Station of the Cross 14 Comparison

Jesus is buried in the tomb.

Rennes-le-Chateau Station 14      Couiza Station of the Cross 14

When I first visited the Couiza Church and saw its Station 14 I thought they were exactly the same, apart from the three crosses on the hillside, it was only when I compared the two side by side I realised they were different. The men carrying Jesus into the tomb are completely different. The woman on the left in the background has also changed. The rocks have also been changed, perhaps to depict somewhere around Rennes-le-Chateau. Saunière has also added a moon. Some have said it is not a moon but a setting sun, if this was true surly Sauniere would have used different. colours to indicate this.

Rocamadour Station 14

Rocamadour Station bears no resemblance to the Rennes-le-Chateau Station.



We now know that the Stations of the Cross that appear in Saunieres Rennes-le-Chateau church are not the same as any other church found to date. Though they have almost certainly been taken from the same molds as the Couiza Stations of the Cross, Sauniere has made certain changes to the ones he placed in his Mary Magdalene church. His motive must have been to portray a certain message. Maybe as the legend suggests they are some kind of treasure map or clues leading to a great secret he discovered. The only way we will ever know if this is true is if someone manages to decipher the clues successfully, discovers whatever has been hidden and then reveals it to the world.
