Saint Michael's line

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Saint Michael's line

The Saint Michael's Line, also known as the Sword of Saint Michael,[1][2] is a postulated ley line connecting monasteries and other sacred sites dedicated to the Archangel Michael in Europe and the Holy Land. The aligned sites are almost all located on prominent hilltops, and include Skellig MichaelSt Michael's MountMont Saint-Michel, the Sacra di San MicheleSan Michele Arcangelo, the Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo, the Panormitis Monastery of the Archangel Michael, Symi, and Stella Maris Monastery; although the latter is not explicitly dedicated to St Michael, the mountain on which it sits, Mount Carmel, is associated with the archangel by the biblical story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18).[3][4]

There are claims that the line perfectly aligns with the sunset on the day of the Northern Hemisphere’s Summer Solstice[5] (however, sunrise/sunset maps show this to be incorrect [6]).


As with other ley lines, no scientific evidence indicates that the alignment was planned and meaningful, making the claim pseudoscientific, but commonly reported at these sites. Physicist Luca Amendola noted that the deviation of these sites from the loxodrome that allegedly connects them ranges between 14 km and 42 km.[4]

According to legend, the Sacred Line of Saint Michael represents the blow the Saint inflicted upon the Devil when he cast him into Hell, as per the story of the Fall of Satan.[7]

Some also say that it is a reminder from Saint Michael that the faithful are expected to be righteous, walking the straight path.[8]

The Throne Room, which contains a copy of Sir Thomas Lawrence's portrait of King George IV of Great Britain and Ireland (the portrait on the right of the above photograph) and the portrait of King George I of Greece (the portrait on the left side).

The Palace of St. Michael and St. George (GreekΑνάκτορο των Αγίων Μιχαήλ και Γεωργίου) is a palace in Corfu City on the island of Corfu, Greece. Commissioned by Sir Thomas Maitland, it originally served as the residence of the British Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands. It was built between 1819 and 1824, to a neoclassical design of Colonel George Whitmore.

The building is also known as the Royal Palace, the City Palace,[1] or locally by the Greek name Palaia Anaktora (Παλαιά Ανάκτορα; literally "Old Palace").


The palace was commissioned by Sir Thomas Maitland, the British Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands. It served as the High Commissioner's residence, but was also the home of the Ionian Senate and the Order of St Michael and St George. The foundation stone was laid on St. George's day in 1819, and it was completed in 1824.[2] The location is between the old town of Corfu and the Venetian-era Old Fortress.

The palace was designed in the Greek Revival style of neoclassical architecture. It was designed by the British architect George Whitmore, who was a Colonel and later a Major-General in the Royal Engineers. The building primarily consists of limestone imported from Malta, and Maltese workers were employed in its construction. The sculptural elements of the palace are the work of the Maltese sculptors Vincenzo and Ferdinando Dimech, as well as the Corfiot sculptor Pavlos Prosalentis.[3]

After the union of Corfu with the Kingdom of Greece in 1864, the palace served as a royal residence; up to 1967, the Greek king occasionally used the palace on state occasions while in residence at his nearby villa, Mon Repos.

Today the palace houses the Museum of Asian art of Corfu. The collection of the museum started in 1927 and consists mostly of donations, the largest being from Gregorios Manos with 10,500 pieces.

The two gateways which flank the palace are the gate of St. Michael and the gate of St. George. The state rooms consist of a grand staircase, a rotunda in the centre leading to two large rooms, the Throne Room and the state dining room. The palace was renovated for the European Union Summit meeting in 1994.


The palace gardens, complete with old Venetian stone aquariums, exotic trees and flowers, overlook the bay through old Venetian fortifications and turrets. The local sea baths are at the foot of the fortifications surrounding the gardens. A café on the grounds includes its own art gallery, with exhibitions of both local and international artists. It is locally known as the Art Café. From the same spot, the viewer can observe ships passing through the narrow channel of the historic Vido island (Βίδο Κέρκυρας) to the north, on their way to Corfu harbour (Νέο Λιμάνι), with high speed retractable aerofoil ferries from Igoumenitsa cutting across the panorama. A wrought-iron aerial staircase is also to be found, closed to garden visitors, descending to the sea from the gardens, and formerly used by the Greek royal family as a shortcut to the baths. Following the end of the Greek monarchy, the old Royal Gardens are now known as the "Garden of the People" (Ο Κήπος του Λαού).

Archangel Michael


The Holy Archangel Michael is one of the most celebrated of the Angels and bodiless powers; he is called the Archistrategos, or chief commander, of all the bodiless powers. According to Holy Scripture and Tradition, he has interceded for humanity multiple times and continues to serve as the Defender of the Faith The name Michael means "like unto God" or "Who is like unto God?"

Michael first appears in the Old Testament in the book of Joshua's account of the fall of Jericho. Though Michael is not mentioned by name in the text, it is said that Joshua "looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand." When the still unaware Joshua asks which side of the fight the Archangel is on, Michael responds, "neither...but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come" (Joshua 5:13-14).

In the book of Daniel, Michael appears first to help the Archangel Gabriel defeat the Persians (10:13). In a later vision it is revealed to Daniel that "at that time [the end times] Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then..." (Ch. 12)1. Michael thus plays an important role as the protector of Israel and later of his chosen people, the Church.

The Church Fathers also ascribe to Michael the following events: During the Exodus of the Israelite from Egypt he went before them in the form of a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night; the power of the great Chief Commander of God was manifest in the annihilation of the 185 thousand soldiers of the Assyrian emperor Sennacherib (4/2 Kings 19:35); also in the smiting of the impious leader Heliodorus (2 Macc. 3: 24-26); and in the protection of the Three Holy Youths: Ananias, Azarias and Misail, thrown into the fiery furnace for their refusal to worship an idol (Dan 3:22-25). Through the will of God, the Chief Commander Michael transported the Prophet Habbakuk (December 2) from Judea to Babylon, to give food to Daniel in the lions' den (Dan. 14:33-37). The Archangel Michael disputed with the devil over the body of the holy Prophet Moses (Jude 1:9).

In New Testament times, the holy Archangel Michael showed his power when he miraculously saved a young man, cast into the sea by robbers with a stone about his neck on the shores of Mt Athos. This story is found in the Athonite Paterikon, and in the Life of St Neophytus of Docheiariou (November 9).
Perhaps his most famous miracle, though, is the salvation of the church at Colossae. Here a number of pagans tried to destroy this church by diverting the flow of two rivers directly into its path. However, the Archangel appeared amongst the waters, and, carrying a cross, channeled the rivers underground so that the ground the church stood on would not be destroyed. The spring which came forth after this event is said to have special healing powers.

Michael also has been associated with healing in other cases, as well as his primary role as leader of the Church Militant. He has been said to appear to Emperor Constantine the Great (d. 337) at Constantinople, to have intervened in assorted battles, and appeared, sword in hand, over the mausoleum of Hadrian, in apparent answer to the prayers of Pope St. Gregory I the Great (r. 590-604) that a plague in Rome should cease.
Russians in particular have a special veneration to Michael, along with the Theotokos. According to OCA, "Intercession for Russian cities by the Most Holy Queen of Heaven always involved Her appearances with the Heavenly Hosts, under the leadership of the Archangel Michael. Grateful Rus acclaimed the Most Pure Mother of God and the Archangel Michael in church hymns. Many monasteries, cathedrals, court and merchant churches are dedicated to the Chief Commander Michael. In Rus there was not a city where there was not a church or chapel dedicated to the Archangel Michael."

The Holy Archangel Michael

MichaelThe angelic hosts have to defend the creation against the spiritual powers which seek to cast it into ruin. The Apocalypse shows us the celestial war was, which Michael and his angels fight against the dragon and his angels (Rev 12:7-9), a war which continues on earth in the spiritual combats in which men are assisted by angels. Hence the warrior like character that angelic apparitions often take. Thus, the "captain of the Lord" appeared to Joshua with a sword in his hand (Joshua 5:13-15). the Archangel Michael "chief captain of the host" (Archistrategos) presides over the struggle against the forces of the demons: "there where thy grace appears, the power of the demons is pursued; for the fallen Lucifer cannot bear to see thy light. We pray thee then to extinguish his burning features, directed against us... and to free us from his temptations.
The icon shown here (Balkan, ca. 1600) is of the Archangel Michael. In his quality of Captain of the Hosts, the warrior angel wears a cloak which, on our icon , is red in color. The sword that he holds in his right hand is at the same time his weapon and the insignia of commander. In his left hand he carries before his breast an image of Jesus Christ. The head of the archangel is adorned with ribbons. Habitually, the ends of he ribbons flow from either side of the head: they should symbolize the spiritual hearing of the angel, attentive to the divine commands. On our icon these ribbons are partly effaced. The inscription at the top reads: "Archangel Michael."
From Meaning of Icons by Lossky, Palmer, and Kadloubousky

There are several icons of the Archangel Michael that he has personally intervened miraculously to the "authoring" of his image;

MichaelMantamados Icon
Archangel Michael of Mantamados (Gr. O Μανταμάδος) refers to a miraculous icon of the Archangel Michael on the island of Lesvos. The monastery is known locally as Taxiarches (the "Archangel"). There are two accounts surrounding the date of this icon, one having to do with the Ottoman Turkish occupation and destruction of 1462, and the other with Saracen pirates during the 9th and 10th centuries during which the entire island was invaded. In either case, the story of the creation of the icon shares the theme that the target of the raids was the monastery of the Taxiarchis. The pirates threatened the monks with death if they would not reveal the whereabouts of the hidden villagers. The monks refused and the invaders slaughtered all of the monks except for one novice-monk.
As the pirates where leaving, the novice climbed to the roof of the monastery to be sure that the pirates had left. However, the pirates noticed him from afar and returned to kill him as well. It is at this point in the story that the Archangel Michael makes his appearance in front of the Saracens with his own sword drawn forcing them to retreat in terror. Thanks to this miracle from the Archangel the monk survived and descending to the courtyard buried the bodies of his fellow brotherhood. The monk still in deep respect and reverence for having witnessed the Archangel Michael in all his fury, gathered up the earth that was red by the blood of the martyred monks and shaped it into the icon-sculpture of the Archangel as it is today; while it was still vivid in his memory. According to legend, the monk did not have enough of this dirt-blood mix and so the head of the Archangel has turned out disproportionately larger to the rest of his body.
This icon, is now kept within the interior of the church. Many islanders claim to have had personal experiences of miracles being granted for them by Mantamados.
This defies the traditional structure of iconography. His upper-torso is represented as a three-dimensional image mixed with dirt and blood of martyrs and he is a warrior. His face is alive and he will mirror the condition of your soul by the expression on his face.

MichaelPanormitis Icon
Symi island of the Dodecanese, Greece, is situated in southeast Aegean sea and northwest of Rhodes. While touring around the island you will see many churches and monasteries devoted to the Archangel Michael. The Greek Orthodox Monastery of Taxiarchis Mihail Panormitis is the most important on the island and second largest in the Dodecanese. In the church is the famous icon of the Archangel Michael Panormitis, who is not only considered the island's patron saint but also the guardian of sailors in the entire Dodecanese area. One story is that this icon appeared miraculously and, on several occasions, was removed only to reappear mysteriously in this same location. The church was then built over the location, which, other sources suggest, was also a template to Apollo.








In Russian iconography he is most likely to be wearing red. In many instances, Michael tramples the devil under his feet, which may be depicted as a dragon. This comes from the tradition that Michael was the main opponent of Satan in the battle for Heaven. Satan, previously called Samael, was always looking to discredit Israel, while Michael was its main protector. In the end, Satan attempted to drag Michael down in his fall from the heights, but Michael was rescued by God.

Miracle at Colossae or Chonae


Troparion (Tone 4) [1]
Commanders of the heavenly hosts,
we who are unworthy beseech you,
by your prayers encompass us beneath the wings of your immaterial glory,
and faithfully preserve us who fall down and cry to you:
"Deliver us from all harm, for you are the commanders of the powers on high!"

Kontakion (Tone 2) [2]
Commanders of God's armies and ministers of the divine glory,
princes of the bodiless angels and guides of mankind,
ask for what is good for us, and for great mercy,
supreme commanders of the Bodiless Hosts.

Rennes le Chateau-La Torre Magdala (FRANCIA)

Publicado: noviembre 9, 2010 en viajes


Qué hace que un cura de pueblo perdido y abandonado a su suerte se convirtiera en uno de los hombres más ricos del mundo?……. misterio, simplemente en tres años era un multimillonario y a las puertas de su parroquia puso una imagen del demonio sosteniendo la pila de agua bendita.

Y sigue la imagen de Asmodeo situada a la izquierda como es razonable pensar, de la puerta de entrada de la iglesia de Santa Magdalena. Cual era su misterio, cual su respuesta? Eso es lo que íbamos buscando.
Las tierras de Carcassone están situadas al sur de Francia, pocos habitantes, zona de viñedos, valles llenos de aves y también de nieves, arroyos que son el desagüe de la nieve caída en invierno, su origen nos lleva a las leyendas. En aquel comienzo estaba muy poblada, fueron los galos del sur, aquel pueblo celta que se estableció en la zona y nombró a Narbo como su capital (actualmente Narbona); después vinieron los visigodos hasta el año 475 y más tarde los moros hasta el 715. Algo de ellos queda en el camino, algunas torres de vigilancia y bellos pero casi destruidos castillos que sobresalen en las altas colinas. Diez siglo de historia, pero…

Comienzan los pueblos a dejar huellas, aquellos cátaros sostuvieron aquí en Montségur su última resistencia en 1244.

La antigua ciudad de Aereda famosa como Rhedae por los romanos, tenía en otros tiempos unos 30.000 hab. y su castillo guardaba la unión entre el río Aude y el Sals. Hoy es una aldea, con pocas casas que se apiñan en la misma calle; esto es Rennes le Chteau. El panorama estaba completado para hacer una trabajo de campo sobre el personaje. En 1885 a los 33 años, François Béranger Saunière fue nombrado cura de la pequeña iglesia de Santa Magdalena, medio abandonada y en ruinas, y donde se alzaba en lo más alto un palacio fortificado por los visigodos. Como otros sacerdotes, Saunière tomó a una joven, Marie Denarnaud, como ama de llaves y se instaló en Rennes-le-Cháteau sin pedir nada más.

Ya instalado en la parroquia el sacerdote se enteró que uno de sus predecesores había dejado un legado para el mantenimiento de la iglesia en 1892 y con ello restauró el altar mayor. El altar era un solo bloque de piedra de alguna columna antigua de la época visigoda, cuando levantaron el bloque se descubrió que estaba hueca, dentro había tres tubos de madera, sellados con cera que contenían pergaminos manuscritos. 

Algunas copias de estos pergaminos han llegado hasta nosotros. A primera vista no parecen ser más que transcripciones de pasajes conocidos del Nuevo Testamento, escritos en latín, con extraños caracteres de aspecto arcaico. El primero (Juan 12, 1-12) describe la visita de Cristo a Betania, a casa de Lázaro, Marta y María. El segundo es la historia de los discípulos recogiendo espigas de trigo en sábado, pero ha sido tomado de tres versiones diferentes, las de Mateo (12, 1-8), Marcos (2, 23-28) y Lucas (6, 1-5) [textualmente].

Cuando se hicieron las primera inspecciones se revelaron que los manuscritos tienen unos rasgos especiales, hay dibujos de monogramas, se han añadido algunas letras a los textos, hay puntos marcados, otros lugares están desplazados. Cosa que hizo inmediatamente pensar que habían sido manipulados por algún motivo en clave; aquí entraba el trabajo del criptógrafo que no encontró mucho trabajo para realizar su cometido.

A principios de 1893, Saunière llevó los manuscritos a su obispo monseñor Félix-Arséne Billard de Carcassonne y obtuvo autorización (y dinero) para ir inmediatamente a París. Allí entregó los documentos al abate Bieil, director de Saint-Sulpice, quien le presentó a su sobrino, el editor religioso Ané, en cuya casa se alojó Saunière mientras estuvo en París, y a Émile Hoffet, destinado a convertirse en una gran autoridad en manuscritos antiguos y sociedades secretas.

Saunière estuvo tres semanas en París. Pasó mucho tiempo en el Louvre, donde compró reproducciones de tres cuadros sin vinculación aparente entre sí: «Pastores de Arcadia» de Poussin, el «retrato de San Antonio» de Teniers y un retrato anónimo del papa San Celestino V. También entabló amistad con una celebridad parisina, Emma Calvé. La hermosa soprano estaba en la cumbre de su carrera. Durante muchos años fue íntima amiga de Saunière y lo visitó con regularidad hasta su boda (1914) con el tenor Gasbarri.

Cuando volvió a Rennes, Saunière continuó la restauración de la iglesia. Con la ayuda de algunos jóvenes del pueblo (uno de los cuales vivía aún en 1962 y proporcionó detalles valiosos sobre las actividades de su párroco), levantó otro bloque de piedra que se encontraba justamente delante del altar. La parte inferior del bloque estaba tallada en un estilo arcaico, que fue identificado como perteneciente a los siglos VI o VII. Se dice que debajo se encontraban dos esqueletos y un cuenco lleno de «medallones sin valor».
Hay dos escenas talladas en el bloque, que suceden en un edificio con arcos o en una cripta. La de la izquierda representa, según parece, a un caballero montado, tocando una trompeta de caza, mientras su caballo agacha la cabeza para beber de un manantial. La de la derecha es de otro caballero con una vara en una mano y, en la otra, o un niño en su arzón o un disco o esfera. La piedra está gastada y rota y es difícil identificar los temas con seguridad.

Saunière manifestó que eran medallones sin valor. Cuando recientemente se volvió a excavar en el mismo lugar se encontró una calavera con una hendidura ritual característica en el cráneo.

Después de este descubrimiento, los trabajos en la iglesia cesaron durante algún tiempo. En cambio, Saunière, acompañado por su ama de llaves Marie, se dedicó a recorrer los alrededores con un saco al hombro. Cada noche volvía con el saco lleno de piedras que había elegido cuidadosamente, y cuando se le preguntaba por la finalidad de sus excursiones replicaba que había decidido embellecer el jardín que había frente a la iglesia con una gruta de piedra. Ciertamente, la gruta sigue allí, aunque muy disminuida; ha sido saqueada, o por cazadores de souvenirs o por quienes esperaban que las piedras revelaran el secreto de Saunière.

 El curioso sacerdote tenía además otro pasatiempo; el cementerio de la iglesia contenía dos lápidas que marcaban la tumba de Marie de Negri d’Albes (muerta en 1781), esposa de Francis de Hautpoul, Señor de Rennes. Durante la noche, Saunière movió estas lápidas y borró pacientemente sus inscripciones: trabajo en vano, ya habían sido copiadas por arqueólogos itinerantes.

Durante los dos años siguientes, Béranger Saunière viajó mucho. Se sabe que abrió varias cuentas bancarias, en Perpiñán, Toulouse, París y hasta Budapest. Frecuentemente llegaban giros para Marie Denarnaud de Alemania, España, Suiza e Italia; aparentemente, algunos eran enviados por comunidades religiosas.

A partir de 1896, Saunière emprendió la restauración de la iglesia, cuyos resultados son los que pueden verse en la actualidad. El efecto del conjunto es extraordinario y estremecedor; se dispone diagonalmente donde se juntan nave y transepto, hay un suelo en forma de tablero de ajedrez compuesto por 64 baldosas cuadradas blancas y negras; junto a la puerta principal levantó un gran monumento de colores llamativos en el que la pila es sostenida por la cabeza de una figura de tamaño natural del demonio Asmodeo, mientras encima se levantan cuatro estatuas pequeñas de ángeles alados con la divisa «con este signo lo vencerás», una cita de la visión que provocó la conversión del emperador Constantino al cristianismo en el año 313.

Las paredes de la iglesia están cubiertas con pinturas en relieve sin ningún mérito artístico; hay un Vía Crucis un poco extraño y encima del confesionario, una representación de Cristo en el monte de los Olivos. El mismo Saunière pintó la imagen de María Magdalena que hay en el altar. Lo más extraño de todo es que sobre el portal de la iglesia están grabadas las palabras de Jacob en Bethel, pronunciadas la mañana siguiente a la visión de los ángeles que subían y bajaban por una escalera que llevaba al cielo: «Terribilis est locus iste» (Éste es un lugar terrible).

Cuando terminaron los trabajos en la iglesia, Saunière no abandonó su fiebre reconstructora. Compró el terreno que se extendía entre la iglesia y la ladera oeste de la colina. A lo largo de la cresta construyó un paseo semicircular y en el extremo sur de éste, una torre de dos pisos, la Torre Magdala. Dentro de la curva del paseo dispuso un jardín, y al final, separada de la iglesia por un pequeño patio, levantó una casa para huéspedes que llamó Betania.

Saunière pagó de su bolsillo todos estos trabajos. Y cuando Betania quedó terminada y amueblada con valiosas antigüedades, recibió huéspedes a quienes atendía como a reyes, con buenos vinos y abundante comida. Hubo visitas regulares de Emma Calvé, siempre que sus compromisos profesionales se lo permitían, y entre los huéspedes figuró también la secretaria de estado para las bellas artes, la escritora Andrée Bruguière, muchos notables de la zona y, de vez en cuando, de incógnito, un hombre de quien se decía que era el archiduque Juan de Habsburgo, primo del emperador de Austria.

Cuando Saunière murió en 1917 se calculaba que había gastado bastante más de un millón de francos de oro, que valían 20 veces más que los francos franceses. Después de su muerte y durante 36 años, hasta que falleció en 1953, Marie Denarnaud vivió como una reina y, en una carta escrita hacia 1920, estimó su propia fortuna en más de 100.000 francos.

Entre 1885 y 1893, Béranger Saunière dejó de ser el cura pobre de una parroquia miserable y se convirtió en un hombre enormemente rico y en uno de los derrochadores más extravagantes de la región. La prueba de sus gastos está allí, en sus tierras, en Renne le Cháteau a la vista de todos. Pero, ¿de dónde salieron las riquezas de Saunière?
