Priory of Sion

"The Priory of Sion was founded in Jerusalem in 1099 by a French king named Godefroi de Bouillon, immediately after he conquered the city."
Robert Langdon, The Da Vinci Code p. 157

Priory of Sion

Consider This: The Journal Officiel de la République Française records the Priory of Sion as beginning in May of 1956 when it registered with the French government as a new organization.

Consider This: According to CBS News, the name for the organization does not originate in Jerusalem, but in a local landmark south of Annemasse - a hill called 'Mont Sion'.

"The identities of living Priory members are kept extremely secret."
Robert Langdon, The Da Vinci Code p. 113

Priory of Sion

Consider This: When the Priory registered with the French government in 1956, it put the names of its four living members on the record: Pierre Plantard, André Bonhomme, Jean Delaval, and Amand Defago.

Consider This: The articles submitted on formation of the Priory state that its members are to "carry out good deeds, [and] to help the Catholic Church."

"The Priory's membership has included some of history's most cultured individuals: men like Botticelli, Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo and Leonardo Da Vinci."
Robert Langdon, The Da Vinci Code p. 113

Priory of Sion

Consider This: The Les Dossiers Secrets documents containing the names of the supposed Grand Masters have been found to be forgeries.

Consider This: in 1993 Pierre Plantard admitted in a French court under oath that he had made up the entire Priory story. Chérisey had also admitted their story was false.

Consider This: There is no mention of this organization in any historical document until after 1956.
