Novum Lateo Hominis

Hook

Lateo hominis nos habitum specialis
ex Sarcalogos quod thesaurus ex Jerusalem
(and simultaneously in sympathetic counter melody)
Mica est vestri quod nos
mos locus rex Jerusalem

1
Mille nonaginta, novum jerusalem fueram socius
in atrum mos suum specialis no
Ut nullus alius cruor nos mos locutus
quod Pope quisnam directus intentio exsisto quondam

Hook

2
Cruor ex Sarcalogos quondam sileo ops Suffragium
ex magdelene ut merovingian
Cruor ut mos iterum dico tripudio
ex novus constructum templum ex solomon

Hook

3
Evestigatus eram regius incruentus
frater Ursus perdu cos nos ut sententia
Is quisnam mos sanctus terra excolo
quod sceptrum per vis vox vocis ex deus

Hook

4
Secundum vicis specialis eram expositus
ex sanctus mica etiam seputus profundus
Ut reperio is praemium est tempero orbis terrarum
quod spolium ex denique bellum ut servo

Hook

5
Quod per mica lemma mos specialis reperio
opulentia ultra duco mos adeo lemma
Quod majores ex templum superstes secundum
rex regis ops Jerusalem

Nine Unknown Men

Hook

Unknown men we hold the secrets
of the christ and treasures of Jerusalem
(and simultaneously in sympathetic counter melody)
The Grail is yours and we will
place the king in Jerusalem

1
Ten, nine, nine, jerusalem had fell
in hoods and robes their secrets made
That none other than "The Blood" they would tell
and the Pope who deemed the plans be laid

Hook

2
Blood of the christ once rested in France
from the Magdelene to the Merovingian
Blood that will once more call the dance
from the new built temple of solomon

Hook

3
Discovered was the royal bloodline
brother Ursus led us to the choice
He who would the holy land refine
and rule with the force of God's own voice

Hook

4
Eventually the secret was unfurled
of the holy grail still buried deep
To find this prize is to control the world
and the spoils of the final war to keep

Hook

5
And with the ark they would secrets find
riches beyond count would come to them
And the elders of the church standing behind
the power of the king in Jerusalem

Hook and out

The following account is from a website whose name escapes me and was part of the research for this piece. If the original author lets me know the website address I will be happy to give a credit for the information. Alternatively, if the original author wants it taken down I will do so.

1099, immediately after the capture of Jerusalem, a group of anonymous figures convened in a secret conclave. The identity of this group has eluded all historical inquiry - although Guillaume of Tyre, writing three quarters of a century later, reports that the most important of them was 'a certain bishop from Calabria.' In any case, the purpose of the conclave was clear - to elect a King of Jerusalem."

This is a parallel, in 1099, to the legend given about Theoclet.

"It is known that in 1070, twenty-nine years before the First Crusade, a specific band of monks from Calabria in Southern Italy arrived in the vicinity of the Ardennes Forest, part of Godfroi de Bouillon's domains. According to Gérard de Sède this band of monks was led by an individual called Ursus - a name the 'Prieuré documents' consistently associate with the Merovingian bloodline. On their arrival in the Ardennes the Calabrian monks obtained the patronage of Mathilde de Toscan, duchess of Lorraine - who was Godfroi de Bouillon's aunt and, in effect, foster mother. From Mathilde the monks received a tract of land at Orval, not far from Stenay, where Dagobert II had been assassinated some five hundred years earlier. Here an abbey was established to house them. Nevertheless they did not remain at Orval very long. By 1108 they had mysteriously disappeared, and no record of their whereabouts survives. Tradition says they returned to Calabria. Orval, by 1131, had become one of the fiefs owned by St. Bernard. "Before their departure from Orval, however, the Calabrian monks may have left a crucial mark on Western history. According to Gérard de Sède, at least, they included the man subsequently known as Peter the Hermit....."
