Messianic Legacy

Author(s): Michael Baigent

Conspiracies & Alternative Histories

The startling, frighteningly convincing sequel to "The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail", that reveals the very nature of the messianic legacy. After the shocking revelations of "The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail" the authors, in their quest to determine the discrepancies between early and modern 'Christian' thought, found that they were forced to ask such questions as: Was there more than one Christ? Was Christ the founder of Christianity? Were the disciples as peace-loving as it is traditionally assumed? What links the Vatican, the CIA, the KGB, the Mafia, Freemasonry, P2, Opus Dei and the Knights Templar? What mysterious modern crusade implicates British industry, Churchill and de Gaulle, the EEC and Solidarity? "The Messianic Legacy" offers enthralling new investigations into the shadowy society of the 'Prieure de Sion' - 'The Guardians of the Holy Grail' - as the authors discover the murky world of politics, finance, freemasonry, and religion that exists beneath the most solid and conservative seeming of European institutions. The ominous global conspiracy of disinformations they uncovered ensures that "The Messianic Legacy" is an up-to-the-minute thriller, and a work of biblical detection that is even more significant than "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail".
