The Sacred Feminine

"Powerful men in the early church 'conned' the world by propagating lies that devalued the female and tipped the scales in favor of the masculine."
Robert Langdon, The Da Vinci Code p.124

The Sacred Feminine

Consider This: Throughout history, there is record of women being oppressed and devalued across many cultures.  This has also occurred in the name of Christianity.

When we see atrocities in the church's history, the tendency is to discount Christianity as a whole.  These ugly parts of history, rather than showing Christianity to be oppressive, actually point to the reality of the human condition--which is that all people are prone to taking truth and twisting it to serve their own purposes.

Consider This: In spite of the dark parts of church history, there is also a great deal of light.  The Advent of Christianity radically transformed the fate of women. Even ancient Roman pagan scholars agree that it was a turning point for the freedom and dignity of women.

"Constantine and his male successors successfully converted the world from matriarchal paganism to patriarchal Christianity by waging a campaign of propaganda that demonized the sacred feminine."
Robert Langdon, The Da Vinci Code p.124

The Sacred Feminine 

Consider This: Despite the power and pressure of a male-dominated culture, Jesus valued women.  He encouraged women to learn from his teaching, and went out of his way to have conversations with women--to the extent that he was criticized for this.

Consider This: Historically, Christian women have been powerful supporters of Jesus' message, often despite their status in male-governed cultures.  Examples evident in the Bible include: Priscilla and Phoebe, while extra-biblical examples include: Perpetua of Carthage, Monica of Hippo, Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Katherina von Bora (Martin Luther's wife), Catherine Booth (founder of the Salvation Army) and Mother Teresa.

"According to these unaltered gospels, it was not Peter to whom Christ gave directions with which to establish the Christian Church. It was Mary Magdalene."
Sir Leigh Teabing, The Da Vinci Code p.248

The Sacred Feminine 

Consider This: The Gnostic gospel of Thomas, to which the book refers, records Jesus as wanting to transform Mary Magdalene into a man to make her acceptable to enter heaven.

"The Priory [of Sion's] membership has included some of history's most cultured individuals: men like Botticelli, Sir Isaac Newton, victor Hugo... and Leonardo Da Vinci... The Priory has a well documented history of reverence for the sacred feminine."
Robert Langdon, The Da Vinci Code p.113

The Sacred Feminine 

Consider This: The modern Priory of Sion was created in 1956 by Pierre Plantard. All documents "proving" a blood line and a list of historical Priory members were proven to be forged in a French court of law.
