This book is far more than just about a man whom we call Jesus being married to Mary Magdalene. The books asserts that Jesus was not a Jew but an Egyptian who practiced sorcery as did the Egyptian magi.
It also asserts that John the Baptist was really the True Christ.
The book makes very interesting reading there is no doubt we have been lied to and those who control the Roman church are still lying to us all today. Well worth the read and its imperative that we read these type of books because the elites want us to remain ignorant and in the dark. ( )

Knights Templar, Cathars, Mary Magdalane, John The Baptist, Church cover ups, Secret Societies and Ancient Egypt - this book contained lots of subjects that I usually find interesting but I found this book to be very dry and uninspiring. It could be that I've read to many books on the subject matter but for me this book didn't contain anything I hadn't read elsewhere.

If you are going to out the word revelation in your title it might be an idea to have a big revelation in your book. Mary Magdalane and Jesus were lovers has been claimed already in numerous books, the Catholic Church picked the gospels that supported their version of Jesus's life of course they did every organisation or even person picks the version of events that best suits their purpose. Or how about this for a big revelation - Jesus was not the Son of God but actually a human being who along with all his human flaws and weaknesses also had some good ideas about how we should treat our fellow human beings.

The Templar Revelation by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince

This book covers various topics from the Freemasons, the Knights Templar, the Cathars, the early Christian church, Mary Magdalene, and St. John the Baptist.

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown spawned an insatiable demand for books on the sublime history of humanity. How does Freemasonry fit in with a religious mystery with some of the biggest players in religious history? How was it that a group of nine poor French knights created one of the greatest military orders that ever existed? Why were the Cathars seen as heretics and exterminated with prejudice while other heretical groups received glancing verbal attacks from Rome? What is the true story of the rise of the Christian Church? How and why was Mary Magdalene portrayed as a prostitute when she was obviously somebody special to Christ? What was the relationship between John the Baptist and Jesus Christ; were they rivals or were they working together?

Like other Picknett / Prince books, the reader is led down the detective path to determine their versions of the truth. I found their argument compelling yet intriguing.

Will reading this book change your opinions of many issues related to the Christian Church? Maybe. It will, and should, definitely open your eyes to a new version of the Christian Church.

I have read this book a couple of times now and continue to find new exciting areas to pursue my interests. The connections between Freemasonry and the Templars and the Catholic Church is fascinating. The figures active and alive at the time of Christ all played a significant role in the development of the early Church. How big a role is debatable.

Overall, I would recommend this book to any general reader.

Happy Reading, ( )

That’s where Dan Brown excavated the intrigue for his “Da Vinci Code”. The opening chapter is named: Le code secret de Leonard de Vinci” and so on and so on. The dim places in the Bible, mysterious images in the early Christian churches, the history of the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and other secret societies. A luxury compilation of information of this kind. Read “”The Pendulum of Foucault” By Umberto Ecco – have a cold shower.

I never did read the Da Vinci code but i guess this book contains many of the same concepts just in non-fiction form. Very interesting ideas. ( )

Istražujući Leonarda da Vinčija i Torinski pokrov, Lin Piknet i Klajv Prins bili su zatečeni tragovima na koje su naišli u delima velikog renesansnog umetnika i naučnika koji kao da su upućivali na postojanje tajne podzemne religije. Sledeće nagoveštaje neprekidnog postojanje te religije pronašli su u londonskoj crkvi iz dvadesetog veka. Ovo je bio samo početak potrage koja će autore odvesti kroz vreme i prostor do srca evropskog okultizma i mračne istorije misterioznih udruženja poput slobodnih zidara, katara i vitezova templara. Istraživali su pozadinu poznatih činjenica. Put ih je vodio ka idejama i verovanjima iz prvog veka naše ere i novom razornom pogledu na stvarni karakter i motive navodnog osnivača hrišćanstva, kao i na ulogu Jovana Krstitelja i Marije Magdalene. U tom poduhvatu otkrili su skrivenu istoriju sačuvanu kroz vekove, čije završno poglavlje može uzdrmati same temelje crkve.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0684848910, Paperback)


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.
