For this article we borrow the Latin title used for two paintings by Nicolas Poussin. He is the artist that the authors of Holy Blood Holy Grail and The DaVinci Code believe had been in league with the Priory of Sion.
"Les Bergers d'Arcadia" (The Shepherds of Arcadia II")
by Nicolas Poussin, c. 1638-1640
It portrays shepherds looking at a tomb and a shepherdess that looks pregnant. The three shepherds are looking and pointing to the inscription et in Arcadia ego. (1)
"The Greeks referred to Arcadia as a Utopia. It had shepherds that watched over the fields and tended the flocks in harmony with nature. Arcadia of Peloponnesus was the domain of Pan, the virgin wilderness home of the god of the forest and his court of dryads, nymphs and other spirits of nature. It was a version of paradise, though only in the sense of being the abode of supernatural entities, not an afterlife for deceased mortals." (2)
I decided to go to Arcadia, Missouri to see if I could find some shepherds and shepherdesses. I found them too. Arcadia, Missouri is a small town about 78 miles from St Louis. John Smith said that Missouri was the Garden of Eden and Arcadia is the place of fertile farmlands and rushing springs. Many French settlers came there and farmed the land. There is a Ursuline Academy for Girls which has closed but the owners still have weddings and events in Saint Joseph’s chapel. The school was originally a Methodist school but the sisters bought the land and established a girl school. The Ursulines were a French order and I ran across their school in New Orleans. I wrote a article on the similarities of Saint Louis Cathedral in New Orleans.
I’m following the French settlers church’s and am finding some interesting coincidences. I also believe that the French Arcadians forced from their homes in Nova Scotia and Canada from the French and British Indian wars brought the legend that a holy bloodline existed.
The location represented by the longitude and latitude 37° 35° 13° N, 90° 37° 40° W is Arcadia Missouri and its symbolism in the coordinates representing 3 and 7 are the two pillars of the Temple of Solomon Joachim and Boaz. The Pillars indicate a secret and sacred place. About 969 BC Solomon built a great temple to house the Ark of the Covenant. Notice 37 is on the North and 37 is in the West - they are two pillars. Thirty seven is a prime number which makes it a very special. There are 37 genes in most animals mitochondrial DNA. The Freemasons in their temples usually have Boaz represent the female energy of the moon, darkness, and passive while Joachim is the light, male, and aggressive. It is amazing that a Ursuline Academy for girls was placed in this little town but perhaps it was placed here because the ground had positive energy of which the French Freemasons were aware of.
