From Jerusalem to Rennes-le-Chateau
Graham Simmans

Jesus did not die on the cross. He survived and went to southern France with his wife Mary. This possibility is proposed by Graham Simmans who spent many years on a quest to find the real beginnings of Christianity. Simmans believes that the spread of Christianity beyond Jerusalem was tied to Jesus' survival of the crucifixion and his subsequent emigration to Europe. Using Coptic and Jewish sources including the Talmud that allow a glimpse of the Christian philosophy espoused by Jesus he contends that true Christianity was brought into France Britain and Spain from first century Egypt and Judea not fourth and fifth-century Rome. His investigation shows that after a time in Egypt Jesus settled in Rennes-le-Château a sophisticated and cosmopolitan centre of spiritual diversity. It was a natural move for Jesus to settle in the Narbonne area of France - an area already heavily settled by Jewish and Gnostic groups. Here safely outside the reach of the cultural dictatorship of the Roman Church the Gnostic secrets he taught survived the centuries. Later the Knights Templar centred their activity in the Languedoc region around Rennes-le-Château where within the Jewish communities a well-connected and influential opposition to Rome already existed. This resistance to Rome gave rise to a religious culture that included elements of Gnostic Pythagorean and Kabbalistic teachings. Until the Crusades against the Cathar heretics reasserted the dominion of Rome the culture that flourished around Rennes-le-Château embodied the true essence of Christ's message. Graham Simmans (1919-2005) was the coauthor of Rex Deus: The True Mystery of Rennes-le-Château and the Dynasty of Jesus. He spent 15 years living in Rennes-le-Château to uncover these Christian secrets.
