Holy Blood Holy Grail
by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln
An international bestseller and mind-blowing exposé of the Prieuré de Sion, the Knights Templar, the Freemasons, and the history of the Christian church. Well-written and entertaining. Blows open the mystery and meaning of the Holy Grail, proving that it actually represents the bloodline of Christ. Provides convincing evidence that today's royal families, especially the Habsburgs, the Stuarts and the Merovingians, are actually a continuation of the Royal House of David. Will have you forever doubting that Mary was a virgin, that Jesus was unmarried and that he died on the cross. The authors also argue that members of these dynasties, from King Solomon to King James of England have been practitioners of the occult and members of esoteric mystery cults.

The Anti-Christ and a Cup of Tea
by Tim Cohen
This book contains Tim’s interpretations of messianic prophecy pertaining to the Anti-Christ. Tim believes that Prince Charles of Wales, a direct descendant of the "13th Illuminati Bloodline" known as the Merovingians, which Cohen believes to be the spawn of the Devil. Cohen examines Prince Charles’ name (which he calculates to be caballistically equal to the number 666 according to some obscure method); his coat of arms (which features a red dragon that Tim believes to be the Beast of Revelation); as well as his public words and deeds. Using mostly sources from rival prophecy books by similar church-published authors, as well as Colorado-area newspaper clippings, Cohen presents evidence that Prince Charles is interested in "New Age" ideas such as spiritualism, alternative medicine, world government, and the essential unity of world religions. Tim Cohen claims that Prince Charles has asked to be referred to as the "Defender of Faith" upon his assumption to the British throne (instead of the traditional "Defender of the Faith), and that he has expressed interest in reconciling Islam (which he has a particular interest in) with Judaism and Christianity, creating a unified world church. Time Cohen also demonstrates that Charles has put in a formal request to be declared "King of the European Union." He would likewise prefer that Israel join the European Union, and for Jerusalem to be the Union’s spiritual capital. He claims that Prince Charles is brokering to have the Temple Mount shared by both Jews and Muslims, under the direct authority of the Vatican! He then informs the reader that Prince Charles is the principle owner and founder of the Mondex corporation, which has patented a cashless system of currency which is set or global implementation, even scoring contracts already with nations such as Canada. This system would involve a tattoo on one’s hand or forehead, the proverbial "Mark of the Beast." And of course, this book delves into the conspiracy to ritually murder Princess Diana as a pagan sacrifice to the goddess Diana. Interesting stuff. You will certainly come away with a deeper appreciation of Prince Charles’ character, ambition, and influence in the field of global politics. He’s not just a guy with funny ears who wants to be a tampon.

Sauniere’s Model and the Secret of Rennes-le-Chateau
by André Douzet
The author (whom others have speculated to be a member of the Priory of Sion today) claims to have discovered and purchased a plaster model that Berenger Sauniere had made of the topography and landscape of Rennes-le-Chateau - disguised as the topography and landscape of the Old City of Jerusalem. (this only further supports out theory that the area surrounding Sauniere’s church has been purposely designed to resemble the landscape of the Holy Land.) Douzet believes the model indicates that Christ was buried in a specific spot, Perillos, by Joseph of Arimathea. The name "Perillos", he says, is derived from the Occitan word for the pear fruit, "péro", which adorns the coat of arms of the local village of Perellons. A pear can also be seen in a painting displayed in a church near Arques, in which the baby Jesus is shown in the Garden of Eden being handed a pear by an old woman. The pear, says Douzet, symbolizes Venus, and the specific species of pear represented in both the Coat of Arms and the painting is called, locally, "Mary Magdalen." It is interesting to note that this book was supposedly published in conjunction with the "Société Perillos", which has a shining Grail cup on a shield as its insignia.

This book also contains some interesting information on Sauniere’s frequent visits to Lyons, where Douzet says he had his plaster model made, and where he attended meetings of a Martinist sect. Here, says Douzet, Sauniere found a painting of Mary Magdalen that privided the inspiration for his own bas relief above the altar of his church. It also speculates that Berenger Sauniere may have had access to a secret, 23rd Chapter of The Revelation of St. John the Divine, something we had previously speculated in regards to John Cocteau. This book is definitely worth picking up.

Genesis of the Grail Kings
by Sir Laurence Gardner
The latest from ex-Dragon Court and Prince Michael affiliate Laurence Gardner, This picks up where Bloodline of the Holy Grail left off. Whereas “Bloodline” explored the history of Jesus' descendants in the Stewart and Merovingian dynasties, this traces the history of the bloodline from Christ and King David backward, to the antediluvian world of Ancient Mesopotamia, and a race of beings or angels called the Annunaki/Nephilim, who fell from Heaven and intermarried with the wives of men to create a special race of humanity - the Grail Bloodline. It also explains how these beings created the first government (a monarchy) on Earth, and taught mankind the arts of civilization - mathematics, astronomy, agriculture, seafaring, metallurgy, etc. We also learn that they were able to live for hundreds of years and maintain themselves in a “highward state” of mental and physical health by the consumption of something called “Starfire”, a special hormone that is produced by the pineal gland, secreted in menstrual blood, and then consumed by another. This substance was later synthesized via the alchemical process into something called “White Powder Gold”, which could, in addition to being consumed for health purposes, also be used for anumber of other practical purposes, due to it’s anti-gravitational and quantum properties. This book also contains an interesting theory that Moses was a contemporary of the heretical Egyptian Akhenaten, from whom he copped his monotheistic doctrine.

Key to the Sacred Pattern
by Henry Lincoln
The latest installment from Holy Blood, Holy Grail co-author. After years of being the world’s foremost authority on the subject of Rennes-le-Chateau, Lincoln seems to have gotten bored with the whole subject, except for the aspects dealing with sacred geometry. This book tells the behind-the-scenes details of his discovery of the RLC mystery, the subsequent break-in of the tomb believed to be depicted in Pousin’s painting, The Shepherds of Arcadia, and his relationships with Priory of Sion members Pierre Plantard, Philippe de Cherisey, and Gerard de Sede, the latter of which engaged in a fistfight with him at one point. He even stumbled across a hanging goat carcass at RLC that had been sacrificed by Satanists. Many previously unpublished facts and clues about the mystery are revealed in this book and it ends with a study of the RLC geometry which convincingly argues that Europe is covered with a grid-like pattern that has been used to place churches and monuments in geometrically significant spots. The predominant geometry used is, predictably, pentagonal, followed by the hexagon. Lincoln proves what many authors have argued, that the English measurement system is based on an ancient system of measurement which was itself based on the circumference of the Earth. In other words, the ancient peoples not only knew that the Earth was round, but they knew the exact size. One would think that this indicates the intervention of either gods or extraterrestrials, but Lincoln does not argue that.

Web of Gold: The Secret Power of a Sacred Treasure
by Guy Patton and Robert Mackness
Behind the public face of the Priory of Sion that has so intrigued us at Dagobert’s Revenge lies a shadowy world of intrigue and scandal, of political payoffs and clandestine activities. In Web of Gold, the authors expose this seamy underbelly of corruption so often glossed over by Priory researchers who are more interested in investigating the validity of their mystical claims. Patton and Mackness have delved into the details of POS Grand Master Pierre Plantard’s activities during WWII, and the friends which he maintained throughout his life. Citing evidence of right-wing leanings and involvement with the Vichy collaborationist government in France (while he was also nominally involved with the Resistance movement) they claim that the Priory of Sion and related groups are nothing more than minions of a widespread neo-fascist movement called the Third Position, which is seeking to unify Europe. They also claim that the European government these groups are seeking is “Synarchic” in nature, and that many of these groups believe in the existence of an underground utopian kingdom, called Agartha, located in the center of the Earth, where their ideal government is, they believe, exemplified. Patton ties the Priory of Sion in with the election of François Mitterand, whom they claim was a member, as well as the P2 Mason lodge banking scandal from the 80s, and the death of Grace Kelly, perpetrated by a POS front group, the Order of the Solar Temple. They also get into the fascinating story of Otto Skorzensky, who was hired by the Nazis to find the Holy Grail/Treasure of Solomon’s Temple, which he reportedly did find, and which was seen by townspeople being smuggled out. The claims of Merovingian descendant of Roger-René Dagobert are also explored.

The Templar Revelation
by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince
The most shocking book about the Grail mystery to come out in the last decade, The Templar Revelation rewrites the standard interpretation of the life and teachings of Jesus, and his relationships with the other characters in the New Testament, particularly John the Baptist and Mary Magdalen. St. John, they purport, was considered by his followers to be the real Messiah, and was assassinated on the orders of Jesus, who wanted the position for himself. This belief spawned the Johannite heresy that has persisted unto this day among such groups as the Knights Templar and the Priory of Sion. Magdalen, they contend, was not only Jesus’ bride, but his priestly consort in a series of sex magick rituals which were at the heart of the teachings of Jesus’ secret mystery cult. The authors contend that Christ learned the secrets of sex magick from John the Baptist, whose religious sect Jesus most certainly belonged to, and that these secrets have been preserved by the Templars, the Priory of Sion, the Rosicrucians, and the rest. There’s even an interesting bit about Simon Magus’ possible role in the whole affair, and a compelling theory is presented which states that Leonardo da Vinci forged the Shroud of Turin using a sophisticated photographic technique which he had invented. Fascinating stuff.

GENISIS: The First Book of Revelations
by David Wood
A very weird and deeply involved geometric study of the Rennes-le-Chateau area and other important locations in France. The author connects the dots between important Grail related sites to show significant shapes, angles and measurements which he believes to contain hidden clues about Isis and Osiris. Lots of math and many excellent color photos. (Note: the author nearly wrecked his marriage because of all the time-consuming work that went into this.)

Geneset - Target Earth
by David Wood and Ian Campbell

Poussin's Secret
by David Wood
A pamphlet following up on Geneset: Target Earth. Now the authors believe that they have found the same apocalyptic warning in Poussin's painting Les Bergers d'Arcadie. This is because the picture is actually a scaled-down geometric replica of Rennes-le-Chateau. Odd but illuminating.
