Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The magical history of the Ring Lords, alluded to in J.R.R. Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings, has been largely consigned to legend and half-remembered battles between good and evil. Shrouded in supernatural enigma, its legacy lives on in fascinating tales of fairies, elves, witches, and vampires.

The most popular Grail stories relate to Arthurian tales of Guinevere’s golden Ring and the great iron-clad Ring of Camelot—the Knights of the Round Table. When this Ring was broken, the land fell into chaos and the forces of darkness reigned over the earth, starlight, and forest.

Why do we sense deeper truths behind the mysteries of the Ring and the Grail? Why have their common enhancements been distorted and hidden?

The ancient guardians of our culture have never featured positively in academic teachings, for they were the Shining Ones: the real progenitors of our heritage. Instead, their reality was quashed from the earliest days of Inquisitional suppression and the literal diminution of their figures caused a parallel diminishing of their history. In truth, however, the sovereign legacy of our culture comes from a place and time that might just as well be called Middle-earth as by any other name. It lingers beyond the twilight portal in the long distant realm of the Ring Lords.

Synopsis:

The Ring Quest has a history that dates far back into the mists of time — beyond the pyramids of Egypt and the walls of Babylon. It has lived on through the era of the pagan gods and has seen the rise of Buddha, Christ, and Mohammed. Remarkably, its traditions and allegories remain alive and intact to this day, evoking the mythic imagery of the distant past.<P>New in paperback, Realm of the Ring Lords exposes the magical world — and historical fact — behind the grail and ring legends. In the course of this breathtaking exploration, Gardner demonstrates the historical truths and significance behind much of European folklore and fairy tales — ranging from Dracula to Santa Claus, from Robin Hood to Lorna Doone, and the Grail quest to the Lord of the Rings. Most important, he demonstrates how these basic themes have consistently represented the best and brightest aspirations of humanity.
