Designed in the 17th century as the New Jerusalem of the Christian world, the island of Montreal became the new headquarters of a group of mystics that wanted to live as the flawless Primitive Church of Jesus. But they could not do that in the Old World! This book reveals the links between Montreal and: John the Baptist as patron saint; Melchizedek, the first king-priest and a father figure to the Templars and the Essenes; Stella Maris, the Star of the Sea from Mount Carmel; the Phrygian goddess Cybele as the androgynous Mother of the Church; St. Blaise, the Armenian healer or 'Therapeut' -- the patron saint of the stonemasons and a major figure to the Benedictine Order and the Templars; the presence of two Black Virgins, particularly one from Montaigu; an odd, Cabbalistic Tetragrammaton which does not spell YHVH; a Sulpician chapel which is based on the theme of the Temple of Solomon; an intriguing family coat of arms with twelve blue apples; and much more. After several journeys in Europe and Africa, Francine Bernier realised the history of her hometown contained a hidden dimension so far gone unnoticed and unrecorded. Her unique, detailed, three-year long and on-site analysis uncovers the secret history behind the foundation of a city in the French New World. Its destiny was to become the refuge of the most virtuous men and women who expected the return of a divine king-priest; a story connected with the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau, and the revival of a heterodox group whose marks, and those of the French masonic Compagnons, are still visible today, both in the old city and underneath.
