Ben Hammott's research into the Rennes-le-Chateau Stations of the Cross 8 & 9

 

Comparison of the Stations of the Cross in Sauniere's Mary Magdalene church to those Stations of the Cross in other Churches said by some to be the same.

List of Churches used in this comparison are:

The Mary Magdalene church at Rennes-le-Chateau.

Rocamadour.

Couiza.

Station of the Cross 8 Comparison

Jesus speaks to the women of Jerusalem

Rennes-le-Chateau Station 8       Couiza Station of the Cross 8

There are many similarities in these two stations but the changes Sauniere made include:

6 figures instead of 10.  The red robe worn by Jesus has been enlarged to cover one of the figures he had removed but curiously he left in the leg.

Rocamadour Station of the Cross 8        Rennes-le-Chateau Station 8

The three figures on the right in the Rocamadour station are very similar to the equally position three figures in the Couiza station 8. Though these are similar at first glance, these two stations are very different.

Station of the Cross 9 Comparison

Jesus falls for the third time.

Rennes-le-Chateau Station 9       Couiza Station of the Cross 9

The difference in the number of figures appearing in these two Stations are obvious. Clothing of Jesus is different. Other than this they are very similar.

Rocamadour Station of the Cross 9       Rennes-le-Chateau Station 9

Again there are differences in the amount of figures, but the Rocamadour Station is a better match with the Rennes-le-Chateau Station.
