We then follow the enduring clues of the Black Madonna from Collioure the ancient seaport to the mysterious Rennes Le Chateau ending up at Rocamadour and the Madonna of Miracles.
We will explore Mary Magdalene and her true role in history including the messianic heirs. From the two centuries after Christ the Christian Gnostic teachings of spiritual awareness spread out from France, Britain, Ireland and Wales. In 325AD the Roman Church council of Nicaea under the Roman Emperor Constantine acted to unite Rome under a single religion for political reasons. They moved to stamp out the Gnostics and their anti dogmatic approach to spirituality. More than eighty gospels were considered for the New Testament and only a few were chosen to be included. Books, saints, the human lives of the Holy family as well as the Celtic and Nazarene Churches were banned as heretical. The original teachings and movement still continued in Europe until the inquisition and it is still alive today in the art, churches, suppressed books and secret sites of the Madonna.
We will also explore the Knights Templar who not only returned from the Holy land with documents that undermined the Churches teachings they established their own Cistercian churches in opposition to the Roman church. The Templars built and funded the age of the great Gothic cathedrals that had nothing to do with established Christian churches. They dedicated these Churches to Mary Magdalene, Nortre Dame our Lady whom they called the Grail of the World. We will discuss their legacy left within the Grail lore of the 12th century, which told of the descendant story of the Grail bloodlines. You will experience these magnificence places for yourself and feel the divine presence that emanates from this sacred Black Madonna sites.
