Priory of Sion

Priory of Sion

A Synopsis of the Priory of Sion Myth

The supposed history and significance of the Priory varies widely from writer to writer, but the basic story which has evolved over the last 30 years is roughly as follows:

  • Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and intended her to lead the Church after his death.
  •  
  • After the crucifixion, Mary fled to what is now southern France with their child or children where they found refuge in the local Jewish community.
  •  
  • A Fifth Century descendant of their sacred 'bloodline' became connected by marriage or sexual union with one of the earliest kings of the Frankish Merovingian line - the first royal house of France - who were themselves descended from ancient Israel.
  • When the Merovingian line was usurped by the Carolingians, the 'bloodline' was preserved in secret and became the French noble House of Lorraine.
  •  
  • The lord of this house, Godfrey of Bouillon, joined the First Crusade and, through the intervention of secret preservers of his lineage, became the first King of Jerusalem.
  •  
  • These secret backers of Godfrey were established in an abbey or priory on Mount Zion and were later known as the Priory of Sion. They went on to engineer the Order of Knights Templar.
  •  
  • The Priory had the Knights Templar excavate under the old Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, supposedly to find lost documents regarding Mary Magdalene, or perhaps the bones of Jesus or even the Ark of the Covenant.
  •  
  • In 1188, the Priory and the Knights Templar split - the Knights were later brutally suppressed and many executed in 1307.
  •  
  • For the next 600 years the Priory of Sion went underground, working through fronts and other secret societies to preserve the secret of the 'Bloodline' which was the real 'Holy Grail'.
  •  
  • In the late Twentieth Century, the Grand Master of the Priory, true heir to the throne of France and direct descendant of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, Pierre de Plantard, began to bring the Priory out of the shadows and initiate some form of political move of vast significance. Here the story breaks down, because Plantard died in 2000 without achieving anything or doing anything remarkable.
