Sample text

Dans la salle des Soufflets, dite aussi du Ser­ pent d’airain, l’attendaient comme autant de co­ lonnes tourbillonnant sur elles-mêmes avec plus ou moins de lenteur, selon leurs dignités res­ pectives : le Commandeur, le Visiteur de l’Ordre et le Sénéchal. Au fond de cette salle, une croix — qui, sans offrir la figure du Sauveur, n’avait gardé que la couronne d’épines et les quatre clous de sa passion — surmontait une immense cheminée; là, deux Frères servants dont les tourbillons zélés affectaient l’aspect de bras aux manches retroussées, déjà se disposaient à saisir les poignées d’un double soufflet dont les sou­ papes de peau, tels d’énormes testicules, enga­ gées sous la hotte de la cheminée, en masquaient le conduit; au niveau de l’âtre reposait sur les braises assoupies une longue et sinueuse forme en fer creux, le Serpent d'airain de Moïse, que, disait-on, Saladin avait fait remettre jadis au Grand Maître Roncelin.

Sans doute, — pendant qu’il cédait à l’attrait de l’île, disparue avec le bûcher évaporé de son sup­ plice —, du bord de ces rives quelque souffle, aussi maléfique que son bruissement était suave, l’avait suivi, cherchant à le circonvenir dans sa tristesse : celui-ci imitait les modulations de la sainte qu’il avait pensé d’abord reconnaître. Et, se sentant pris de vitesse, il cria : — Jamais aucun des Bienheureux, pour peu qu’il l’eût voulu, n’eût seulement pu détacher son regard de la face de Dieu!

Le Baphomet 59 — O présomption des Docteurs qui nous dé clarent à jamais fixés dans le souverain Bien! S’il est la fin de notre vouloir sa vision ne nous prive point de notre volonté comme les viles jouissances : Celui qui me comble accroît d’au­ tant ma conscience de ceux qui jamais ne ver­ raient sa face ! O insoutenable félicité pour l’in­ telligence que Dieu ne veut briser! Dieu seul en moi s’oppose à Dieu! La brise qui avait porté ces accents s’était enflée en une telle rafale que son propre souffle fut rejeté sur le chemin de ronde de sa forte­ resse : le vent y était intenable^ il semblait qu’elle-même hurlant dans les frondaisons de la forêt environnante revînt battre le flanc des tours et siffler par les meurtrières.
