Everything begins and ends with the anagram - that is the hub of everything. The rest follows. You need the anagram FIRST. Who cares by what means De Cherisey converted the letters and planted them into the Latin text --- merely reversing the encoding technique to arrive back to the message that is the anagram that includes the all-important Plantard PS PRAECUM
You try doing it.
Try and construct 'Bergere pas de tentation Poussin Teniers gard le clef' etc from the anagram alone. The words Poussin and Teniers and Cheval de Dieu will be particularly difficult to guess at using the anagram alone. The successive coding stages arranges the letters into the correct order.
PS PRAECUM merely makes the code work, it's meaningless otherwise.
However MORT EPEE does appear to have some meaning that is relevant.
As he said Philippe de Cherisey WAS the author of BERGERE PAS DE TENTATION etc. i.e. He was the author of the SOLUTION to the code and tried to protect his discovery through an injunction. He was NOT however the author of the original code and he has NEVER admitted this.
He has failed to explain what AD GENESARETH means.
Ladies and Gentleman this has been a reasoned argument production
