The article from the Rhedesium Website below relating to René Descadeillas overlooked the fact that Descadeillas concluded that Saunière’s source of wealth originated from Trafficking in Masses, as given in his 1974 book Mythologie du Trésor de Rennes: Histoire Veritable de l’Abbé Saunière, Curé de Rennes-le-Château – that was a revised and corrected version of his previous booklet Notice sur Rennes-le-Château et l'abbé Saunière, that Descadeillas withdrew from publication and put a block on it being photocopied in the Municipal Library in Carcassonne (a block that expired following his death in 1986; this information was not given by Pierre Jarnac when he published the book following the death of Descadeillas).

Yes – René Descadeillas referred to the stories of treasures surrounding the areas of Rennes-le-Château and Rennes-les-Bains – but he dismissed them as having nothing to do with Bérenger Saunière – and concluded the source of Saunière’s wealth originated from trafficking in masses – which was why he called his book MYTHOLOGY OF THE TREASURE OF RENNES.
