Eva and I have discovered a major energy line running more or less E-W across the Czech Republic. We first came across it at Jindrichuv Hradec, where both it’s pairs as well as a third line cross at the Church of John the Baptist, now part of the museum. Subsequently, we also found it just outside Telč and also passing through Třebič. We then managed to pick up one of the pair just outside of Brno and again at Nová Řisé.
The lines are both around 90 paces thick and I was able to prove the lines at Třebič where they cross inside the St. Procopius Basilica. We also found the lines crossing on a hill outside of Telč where a more recent church was built – The church of John of Nepomuk at Krahluči.
The Basilica at Třebič almost certainly has a Templar connection though again, the official history doesn’t mention them. The church, initially dedicated to the Virgin Mary, was built in the early 13th century as a part of the Benedictine Monastery founded in 1101. The basilica’s Romanesque style shows also some Gothic elements. The church was largely damaged when Třebič was besieged by Matthias Corvinus´ army in 1468, and was then used for secular purposes for more than two centuries. After its renovation by František Maxmilian Kanka in 1725-1731 it was used again for sacral purposes and dedicated to St. Procopius.
It is built on the site of a wooden church dating back to the 11th Century. There are records of connections between the Templar Commander Ekko and the head of the Benedictine Monastery. The church also seems to have a number of architectural and decorative aspects that suggest Templar influence as well. These include angel windows, some 14th Century artwork on the wall that is again suggestive of nature, sound cymatics and Templar crosses. The basement also features stonemason markings and pillars of various designs.
We managed to trace the two lines in the pair through the town to the outskirts in the westerly direction and some distance into the town in an easterly direction.
I had identified the so-called Templar Tower in Telč as the next possible place for a line crossing. I was wrong. We found no energy lines near that location but did fond one of the pair passing through another church in the town – St. James the Great. The age of the church, whose tower is a prominent feature of Telč, is not exactly known. Some estimates suggest the end of the 13th century (1273) but the oldest documented mention is the existence of the rectory and school in 1372. There is also evidence of a fire in 1386, which destroyed a number of houses and the parish church. Another parish priest for St. James did not appear in historical documents until 1417.
The next crossing we found on a hill outside of Telč. There was located the Baroque church dedicated to St. Anthony of the Fair Jan Nepomucký. This happened before the canonization of the Czech patron (19 January 1729). The church was consecrated on July 4, 1729 by their relative, the titular bishop Jakub Arnošt Liechtenstein, a canon in Olomouc. The hill however looks to have had a longer past and has a stone formation on it that speak to older times.
We will continue to map these two lines across by filling in the gaps and then moving east and west. We have already found one of the lines passing through the Monastery at Nová Řiše, south of Telč, over the top of Velká Baba outside of Brno and several other places.
Interestingly, Rory Duff thinks this is a new line from his perspective and is excited about crossings in France as this line extends across that country. It seems to be on an Azimuth that would take it to La Rochelle – another Templar location.
Was this line known by the Templars? It seems to us that it was.
