In the early 1800s in Paris, the physician Bernard-Raymond Fabré-Palaprat discovered (or claimed to discover, or was led to believe he discovered) a secret Gnostic tradition that stretched back in time to the medieval Templars and then even further back to John the Baptist, Jesus, and John the Evangelist.
To talk to us about both Palaprat and the Johannite tradition we’re joined by Bishop Shaun McCann, Patriarch of the Apostolic Johannite Church and…hey that’s the church that sponsors this show! And the one that Jon and Jason are in!! And that’s why this is a great ep as the Bishop Shaun, with the help of Jason’s penetrating questions, illustrates why this tradition is a living reality and why a French heretic doctor still matters 200 years later.
This is part 1 of 2 and we’re hoping to do more on the topic….
