5The Cathedrals of Europe

Via: www.stuckincustoms.com

Before money centres ruled the world, it was the church, and they built the highest buildings in the land. Many cathedrals of medieval Europe were influenced by the Knights Templar, a wealthy group of warriors associated with the Catholic church. What is interesting to see is that within many of

these cathedrals are subtle dedications to the goddess and pagan traditions, something that had been ripped out of the heart of Catholicism. It is for this reason that stories of demons and occult worship were spread about this famous band of knights who seemed to hide higher mysteries that many in the Catholic church would have considered heretical at that time.

Most notable amongst these is Rosslyn Chapel, made famous by Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. Just a small collegiate church located a few miles outside of Edinburgh, this church withstood the furor of Henry VIII and the dissolution of the monasteries. It is a bible in stone, encompassing myths and symbolism from paganism, Norse mythology and more. It is just one of the many amazing cathedrals that contain symbolism associated with what is now known colloquially as the Illuminati. Hard to believe that anything so beautiful might have been built for evil purposes.
