BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL
Baigent, Henry Lincoln, and Richard Leigh, (authors of The Messianic
Legacy), spent over 10 years on their own kind of quest for the
Holy Grail, into the secretive history of early France.
What they found, researched with the tenacity and attention to
detail that befits any great quest, is a tangled and intricate story
of politics and faith that reads like a mystery novel.
It is the story of the Knights Templar, and a behind-the-scenes
society called the Prieure de Sion, and its involvement in reinstating
descendants of the Merovingian bloodline into political power.
Why? The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail assert that their explorations
into early history ultimately reveal that Jesus may not have died
on the cross, but lived to marry and father children whose bloodline
continues today. The authors' point here is not to compromise or
to demean Jesus, but to offer another, more complete perspective
of Jesus as God's incarnation in man.
The power of this secret, which has been carefully guarded for
hundreds of years, has sparked much controversy. For all the sensationalism
and hoopla surrounding Holy Blood, Holy Grail and the alternate
history that it outlines, the authors are careful to keep their
perspective and sense of skepticism alive in its pages, explaining
carefully and clearly how they came to draw such combustible conclusions.
