In their chronicle of the fascinating quest for truth through time and space, the authors present an astonishing new view of the real motives and character of the Christian Church recently made known to a wide audience through The Da Vinci Code, including

•The actual historical – and revelatory – role of Mary Magdalene who was not a prostitute, as is commonly believed, but the wife of Jesus
•The shocking idea that John the Baptist was a rival of Jesus who founded a substantial movement that continues to exist today
•The existence of a secret society called the Priory of Sion that continues to preserve these ancient secrets of the early Christian Church
The Templar Revelation discloses all this and much more, telling the story of a secret history preserved through the centuries but encoded in works of art that will dazzle the reader and shed new light on the foundation of the Christian Church.

In this remarkable achievement of historical detective work that explains the mysterious background of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Da Vinci Code, authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince delve deep into the mysterious worlds 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.

A detailed study of the Templars, part of which the authors persued in Rennes-le-Château country, challenged conventional Christianity with its implication that John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene were more imporant than Jesus in the history of Christianity, and that these two saints laid a foundation that Jesus followed, not initiated. Impossible? Then read the book and reach your own conclusions.
