In the 4th Century AD the treasure of Jerusalem and Rome was stolen by the Visigoths and taken to France. By the 11th century it had become the treasure of the Cathars. When the Church of Rome initiated a Crusade to root out Cathar heretics the treasure disappeared and was never seen again. Many people believe it is still waiting to be found.
