpent hanging on a cross spitting the Word

Cathar watermark with serpent spitting blue apples.
This bas-relief from Sion, Switzerland illustrates the medieval belief in the
concordance of the theft of the blue apples from the Anunnaki and the Crucifixion of
Jesus. Old Testament scenes are grouped together with the Passion of Jesus as if they happened at the same time.

When put together with depictions of Jesus (E.A.?) as a serpent on the Cross the
message is clear: the Gnostic Crucifixion was a stargate or wormhole event.

Joshua and his companion appear as the two thieves at the Crucifixion. From Sion,

The Gnostic wisdom spitting serpent.16 th century Germany.

Grail researcher Andrew Sinclair says the original French word for Grail was escuele.
Phonetically, escuele, like eschol, is ‘a skill’ (a skull or skool). This makes sense. Christ
was called ‘wisdom’. His skill involved a transformation of homo sapien into a pure one, a Cathar.

In conclusion, the blue apples of Eschol (the Languedoc?) represent powerful
physiological knowledge: the means to transform human blood into the blood of light
…preparatory to entering the gate of God.
Hundreds of thousands of Cathars were murdered because of this ultimate secret
It can happen again.

This subtitle deals with the gods of Sumer, down to biblical days, and Sir Laurence equates their titles, aptitudes and attitudes. An interesting result is that the god Enlil (son of Anu) and Jehovah are one and the same, simply called with different names as times and kingdoms changed. A must read.
Some excerpts follow:

"...YHWH, 'I am that I am'....

"To the Hebrews, Jehovah transcended even nature herself, and in consequence of this evolving thought the true harmony of humankind and nature was forfeit. In erstwhile Mesopotamian, Canaanite and Egyptian thought, the unexplainable divine was manifest within nature, and nature enveloped both the gods and society. This belief, however, was shattered for all time by the biblical Hebrews, who forsook harmony in favour of subservience. Hence the balance of relationship between humankind and the phenomenal world was destroyed, and what was ultimately lost was integrity.

"Nature (which is still referred to in the female sense) had been venerated as the great beneficial Mother, but the Mother was shunned by an evolving society which held the male godhead supreme - an unapproachable, unseen, solitary godhead, whose name could not even be uttered...

"... Even the righteousness of people, the highest of all personal and collective virtues, was devalued in comparison with the absolute deity, Note: Frankfort, H., Before Philosophy, p. 242., and people were made to feel (as many are today) that they were of very low esteem in the wider scheme of things:

Can a mortal be righteous before God, or a man be made pure
against his maker? Even in his servants he does not trust, and his
angels he charges with error. How much less them that dwell in
houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust' (Job 4:17-19).

"... In later times,it was this very inferiority complex which Jesus tried so hard to combat. He endeavoured to persuade Jews and Gentiles, lame and lepers that everyone had primary rights to self-esteem and personal dignity. But these rights were denied to all by the sanctified establishment. Jesus's mission was one of equality, balance and harmony - but his ambition was not to be fulfilled. In the event, was overcome by the ancient sectarian dogma of subjugation, so that people were left contained in a sterile wasteland of uncertainty. To this day, the Messianic dream prevails in the allegory of Grail Lore, which contends that, 'Only when the wound of the Fisher King is healed, will the wasteland return to fertility'.


"... As related by the Semitic scholar Raphael Patai, the four consonants of the Hebrew stem 'YHWH' (which became an eventual acronym for the One God) represented the four members of the Heavenly Family: Y represented El the Father; H was Ashtoreth the Mother; W corresponded to the Son, Baal, and H was the Daughter, Anath. Note: Patai, R., The Hebrew Goddess, passim.

"... The book of I Kings (11:5) explains that King Solomon worshipped Ashtoreth and the Holy of Holies was deemed to represent the womb of the divine Mother. As the supreme consort of El-Jehovah, Ashtoreth was an integral part of religious life in Judah until the reforms of King Josiah (2 Kings 23) at the time of the Babylonian invasion. Note: In I Kings 18:19 it is stated that there were 400 priests of Asherah (priests of the Groves, as Asherah's cult was called) at the table of Jezebel of Tyre, wife of King Ahab of Israel, c.876 BC.

"...To recap, we have a situation where the very same god and goddess were known by different names by different people in different regions. The goddess was Ashtoreth, Ashera, Elath, Ashratu, Atirat, Ninlil and Sud, while the god was Enlil, Ilu Kur-gal, Ashur, Amurru, El Elyon, El Shaddai and Jehovah.

"The other great goddess of the Hebrews was Anath, the daughter of Jehovah and Ashtoreth. Anath was Queen of the Heavens and she was also known as Astarte, meaning 'womb'...

"...In the Jewish tradition of Ha Qabala, Note: The Kabbalah is not an intellectual discipline as such, nor is it a rational exegesis of Jewish Law like the Talmud. It is first and foremost a mystical practice, fully integrated with Judaism as a whole. See also Epstein, Perle, Kabalah - The Way of the Jewish Mystic. Shambhala Publications, Boston, Mass., 1988, p. xvii., the female figures of Ashtoreth and Anath (being the wife and daughter of Jehovah) became merged into a single spiritual entity, an overall consort known as the Shekhina...

"...The Shekhina was a portrayal of the Holy Spirit - the epitome of Wisdom (in Greek, Sophia, and in Hebrew, Hochmah). Note: Davies, S., 'The Canaanite Hebrew Goddess', in Olson, C. (ed.), The Book of the Goddess - Past and Present, p. 77.

"... The legacy of Ha Qabala dates back well beyond Adam and Eve, to whom its secrets were disclosed by Enki (Samael) and Lilith, who were jointly defined as the 'Tree of Knowledge'...

"...Although not granted the right to a significant sister in the Hebrew tradition, Anath (Inanna) did indeed have an older sister in the Sumerian pantheon, and that sister was the formidable Eresh-kigal, Queen of the Netherworld. Note: Jacobsen, T., The Treasures of Darkness, p. 142. Being the senior female in the line from Tiamat the Dragon Queen, Eresh-kigal carried the paramount heritage of the 'Kingdom', which the Hebrews called the Malkhut. As the prevailing heiress of the Malkhut, Erish-kigal was likened to a precious jewel - a 'pearl' - a luluwa (the name of her granddaughter who became the wife of Cain). In his works concerning the Zohar, Gershom Scholem, Professor of Jewish Mystery Studies at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, related in 1941 that the accounts of Eresh-kigal's daughter Lilith were wholly related to the tradition of the Great Dragon - and the Dragon was the Malkhut.

"It is at this very point of searching for the female aspect that the Talmudic tradition sits today. As we have seen, Jehovah was YHWH: the tetrad (four persons) of Father, Mother, Son and Daughter. But the Bride (the inheritance of the daughter) is still lost in exile, and so the deity remains simply YHWH. It is consequently maintained that only when reunited with his Bride (the Shekhina-Matronit-Shabbat) can God become complete as YHWH again."

"...the 'Captivity' Judaeans had created a version of the One Goddess to complement the One God perception of the era... when Genesis was finalized, aspects of original Mesopotamian record had to be manipulated to suit the new situation, and although non-canonical works retained the tradition of Adam's first wife Lilith, only Eve was mentioned in Genesis. If Lilith had been brought into the approved picture then the whole concept of the 'first man' and the 'first woman', along with the One God and the One Goddess (the enigmatic Holy Spirit), would have been undermined."

One must remember from past chapters how Sir Laurence mentions that Enlil is one and the same as Jehovah. His brother Enki was often opposed to Jehovah's dealings, but the children of Israel always deemed Jehovah 'right'. Jehovah was a jealous and vengeful God.
Do not miss reading about this in its full form from the book "Genesis of the Grail Kings".

"...For no reason other than Jehovah's personal revenge upon the actions of a long-dead king, the Holy City and Temple of the Jews were demolished, while the Israelites and their families (tens of thousands of them) were held hostage for many decades in an alien environment. Upon their return to Jerusalem and Judaea they had every reason to fear the retribution of Jehovah, but they turned this fear into outright veneration and absolute obedience - a veneration which set the scene for all that was to follow in the Jewish and Christian religions, whose disciples became classified as 'God-fearing'.

"...The written legacy of the Anunnaki was, henceforth, confined to an underworld darkness, and all the tablets of Sumerian and Akkadian record that had been available to the hostage Jews of the sixth century BC were destined to be forgotten beneath the wasteland. Actually, they had been forgotten long before, during the period of general turmoil and upheaval.

"...If any religion has truly corrupted the original concept of Jehovah and the pantheon, then that religion is materialist Christianity. This is not the honest first-century Nazarene faith of Jesus, James and the Celtic Church, but the State religion contrived by Roman imperialists in the fourth century, from which there are not many competitive offshoots... Jehovah, the longstanding god of the Jews, was selected under particular circumstances and had a traditional heritage, but the unnamed God of modern Christianity evolved through Imperial invention. He is certainly not the God of Jesus, for this God was sublime discipline of self-awareness that dwells within everyone and needs no bridge-building pontiff to lay down the rules of access."


"Enki-Samael, being the brother of Enlil-Jehovah, was referred to by medieval Kabbalists as the 'Other God' and his marriage to Lilith is said to have been arranged by Taninvar the blind dragon. Note: Patai, R., Hebrew Goddess, p. 246. However, Lilith was not only the wife of Samael and the first consort of Adam; she was also said to have become Jehovah's partner after the fall of the Temple of Jerusalem when the Matronit (Ashtoreth-Anath) was lost in earthly exile. Lilith, although holding the reins of the Malkhut (the Kingdom), was acting handmaiden to the Matronit, and Jehovah was perceived to be degraded by his new liaison. Citing the book of Proverbs (30:23), the Jewish Zohar chastises Jehovah for making the handmaid 'heiress to her mistress' and asks, 'Where is his honour? The King without the Matronit is not called the King.' Note: Zohar 3:69.

"Because of this unwelcome coupling, Lilith was proclaimed to be an evil seductress who had beguiled Jehovah with her beauty and charm... the eminent Semitic scholar Dr Raphael Patai says of Lilith: 'Evidently, this is no lowly she-demon (as portrayed by the later Hebrews), but a goddess who tames wild beasts'. Note: Patai, R., The Hebrew Goddess, p. 222..

"...The Hebrews were not at all used to determined, liberated women like Lilith and it is hardly surprising that, all the vengeful things said against her, she has emerged in the modern age to represent the fundamental ethic of female opportunity. By the first century AD, the Jews were absolutely paranoid about the danger of Lilith, and it was even said that she was a nocturnal succuba, who would take sexual advantage of men while she was asleep. In order to take preventive action, a certain Rabbi Hanina decreed, 'It is forbidden for a man to sleep alone in a house, lest Lilith get hold of him!'.

"It was in its dealings with the heritage of Lilith that the Jewish Church of the Middle Ages came to shadow the Christian Church's denigration of Mary Magdalene - Note: Gardner, L., Bloodline of the Holy Blood, passim., and it was for the very same reason that she was proclaimed a wicked harlot and a sorceress. Note: This was not an uncommon description. In the Epic of Lugal-banda, even Inanna/Anath is described as a harlot, as were most goddesses at one time or another. See also Jacobsen, T., The Treasures of Darkness, p. 139. Whereas Mary Magdalene was the wife of Jesus and the mother of the sacred Bloodline (the Sangreal) from the first century, it was with Lilith that all began, about 4000 years before. In fact, that is not strictly true, for it began with Tiamat, Queen of the Apsu (the underground waters), in primeval times, but Lilith was the senior heiress, which is why she was likened to a serpent or a dragon... The Anunnaki hierarchs, Ningirsu (Ninurta) and Ningishzida were, for example, classified as "Great Dragons'."

The Merovingian Mythos:
Its Symbolic Significance and its Roots in the Ancient Kingdom of Atlantis
by Tracy R. Twyman

P.O. Box 18331
Denver, CO 80218

The Frankish King Dagobert II, and the Merovingian dynasty from which he came, have been romantically mythologized in the annals of both local legend and modern mystical pseudo-history, but few have understood the true meaning and origins of their alluring mystery. The mystique that surrounds them includes attributions of saintliness, magical powers (derived from their long red hair), and even divine origin, stemming from their supposed descent from the one and only Jesus Christ. However, the importance of the divine origin of the Merovingians, and the antiquity from whence it comes, has never to this author's knowledge been fully explored by any writer or historian. As Boyd Rice and I will explain in more detail in our forthcoming book, we have uncovered mountains of evidence which indicates that the origins of the Merovingian race, and the mystery that surrounds them, lies ultimately with a race of beings, "Nephilim," or "Fallen Angels," who created mankind as we know him today, and with a civilization, far more ancient than recorded history, from which came all of the major arts and sciences that are basic to civilizations everywhere, even unto today. As we intend to show, all of the myths and symbolism that are associated with this dynasty can, in fact, be traced back to this earlier civilization. It is known, in some cultures, as Atlantis, although there are many names for it, and it is the birthplace of agriculture, astronomy, mathematics, metallurgy, navigation, architecture, language, writing, and religion. It was also the source of the first government on Earth - monarchy. And the first kings on Earth were the gods.

Their race was known by various names. In Greece, the Annodoti. In Sumeria, the Annunaki. In the Celtic lore, the Tuatha de Danaan. In the Semetic scriptures (Torah, Talmud, Old Testament, and other Apocryphal texts like the Book of Enoch), they are called The Nephilim, "The Sons of God," or the Watchers. They are described as having attachments such as wings, horns, and even fish scales, but from the depictions it is clear that these are clothes or costumes worn for their symbolic value, for these symbols indicated divine power and royal blood. The gods themselves had their own monarchy, with laws of succession similar to our own, and they built a global empire upon the Earth, with great cities, temples and monuments, and mighty nations established on several continents. They created mankind as a slave race to work on their farms and in their gold mines, among other things. The Sumerian legends are very clear: man was made to "bear the yoke of the gods." Man was separate from the gods, like a domesticated animal, and there was a great cultural taboo amongst the gods against sharing any of their sacred information with humanity, even things such as writing and mathematics. These gods ruled directly over Egypt, Mesopotamia, and the Indus Valley, and their rule is recorded in the histories of all three civilizations.

This global monarchy was the crowning glory of the Ages, and the period of their rule came to be called the Golden Age or, as the Egyptians called it, "The First Time," when the gods watched over man directly, like a shepherd his flock. In fact, they were often called "The Shepherd Kings." One of the symbols of this world monarchy was an eye hovering over a throne, and this eye now adorns our dollar bill, presented as the missing capstone of the Great Pyramid of Giza, underneath which are written the words "New World Order." Clearly this "New World Order" is the global monarchy that our Founding Fathers (not a Democrat among them) intended for this nation to participate in all along, symbolized by a pyramid as a representation of the ideal and perfectly ordered authoritarian empire. During the Golden Age of the Gods, a new king's ascendance to the global throne would be celebrated by the sacrifice of a horse, an animal sacred to Poseidon, one of the Atlantean god-kings and Lord of the Seas. (Recall that Merovingian King Clovis was buried with a severed horse's head.) In fact there is an amusing story about how King Sargon's rebellious son Sagara tried to prevent his father's assumption of the world throne from being solidified by stealing his sacrificial horse. The horse was not recovered until years later, and Sagara, along with the "sons of Sagara," i.e., those members of his family who had assisted him, were forced to dig their own mass grave. This grave was oddly called "The Ocean."

It was just a rebellion such as this that lead to the downfall of the entire glorious Empire. At some point, it is told, some of the gods broke rank. This is again recorded in just about every culture on Earth that has a written or oral history of legends. Some of the gods, finding human females most appealing, intermarried with them (breaking, of course, a major taboo within their own culture), and creating a race of human/god hybrids. Some of these offspring are described as taking the form of giants, dragons, and sea monsters, while others are said to have born a normal human countenance, with the exception of their shimmering white skin and their extremely long life spans. This is the bloodline that brought us Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, King David, Jesus Christ, and many others, in other words the Grail Bloodline. Legend has it that these beings taught mankind their secrets, including the above-mentioned arts of civilization, as well as a secret spiritual doctrine that only certain elect humans (their blood descendants) would be allowed to possess. They created ritualistic mystery schools and secret societies to pass this doctrine down through the generations.

However, these actions (the interbreeding and sharing of secrets with humans) incurred the wrath of the Most High God, and a number of other gods who were disgusted by this interracial breeding. This sparked the massive and devastating battle of the gods that has come down to us in the legends of both the "War in Heaven," and the "Deluge." Then, in order to cleanse the Earth"s surface of the curse of humanity, they covered it with a flood. Interestingly, this flood is mentioned in the legends of almost every ancient culture on Earth, and the cause is always the same. Often the waters are described as having come from inside the Earth. "The Fountains of the deep are opened," it is said. "Suddenly enormous volumes of water issued from the Earth." Water was "projected from the mountain like a water spout." The Earth began to rumble, and Atlantis, fair nation of the gods, sunk beneath the salty green waves. As we shall see, this is analogous to part during the "War in Heaven" when the "rebellious" angels or gods were punished by being cast down "into the bowels of the Earth," a very significant location.

To be certain, some of the Atlanteans managed to survive, and many books have been written about the Atlantean origin of the Egyptian, Sumerian, Indo-Aryan, and native South American civilizations (bringing into question the validity of the term "Native American"). Little, however, has been written about those who escaped into Western Europe, except for a passing reference in Ignatius Donnelly's Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, in which he writes:

"The Gauls (meaning the French) possessed traditions upon the subject of Atlantis which were collected by the Roman historian Timagenes who lived in the first century before Christ. He represents that three distinct people dwelt in Gaul: 1. The indigenous population, which I suppose to be Mongoloids, who had long dwelt in Europe; 2. The invaders from a distant land, which I understand to be Atlantis; 3. The Aryan Gaul."

That the Merovingian bloodline came from elsewhere is clear because of the legend that surrounds their founder, King Merovee, who is said to have been the spawn of a "Quinotaur," a giant fish or a sea monster, who raped his mother when she went out to swim in the ocean. Now it becomes clear why he is called "Merovee," because in French, mer means sea. And in some traditions, Atlantis was called Meru, or Maru. (It is also the name of the famous "World Mountain" of Eastern tradition.) For these gods, navigation above all was important to them, for it was their sea power that maintained their military might and their successful mercantile trade. (Mer is also the origin of the word "mercantile.") The Atlanteans were associated with the sea and were often depicted as mermen, or sea monsters, with scales, fins, and horns. And they were variously associated with a number of important animals, whose symbolism they held sacred: horses, bulls, goats, rams, lions, fish, serpents, dragons, even cats and dogs. And as we will see, all of these things relate back to the sea imagery with which these gods were associated.

Now lets go back to the Quinotaur, which some have named as being synonymous with Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea and, according to Plato, one of the famous kings of Atlantis. Others have seen it as being emblematic of the fish symbol that Christ is associated with, thus indicating that he was in fact the origin of the bloodline. However, the roots of this Quinotaur myth are far more ancient. The word itself can be broken down etymologically to reveal its meaning. The last syllable, "Taur", means "Bull." The first syllable "Quin," or "Kin," comes from the same root as "King," as well as the Biblical name of Cain, whom many have named as the father of a particular branch of the Grail family. The Bull King who swims in the ocean is a recurring theme in many ancient cultures, most notably, ancient Mesopotamia. In fact, he comes from that dynasty of kings who reigned over the antediluvian world and who were all associated with the sea, as well as this divine animal imagery. These kings included Sargon, Menes, and Narmar. Their historical reality morphed into the legends we have in many cultures of gods said to have come out of the sea at various times and taught mankind the basic arts of civilization: agriculture, metallurgy, architecture, navigation, mathematics, medicine, etc. They were known by various names: Ea, Enki, Dagon, Oannes, or Marduk (Merodach). They were depicted as half-man, half-fish, half-goat half-fish, or half-bull, half-fish, but as we have said, in many of these depictions it is clear that this affect was merely achieved by the wearing of costumes, and that these god-kings were using this archetypal imagery to deify themselves in the minds of their subjects.

Dagon, Oannes and Enki are essentially synonymous, and interestingly, Marduk or Merodach is his son, just as Merovee is the son of the Quinotaur. Dagon was depicted with a fish on his head, the lips protruding upward, making what were referred to as "horns." This may be the origin for the custom (common in the ancient world) of affixing horns to the crown of a king. It has also been historically acknowledged as the origin of the miter that the Pope wears. (Now we understand why, in the post-mortem photo of Berenger Sauniere lying on his death bed, this small parish priest is seen next to a Bishop's miter.) The Christian Church has always been associated with fish. Christ himself was, as was John the Baptist, and the early Christians used the fish sign of the "icthys" to designate themselves. From Dagon's name Oannes we get the words "Uranus," "Ouranous," "Jonah," "Janus," and "John." Perhaps we finally now understand why the Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion assume the symbolic name of John.

The syllable "Dag" merely means fish, which makes it interesting to note that the Dogon tribe of Africa, who have long baffled astronomers with their advanced knowledge of the specifics of the faraway star-system from which, they say, their gods came, claim that these gods were "Fish-Men." This author wonders if the words "Dag" and "Dog" aren't etymologically related, especially since the star from whence these fish-men supposedly came is named Sirius, "The Dog Star." From Dagon comes our word "Dragon," as well as the Biblical figure of Leviathan, "The Lord of the Deep," a title also applied to Dagon. In fact, many of these gods received the titles "The Lord of the Waters," "The Lord of the Deep," and "The Lord of the Abyss," which appear to have been passed down from father to son along with the throne of the global kingdom. They are specifically associated with the Flood of Noah, which as I have mentioned, destroyed their global kingdom and was somehow linked to their disastrous breeding experiment with the human race that lead to the Grail Bloodline, to which the Merovingians belong. For this they were consigned to the Abyss or the Underworld, which is why these gods were known as the Lords of both.

Enki was also known as the "Lord of the Earth," and it is because of this "amphibious" nature of their progenitor, reigning over both land and sea, that the Merovingians are associated with frogs. But this "Lord of the Earth" title is significant, for this is a title also given to Satan. And it has been historically acknowledged that Enki, as the "Fish-Goat Man," is prototype for the Zodiac sign of Capricorn, which is itself recognized as the prototype for the modern conception of Satan or Lucifer.

Furthermore, a well-known and pivotal episode in Enki's career was his rebellion against his brother Enlil over the succession of the global throne. Enki eventually slayed Enlil, something that is recorded in the Egyptian myth of Set murdering Osiris, and perhaps in the Biblical story of Cain murdering Abel. Cain eventually became King - in fact that's where the word comes from, and now it makes perfect sense why Enki would be called the "Quinotaur." The identity of Enki and Enlil with Cain and Abel can be further proven by the fact that Enki and Enlil were the son of Anu (in some Sumerian legends, the first god-king on Earth), whereas Cain and Abel were the sons of "Adamu - the First Man." Adamu and Anu appear to be etymologically related.

This family feud erupted into a long and overdrawn battle between the gods, who were split into two factions over the issue. These appear to be the same two factions who were at odds over the mating of gods and men to create the Grail Bloodline. Those who supported Enki, Satan or Cain were clearly the ones who were inclined to breed with mankind, perhaps in attempt to create a hybrid race that could assist them in retaining the throne for Cain. But they were overpowered. After they lost the "War in Heaven," they were cast into the Abyss, according to legend, now the realm of Satan, and the Earth was flooded so as to rid the Earth of their offspring.

Yet according to the legends, those gods who had created the hybrid race attempted to contact one of their most favored descendants - called Uta-Napishtim in the Sumerian legends, or Noah in the Jewish - and helped him to rescue himself and his family, preserving the seed of hybrid humanity. (Uta-Napishtim contains the Sumerian and Egyptian word for fish, "Pish," and perhaps we can see why some authors have claimed that the character of Noah is in fact based on Oannes/Dagon/Enki as well.) We see remnants of this in the Vedic legends of the Flood, in which the surviving family is warned about the Flood by a horned fish called the Manu (who turns out to be the Hindu god Vishnu in disguise). He tells them to build an Ark, and then tie its mast to his horn, then proceeds to tow them to safety upon a high mountain. So clearly Vishnu is the same as Enki, Dagon, and Oannes, and clearly he is the one who saved Noah from the Flood. Yet this same kind deed became attributed, in the Old Testament, to the same God, Jehovah, who had caused the Flood to begin with. In fact the word Jehovah, or "Jah" is said to have evolved from the name of another Sumerian sea god-king, Ea, "The Lord of the Flood." Likewise, Leviathan, or Dagon is responsible in some references for "vomiting out the waters of the Flood." This occurs at the Apocalypse in the Book of Revelations as well. Leviathan, like many of these sea gods, was the Lord of the Abyss, or "Absu" in Sumerian, and these waters were believed to he holding the Earth up from underneath, in the regions of Hell. And yet "Leviathan" is almost surely etymologically related to the Jewish name "Levi," and therefore the "Tribe of Levi," the priestly caste of the Jews from whence part of Christ's lineage came.

This dual current, being associated with both the Heavenly and the Infernal, with both Jesus and Jehovah, Satan and Lucifer, is something that has marked the history of the Merovingian dynasty, as well as all of the other Grail families, and the entire Grail story itself. It is at the heart of the secret spiritual doctrine symbolized by the Grail. This symbolism hits you immediately when you walk in the door of the church at Rennes-le Chateau and see those opposing statues of the demon Asmodeus and Jesus Christ staring at the same black and white chequered floor, which itself symbolizes the balance of good and evil. This principle is further elucidated by the words placed over the doorway, "This place is terrible, but it is the House of God and the Gateway to Heaven." This phrase turns up in two significant places. One is in the Bible, when Jacob has his vision of the ladder leading to Heaven, with angels ascending and descending. The other is in the Book of Enoch, when Enoch is taken for a tour of Hell. The existence of this phrase at the entrance to the church, coupled with the images that meet you immediately therein, render the meaning obvious. For Berenger Sauniere, who arranged these strange decorations, this Church represented some kind of metaphysical gateway between Heaven and Hell.

For this reason, the double-barred Cross of Lorraine, symbolizing this duality, has come to be associated with the Merovingians. In a now famous poem by Charles Peguy, is it stated:

"The arms of Jesus are the Cross of Lorraine,
Both the blood in the artery and the blood in the vein,
Both the source of grace and the clear fountaine;
The arms of Satan are the Cross of Lorraine,
And the same artery and the same vein,
And the same blood and the troubled fountaine."

The reference to Satan and Jesus sharing the same blood is very important. A tradition exists, one which finds support among the Book of Enoch and many others, that Jesus and Satan are brothers, both sons of the Most High God, and they both sat next to his throne in Heaven, on the right and left sides, respectively, prior to Satan's rebellion and the War in Heaven. This may be just another version of the persistent and primordial "Cain and Abel" story. It makes sense that Satan should both be a direct son of God, since he is described as God's "Most Beloved Angel" and "The Brightest Star in Heaven." (Note: The Book of Enoch refers to the Watchers, or Nephilim, as "stars," with various "watchtowers" in the houses of the Zodiac. Bear in mind that the ancients saw the sky above as a giant "Sea," the waters of which were kept at bay by the "Firmament of Heaven" - that is, until the Flood.)

However, this symbol is far older than the modern conceptions of Christ and Satan, or Lucifer. As Boyd Rice will explain to you in another article, this symbol can be traced back to the hieroglyphs of ancient Sumer, where it was pronounced "Khat," "Kad," and sometimes even "Cod." This was another title for the kings who were known as god of the sea, and the word "Khatti" became associated with his entire race, and the region that was their capitol, "Amarru," "The Land to the West" (like Meru, the alternate term for Atlantis). This land was symbolized by a Lion, which may explain the origin of the word "Cat," as well as why the lion is now a symbol of royalty. We would argue that this was at the root of the word "Cathari" (the heretics associated with the Holy Grail who occupied the Languedoc region of France that the Merovingians ruled over), and Adam Kadmon, the Primordial Man of alchemy, as well as the Mesopotamian kingdom of "Akkadia," which itself has morphed into "Arcadia," which further morphs into Acacia, the traditional Sprig of Hope and symbol of Resurrection after death. Perhaps this sheds further light on the phrase "Et in Arcadia Ego," which pops up more than once in association with the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau and the Merovingians. This phrase was illustrated by Nicholas Poussin with the scene of a tomb, a human skull, and three shepherds. The tomb and skull clearly represent death, while the Sprig of Acacia implied by the word "Arcadia" translates to "resurrection from death." The Shepherds, furthermore, represent the divine kingship of the Atlantean gods and the Grail bloodline, for these god-monarchs were also known as the "Shepherd Kings" (a title, notably, taken up by Jesus as well.) This indicates that it is the Global Monarchy of these Atlantean gods that shall rise again from the tomb, perhaps through the Merovingian bloodline.
