About this product
- SynopsisTHE MOST CLOSELY GUARDED SECRET OF THE WESTERN WORLD IS ABOUT TO BE REVEALED -- AND YOU WILL NEVER SEE CHRISTIANITY IN THE SAME LIGHT AGAIN. In a remarkable achievement of historical detective work that is destined to become a classic, authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince delve into the mysterious world of the Freemasons, the Cathars, the Knights Templar, and the occult to discover the truth behind an underground religion with roots in the first century that survives even today. Chronicling their fascinating quest for truth through time and space, the authors reveal an astonishing new view of the real motives and character of the founder of Christianity, as well as the actual historical -- and revelatory -- roles of John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene. Painstakingly researched and thoroughly documented, The Templar Revelation presents a secret history, preserved through the centuries but encoded in works of art and even in the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe, whose final chapter could shatter the foundation of the Christian Church.

So Many Theories So Little Time
After reading The Da Vini Code, I started reading other books about Jesus and The Holy Grail. This book, The Templar Revelation by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince is quite a page turner. If you are into conspiriacies you'll love this book, some of the theories are so off the hook it made my head spin and my stomach turn! Like for example the idea that Jesus and John the Baptist may have been rivals, The Knights Templar may have worshipped some pagan god named Baphomet, and that the Knights Templar and Masons worship John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene over Jesus! Just to list a few of the off the hook theories. Oh wait I forgot the one about Mary Magdalene possibly being a priestess in an Isis Cult and Jesus being initiated into the High Magick mysteries by her! Its a fun read for people who don't take their Christian roots all too seriously. But I can see how its totally offensive to those who do. In the end they come to no real conclusions just a lot of crazy theories. Read full review

The Templar Revelation by C. Prince and L. Picknett
This book is not for the weak hearted. Its 369 pages of story and small print will take you a while to read and the contents will make you reconsider all you have ever heard and learned about three of the more well known religious figures of history: John the Baptist, Jesus and Mary Magdalene. What you read on these three may sound far fetched, but the 32 pages of endnotes and references give the book a sense of validity not seen in other books like this. The research that is woven into the book show it took more than just a few months for the two authors to write and while you may not accept all that they put on the pages, they come up with a very interesting view of our world's Christian church history and how it was written by the victors (in this case the later church fathers and those with a purpose to obtain). I have recommended the book to a few friends, it retails for $15.00. I picked it up new for about $10. The book contains a mere 6 pages of black and white pictures, but a wealth of information that you will be thinking or talking about for a while.

The True origins of "The Da Vinci Code"!
If we look back before the success of the da vinci code, we will be left with two books, The Templar Revelation and Holy Blood/Holy Grail.This book the Templar Revelation started the whole bandwagon/ball rolling when it coems to the hidden meanings and codes within Da Vinci's artwork and the subsequent theories concerning Jesus+Mary Magdalene being married and then having children, namely a daughter named Sarah/Sara. As you read thru this page turner with a better appreciation toward unconventional ideas concerning Christian Dogma and religious persicution you will come to appreciate Picknett+Prince's research and travels to unconver/unravel the truth about what we still call "myths" concerning Jesus-John the Baptist-Simon Magus and our now cultural and politically correct princess Mary Magdalene. This book is an essential read if you are into anything concerning the Da Vinci Code,l or for that matter, the REAL authors of the Da Vinci Code, 5 stars ***** Read full review
