Templar Lore


Holy Blood, Holy Grail – by Michael Baigent, Henry Lincoln, Richard Leig

This is the one that started the whole thing off. It began as a simple investigation into the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau and how an ostensibly impoverished rustic priest, Bérenger Saunière, became rich seemingly overnight. So poor he had to conduct renovations on his rustic parish church himself, he appears to have discovered something hidden in a pillar dating back to Visigothic times that supported the altar. Trips to Paris followed soon after and Bernard Saunières was suddenly a very wealthy man. What did he find ?

Enter the Priory of Sion, an eminence gris that would figure hugely as the formerly localised mystery went global. This shady organisation contacted the authors on several occasions and put obscure hints and clues (or were they red herrings) in their path.

Claiming to be an off-shoot of The Knights Templar and the guardians of a secret that could rock the Christian world to its very foundations, the information provided by these people would take the authors on a roller-coaster ride of investigation and discovery, leading them to a startling conclusion.

And would it be capable of shaking the Christian world to its very foundations. Oh yes. You bet !
