The model of the abbe Sauniere
Approximately ten years ago, a model appeared in the history of Rennes the Castle.
Indeed shortly before his death the abbot Sauni?re ordered between 1 and on January 21st, 1916 a foundry of the region of Aix en Provence, the realization of a model of which he has by several mails brought by the topographic indications. The only element presented as a "proof" that the priest ordered well this object is an extract of letter in which he communicates to the foundry  the last modification to be brought:

This model was discovered by a bargain hunter of the region of Lyon in a factory of disused foundry. The factory that must be demolished, this secondhand goods dealer asked to empty the factory, would have found a model in plaster, accompanied with diverse letters contained in an envelope.

These letters were sent to a certain B?renger Sauni?re, a priest of a small village of the South of France, Rennes the Castle. 

Lent to Jean-Luc Robin, manager at the time of the museum to Rennes-Le-Ch?teau " The Domain of the Abbot "where the model was exposed for 3 years.

This molding would be the relief representation of a place and would summarize the last information detained by the priest who would so have represented a precise place of the region " Opoul-P?rillos " in the Pyr?n?es Orientales (France).

It is about a representation, in volume, of a well defined geographical portion. The set in plaster of modelling is dyed so as to feign a skated bronze. The base encircling the landscape is formed by four small boards of wood painted in brown surrounding perfectly the realization. The perimeter is the one of a light trapeze. (Official lists in millimeters: L1: 600, L2: 607, L1: 395, L2: 424; label cartridge: 132 X 94; height of the wooden frame: 55 on the whole perimeter; the highest point of the relief: 140 approximately).
It contains inscriptions (Golgotha Mountain of the Calvary - Garden of Geths?mani - Grave of the Christ - Grave of Joseph d' Arimathie - tank) and one cartridge (The Calvary and the Holy Sepulchre - primitive State). No indication of orientation is visible.
