Thirty eight portrait by nicholas. Bussan entitled the arcadian shepherds the painting depicts four. People gathered around a rural tomb on the grave is a plaque that says et in arcadia ego. Meaning even in arcadia there. My sonia was certain there was a connection between the parchment the painting and the town of reynolds chateau although what that link was remained uncertain for decades. But this purchase wasn't the priests only mysterious move. When he returned to ren lucia to-. Sonia made a note of another meeting in his diary. It was between himself. The secretary to monsignor vr and antoine jellies a priest from a nearby town. The only thing he wrote in that journal alongside the date and names was the word secret around the same time soon year employed his close friend and former roommate marie dinar no as his housekeeper. Aside from monsignor biard marine was sonia's sole confidant. The two were constantly seen in each other's company. To the point where other townspeople called her the priests madonna. It's very possible that the two had a romantic relationship during this time.

Sonia also had a sign placed above the church entrance that reads. Terry bolus s locus east day. Latin for this is a place of awe or this place is terrible. It was ominous allusions like these that have led some conspiracy theorists to believe that so near new. A dangerous hits about the catholic church but it wasn't just his lavish changes to the property that kept the locals.
