|When one goes down from the Mont St Odile on the West side while following the way if the pilgrims, one emerges, after 200 meters passed under the beautiful ones and large trees, on a vast clearing whose cannot suspect the existence if one remains with the monastery.|
It's here that
at the beginning of the century last Robert Forrer, famous archaeologist,
would have made a disconcerting discovery. Below the grossmatt at the
place even where one enjoys the most beautiful sight on the roofs of the
monastery, an accumulation of small parallelepiped sandstone stones of
form draw its attention.
One should even the archaeologist to have invented itself this history to make oneself important. The small stones are besides visible with the archaeological museum of Strasbourg. A present nobody could confirm or canner anything. The secrecy remains...
would allow myself to add a stone (even several) to this mystery. In deed
when one moves more towards the West still, night before penetration in
the forest, one notice strange rocks distributed between large oaks. A
kind of sandy chaos without much importance. But while there looking at
more closely one believes (I believe) these to detect a certain alignment,
delimiting an East-West alley directed towards 10 meters. Strange all
the same these rocks which one meets only at this place. There is of in
no other elsewhere in trimmings. And why thus pseudo alignment? Would
this be the remainder of an old temple, an appendix of temple?
I don't have any element
to work out a thesis. What is astonishing is that null mention as of
these blocks of sandstone doesn't appear in the literature. Perhaps
that if archaeologists don't say anything of it, it's that there's nothing
to say. There but I advice with the reader to go to throw an eye, it
will be able to have an idea by itself.
