The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail

(from Wikipedia) The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (retitled Holy Blood, Holy Grail in the United States) is a controversial non-fiction book by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln, which was based on Pierre Plantard's Priory of Sion hoax.

The book was initially published in 1982 by Jonathan Cape in London. The book was a follow up of the BBC TV documentary. There was a sequel to the book called The Messianic Legacy, in 1987. It was reissued in an illustrated hardcover adaptation in 2005. One of the books, based on the authors, which influenced the project was L'Or de Rennes (later re-published as Le Trésor Maudit), a 1967 book by Gérard de Sède.

In summary, the authors argue that there is evidence that Jesus wedded Mary Magdalene, had 1 or even more youngsters, and that those youngsters or their descendents emigrated to what exactly is today southern France. Once there, they intermarried with all the noble families that would eventually become the Merovingian dynasty, that is championed now by a secret society called the Priory of Sion.

An global bestseller upon its launch, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail spurred interest in a amount of inspirations associated to its central thesis. Response from mainstream historians and academics, yet, was almost universally damaging. Critics argued that the bulk of the claims, historic mysteries and conspiracy theories presented as truth, are pseudohistorical.

The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail details the authors' research of the alleged mysteries of the village of Rennes-le-Château in southern France dating within the 1950s.

After a decade of analysis and speculation, Baigent, Leigh, and Lincoln came to the following conclusions:
Poussin's Et in Arcadia ego qualities prominently in the authors' quest
Poussin's Et in Arcadia ego qualities prominently in the authors' quest

* There is a secret society recognised as Priory of Sion that has a lengthy and illustrious history dating back to the First Crusade beginning with all the creation of the Knights Templar as its military and financial front. The purchase is led by a Grand Master or Nautonnier. 

* It is dedicated to returning the Merovingian dynasty, that ruled the Frankish kingdom from 447 to 751 AD, to the thrones of Europe and Jerusalem. 

* The purchase protects these royal claimants because they is the literal descendants of Jesus and his spouse, Mary Magdalene, or, at the especially least, of King David and High Priest Aaron. 

* The Roman Catholic Church tried to kill off all remnants of the dynasty and their guardians, the Cathars and the Templars, during the Inquisition, in purchase to keep energy through the apostolic succession of Peter rather of the hereditary succession of Mary Magdalene. 

These authors further asserted that the best goals of the Priory of Sion are:

* the founding of the "Holy European Empire" that would become the upcoming hyperpower and usher in a brand-new planet purchase of peace and prosperity;
* the establishment of the messianic secret state religion by telling the Holy Grail, which would confirm Ebionite views and Desposyni claims; and
* the grooming and installing of the "Rex Deus" pretender found on the throne of the Greater Israel. 


About the court case against Da Vinci Code Author Dan Brown:

from The Telegraph (uk) 

Jesus conspiracy novel has earned £140 million, but today 2 educational writers state that their famous function preceded it by 20 years, reports Elizabeth Day

It is the biggest-selling adult fiction book of all time and has earned its writer a reputed £140 million with its plot about a international conspiracy to suppress Christ's wedding.

The Da Vinci Code has sold over 12 million duplicates and has been translated into 42 languages. But today 2 writers are suing its publishers, claiming that it was copied from their bestseller that initially appeared over 20 years ago.

Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh claim that Dan Brown, the 39-year-old previous English instructor from New Hampshire, has "lifted the complete architecture" of the analysis that they carried out for their non-fiction function The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, which they co-wrote with Henry Lincoln.

They claim that the similarities amongst the 2 books are such that they have no choice but to sue Random Home, whose imprint Doubleday is the publisher of Brown's novel.

Leigh told the Telegraph after issuing the writ: "It's not that Dan Brown has lifted certain inspirations because a amount of individuals have done that before. It's quite that he's lifted the entire architecture - the entire jigsaw puzzle - and hung it on to the peg of the fictional thriller."

The Da Vinci Code informs the story of the Harvard professor who stumbles across a conspiracy to suppress Jesus Christ's wedding to Mary Magdalene and his fathering of the royal bloodline.

Baigent and Leigh claim that the novel's premise and chunks of factual analysis are plagiarised from their authentic historic hypothesis, that has sold over 2 million duplicates despite being denounced by many Church commentators as "pseudo-history". Baigent said: "Whether our hypothesis is proper or incorrect is irrelevant. The truth is the fact that this might be function that we place together and invested years and years building up."

The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail was based on six years of analysis and hypotheses that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and founded a royal bloodline protected by a series of esoteric societies including the Knights Templar and the Priory of Sion, 1 of whose "Grand Master" heads is advertised to have been Leonardo da Vinci.

The authors argue that Brown lifted their all-important list of the Grand Masters, who supposedly guarded the secret documents for Christ's bloodline, without acknowledgement.

The just mention of their book is when the villain of The Da Vinci Code, an eccentric English historian called Sir Leigh Teabing, lifts a copy off his bookshelf and says: "To my taste, the authors prepared some dubious leaps of belief in their analysis, but their fundamental premise is sound."

The name Leigh Teabing is an anagram of Leigh and Baigent, the authors point out, while his bodily description - he walks with all the help of crutches - is allegedly based found on the 3rd writer, Henry Lincoln, who walks with a limp.

Lincoln has decided to not be piece of the copyright action as a result of ill wellness, but is mentioned to help it.

"We are being lumped in with Dan Brown's function of fiction and that degrades the famous implication of our material," Baigent mentioned. "It makes our function far simpler to disregard as a farrago of nonsense.

"Issuing the writ is not anything we have completed lightly, but we feel that we have no choice."
