Re: Gnostics and Templars
Yes, the Les Dossiers Secrets d'Henri Lobineau does exist.... and it
was written by Plantard the modern inventer of the so called "Priory
of Sion". http://priory-of-sion.com/posd/posdebunking.html But this
is not related to Gnosticism in any way.
The name "Baphomet" is simply a medieval corruption of the name
Mohammed. I know, the "atbash cipher" theory is used to connect it
to Gnosticism, but we do have evidence to the contrary.
Your comparison between Zoroastrian and Gnostic texts is more on
topic here. You are welcome to tell us exactly what you see in this.
I could point out that while Manichaeism is not technically a form
of Gnosticism, it is closely related... AND, it grew partially out

and how they hid from the church in Masonic "lodges" .A reference to
the extinction of the Templars By Pope Clement Vth in France, a
weird reference to an idol of a head called Baphomet, a perhaps
accurate theory why Friday the 13th is still considered unlucky,
etc. I have visited Masonic lodges in different states and indeed
there exists two branches of Masonry, one called the Scottish Rite
and another French branch which may have been the Priory, however
it's been a while since my last visit, but it would account for a
french secret society mentioned in other works. Le Dossiers
definitely exists, and the History channel actually gave a brief
view of the document, as well as interviewing surviving ancestors of
the Merovingian bloodline listed in the doc... starting with
Dagobert the (3rd?). The family tree in question actually starts
with a fish though, which is
> definitely a case of Truth being stranger than fiction. Whatintrigued me most though, was D. Browns' use of the name Sophia as a
main character in I believe... Angels and Demons, which to me is
deliberate. I don't know much about the Rosicrucians though, I am
definitely interested in finding out more about them. Suggested
Reading? I think I avoided reading about them several years ago due
to exposure to Aliester Crowleys' works, (and mentions thereof) of
which I think are more gibberish than truth.No offense if you are a
fan. I have yet though to find any really convincing documents about
the Priory. Also, off the subject though... There seems to be some
similarities between Gnosticism and Zoroastrianism. Specifically...
The Zend Avista and it's resemblence to Hermetic doc.s and Gnostic
docs. Any info on this subject is also appreciated! Thanks again!
