Holy Blood, Holy Grail

Holy Blood, Holy Grail Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is the traditional, accepted view of the life of Christ in some way incomplete?

• Is it possible Christ did not die on the cross?

• Is it possible Jesus was married, a father, and that his bloodline still exists?

• Is it possible that parchments found in the South of France a century ago reveal one of the best-kept secrets of Christendom?

• Is it possible that these parchments contain the very heart of the mystery of the Holy Grail?

According to the authors of this extraordinarily provocative, meticulously researched book, not only are these things possible — they are probably true! so revolutionary, so original, so convincing, that the most faithful Christians will be moved; here is the book that has sparked worldwide controversey.

"Enough to seriously challenge many traditional Christian beliefs, if not alter them."

Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Like Chariots of the Gods?...the plot has all the elements of an international thriller."

Newsweek

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Explores the information uncovered in mysterious parchments unearthed in a small French church that reveal new insight into the mystery of the Holy Grail.

About the Author

Michael Baigent was born in New Zealand in 1948 and obtained a degree in psychology from Canterbury University. At one point he gave up a successful career in photojournalism to devote his time to researching the Templars for a film project. Since 1976 he has lived in England.

Richard Leigh is a novelist and short-story writer with postgraduate degrees in comparative literature and a thorough knowledge of history, philosophy, psychology, and esoterica. He has been working for some years as a university lecturer in the United States, Canada, and Britain.

Henry Lincoln is an author and filmmaker and has written for television.
