Sandy Hamblett, webmaster of the Rhedesium Website once referred to a “Lesson In Impartiality” on 12 November 2015, claiming I was biased.


For seven years Sandy Hamblett has been running the Rhedesium Website peddling bloodlines, treasures, secrets and mysteries at Rennes-le-Château and Rennes-les-Bains – and taking books like The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail seriously. Time and time again Sandy Hamblett has avoided answering the question as to why bloodlines, treasures, mysteries and secrets should exist in Rennes-le-Château and Rennes-les-Bains – since all the evidence shows these Amazing Stories are the products of charlatans and conspiracy theorists.

For seven years Sandy Hamblett has been an outspoken proponent of the conspiracy theories associated with Rennes-le-Château. A one-time supporter of Ben Hammott’s claims about a tomb located in the region – she was forced to back down after the protagonist admitted it was all one big hoax and a lie.

So, in response to Sandy Hamblett’s “Lesson in Partiality” against me, it can be said that the only reason Sandy Hamblett refuses to acknowledge that Saunière obtained his wealth from trafficking in masses – for which there is abundant evidence – is because she wants to believe in the bloodlines, treasures, mysteries and secrets that have been debunked and discredited for as long as the subject matter has existed – from Roger Crouquet, to René Descadeillas, to Jean-Jacques Bedu, to David Rossoni – not to mention DRAC, the national archaeological body of France, representing the Ministry of Culture of France.

Of course, everybody knows why the local Municipality of Rennes-le-Château supports the scams associated with Saunière – financial revenue from Tourism. And a good story has always spawned tourism. Nobody turns down money.

There is nothing wrong with being partial to the facts and the evidence. Being partial to the facts and evidence shows that Saunière, according to the Sentence of 5 November 1910, was sentenced to ten days penance at Prouille monastery partly “for having trafficked in fees for Masses for many years and especially since 1896; he has requested fees everywhere and has obtained a very large number of them, the discharge of which he is unable to prove”.

Part of this same Sentence also reads as follows: “CONSIDERING that Abbé Bérenger Saunière admits to having requested and obtained a considerable number of Masses, without contesting the figures given by the Official Prosecutor”.

The facts and the evidence show that Saunière was stripped of his priesthood for refusing to show his carnets at his trial, because that would have been an admission of his guilt. Correspondence between Saunière and the Banque Petitjean shows that he put his Domain up for sale and that he wanted to move away from Rennes-le-Château to Lourdes.

None of these facts are found on the Rhedesium Website. For this reason alone, the Rhedesium Website is not a very good example of impartiality.

This Website not only presents the evidence and the facts – it also demonstrates that all references to bloodlines, treasures, mysteries and secrets at Rennes-le-Château and Rennes-les-Bains are without foundation and did not exist during the late 19th and early 20th century – that the spurious accounts originated decades after the deaths of Bérenger Saunière and Henri Boudet.
