Opening the Ark of the Covenant:
The Secret Power of the Ancients, the Knights Templar Connection, And the Search for the Holy Grail
By Frank Joseph, Laura Beaudoin


The Ark of the Covenant is at once the most famous and baffling article in history. Although it is cited more often than any other object throughout the Old Testament and was described as the ancient Hebrews' most precious possession, its real meaning and ultimate fate were utterly unknown... until now. During his worldwide research into its disappearance, author Frank Joseph learned that the Ark was not a mere legend; nor was it just an elaborate box used to store the original Ten Commandments. It was, he asserts, purpose-built to harness the powers of the Earth for humanity's continued physical existence and spiritual evolution. As such, it is the single most priceless fortune mankind has ever possessed. Following the Ark through the Book of Exodus, he discovered its lineage pre-dated the Bible, extending back in time to ancient Egypt and stories of lost Atlantis. Joseph traced the exact circumstances of the Ark's rediscovery under Jerusalem's Temple Mount by the Knights Templar. Having found the precious object, they returned with it to France, where its clandestine journey across Europe would last for the next 800 years. Opening the Ark of the Covenant is the result of a quarter-century-long investigation. It leads from the sea-bottom off the coast of Florida to the remote heights of France’s Pyrenees Mountains and Japan's secret shrines; from the Nile Valley to the Valley of Mexico. This uniquely far-flung, in-depth hunt for the truth about mankind’s most valuable possession reveals the Ark's actual function, purpose and location. Opening the Ark of the Covenant is a fact-based examination of the Arks real origins, manufactured purpose, historical application, and present whereabouts. Revealing its genuine nature and ultimate destiny represents the most profound disclosure of its kind, powerful enough to shake the foundations of established religions and modern science alike.

The Templar Pirates:
The Secret Alliance to Build the New Jerusalem
By Ernesto Frers


When the Vatican condemned the Order of the Temple in 1312, many of those who escaped took to the sea. Their immediate objective was to take revenge on the Church. Recent discoveries confirm that ships of the Templar fleet that went missing at La Rochelle later reappeared--first in the Mediterranean and later in the Atlantic and Caribbean--to menace the Church’s maritime commerce. These Templar vessels often flew the famed Jolly Roger, which took its name from King Roger II of Sicily, a famed Templar who, during a public spat with the Pope in 1127, was the first to fly this flag. Opportunistic buccaneers saw that vast wealth could be gained in pursuing the Templars’ harassment of the Pope’s interests on the high seas, and they spread a reign of terror across the shipping lanes of the New World. Some unaffiliated pirates, in admiration of the Templar egalitarian ideals, even formed their own secret societies, and together with the Templars were part of the ferment that gave rise to independence movements in France and the New World and contributed to the growth of Freemasonry. The Templar Pirates is the story of the birth and actual conduct of piracy on the seas of the New World and of the influence the Templars had on their constituents and, by their wealth, on the governments of nations old and new.

An Illustrated History of the Knights Templar
By James Wasserman


Despite the increasing scholarship devoted to the study of the Templar order, founded in 1119, the mystery surrounding the Templars endures. Secret societies from the Freemasons to the Ordo Templi Orientis claim descent from this religious order of warrior-monks. As the private army of the pope, the Knights Templar were initially established to protect Christian pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land but grew to become one of the most powerful organizations in the Middle Ages. With period illustrations from manuscripts from the Crusades, interpretive romantic paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries, and contemporary photos by Steven Brooke and others of former Templar strongholds in Europe and Jerusalem, James Wasserman, author of the bestselling The Templars and the Assassins, provides a fascinating history of the Order and the many mysteries and legends that still surround it. Wasserman presents the evidence for the Templar connection to mystical Islamic organizations such as the Assassins as well as their ties to "heretical" groups such as the Cathars, who were targeted by a crusade in southern France to expunge the challenge they presented to the orthodoxy of their time. In addition to providing an overview of the Templars' actions during the Crusades, Wasserman revisits the trial and the charges leveled against them, showing how the Order was ruthlessly crushed. He also explores the nature of the treasure they left behind, which has fueled popular imagination for centuries.

The Trial of the Templars
By Malcolm Barber


The Templars fought against Islam in the crusader east for nearly two centuries. During that time the original small band grew into a formidable army, backed by an extensive network of preceptories in the Latin West. In October 1307, the members of this seemingly invulnerable and respected Order were arrested on the orders of Philip IV, King of France and charged with serious heresies, including the denial of Christ, homosexuality and idol worship. The ensuing proceedings lasted for almost five years and culminated in the suppression of the Order. The motivations of the participants and the long-term repercussions of the trial have been the subject of intense and unresolved controversy, which still has resonances in our own time. In this new edition of his classic account, Malcolm Barber discusses the trial in the context of new work on the crusades, heresy, the papacy and the French monarchy.

The Knights Templar in the Golden Age of Spain:
Their Hidden History on the Iberian Peninsula
By Juan Garcia Atienza


The rise and fall of the Templar Order constitutes a fundamental and decisive episode in medieval history, and the destruction of the Order constitutes a pivotal point that fundamentally altered the direction of society. While much is known about the history of the Templar Order in France, home of its chief commandery in Paris, and in the Latin States of the Middle East, their contribution to events on the Iberian peninsula has until now remained obscure and unexplored. Renowned Templar scholar Juan García Atienza reveals here the important role the Templars played in the Reconquista that saw the Moors driven out of Spain and demonstrates the great influence they exerted in the kingdoms of Castille and Navarre and the territories of Catalonia and Aragon. He examines the mysterious connections between the Templars and the Cathars and troubadours as well as the mystery surrounding the location of all the Templar enclaves in the Iberian peninsula. He also unveils the important role the Templars had as teachers of the Spanish king James I, known as the Conqueror, whose attempt to establish a universal theocratic empire may have been a reflection of Templar ambitions, and explores the Order's suppression in Spain and how it survived in Portugal by simply changing its name.

Secret Societies Of The Middle Ages:
Assassins, Templars, And Westphalian Tribunals
By Thomas Keightley


Secret Societies of the Middle Ages explores the foundations of modern secret societies, examining the history and known facts of three very different organizations:

1. The Assassins of the Middle East--how they evolved from an Islamic religious sect into one of the most feared groups in all the world and how the very name of this ancient order became the word used for political killings of this nature.

2. The Templars of Europe--from a pious group of protectors and dedicated crusaders to their bitter end persecuted as heretics, they introduced the concept of banking to the world while amassing a fortune of incalculable wealth.

3. The Secret Tribunals of Westphalia--the feared and self-appointed judicial group who passed judgment and performed executions in a time of lawlessness in Germany. They enjoyed popular support, providing a rudimentary and vigilante law at a time when warlords ruled and the emperor was ineffective.

The echoes of these particular societies are still heard today--from presidential offices to battlegrounds in the Middle East. Secret Societies of the Middle Ages, originally published in 1846, was the first book to gather information on these secret orders. This foundational reference work, upon which many contemporary histories have relied, is now back in print with an introduction by James Wasserman, author of The Templars and the Assassins: The Militia of Heaven.

The Secret History Of Freemasonry:
Its Origins And Connection To The Knights Templar
By Paul Naudon


Historians often make a sharp distinction between the operative Masonry of the Middle Ages and the speculative Masonry of modern times, emphasizing that there is no direct bridge connecting the two. Modern historians also have scoffed at Masonic claims concerning the close relationship between the Lodge and the Temple. Using medieval archives housed throughout Europe, historian Paul Naudon reveals that there was in fact a very intimate connection between the Masons and the Knights Templar. Church records of medieval Paris show that most, if not all, the Masons of that time were residents of the Templar censive, which allowed them to enjoy great exemptions and liberties from both church and state as a result of the protection afforded them by this powerful order. Naudon shows that the origins of Freemasonry can be traced back to the collegia of ancient Rome. He traces the evolution of organizations such as the Comacine Masters, the Arab turuqs, and the brotherhoods of builders created under the aegis of the Benedictines and the Knights Templar, all of which provide the vehicle for the transmission of a sacred tradition from pre-Christian times to the modern era. This tradition is the source of Masonic ritual and symbolism, and it provides the missing link in the transformation of the operative Masonry of the medieval cathedral builders to the spiritual principles of modern speculative Masonry.

The Holy Place:
Sauniere and the Decoding of the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau
By Henry Lincoln


In 1982, Henry Lincoln, with colleagues Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, published Holy Blood, Holy Grail (Dell), which became an immediate international bestseller. It investigated Rennes-le-Chateau, a small town in France where, in the late 19th century, the discovery of a series of parchments led in turn to a large but cursed treasure that challenged many traditional Christian beliefs-including the possibility that Jesus's bloodline still exists. The treasure's story moved back through history to the Crusades, the origins of the Knights Templar, and the Virgin Birth itself. While Baigent and Leigh moved on to different subjects, Lincoln has continued to pursue the mysteries of Rennes-le-Chateau. Dan Brown's international bestseller The Da Vinci Code (Doubleday 3/03)-based largely on Holy Blood, Holy Grail-has re-ignited curiosity about this ancient, powerful town. In the Holy Place, Lincoln reveals through further surveys, decoding, and analysis that this area in southwest France.

The Last Templar: The Tragedy Of Jacques De Molay
Last Grand Master Of The Temple
By Alain Demurger


The end of the mighty Order of the Temple is one the great stories of the Middle Ages. In 1307 Philip the Fair, the devious King of France, brought one of the most powerful and wealthy institutions in the world to trial - and to an ignominious end. Jacques de Molay, the Temple's last Grand Master, was at the heart of the events in which the chivalric ideal was ousted by treachery and greed. In this pioneering investigation one of France's great medieval scholars describes Jacques de Molay's dazzling career and provides a vivid retelling of the drama of his and his Order's last days. De Molay's life took him from Burgundy to a career in the Middle East. Elected head of the Temple he had to face the loss of the Latin Crusader States. He withdrew to Cyprus and dreamed of the reconquest of Jerusalem. Summoned to France by the Pope for discussions, he was caught up in the King of France's trap, and burned at the stake for refusing to repudiate his order.

The Merovingian Mythos and the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau
By Tracy R. Twyman


Occult expert & historian Tracy R. Twyman has been investigating the Holy Grail and Rennes-le-Chateau, and has written extensively about it in Dagobert's Revenge Magazine. She discovered that the bloodline of the Merovingians stems not only from Christ and Mary Magdalene, but goes back to the god-kings of the antediluvian world. She has determined the nature of the physical object called "the Holy Grail" - a magnificent structure hidden beneath Rennes-le-Chateau. Within this structure is the greatest treasure of human history: the grave of a sacred king named Cain, who brought the wisdom of the gods down from Heaven. The Grail has inspired secret societies and the destiny of humanity. Twyman deciphers clues left by the Priory of Sion, the Knights Templar, and the Freemasons, found in history, mythology, scriptures, and the traditions of the occult, resulting in a reinterpretation of the story of civilization.

Templars in America:
From the Crusades to the New World
Last Grand Master Of The Temple
By Tim Wallace-Murphy, Marilyn Hopkins


Templars in America explodes the myth that Columbus was the first European to discover the Americas. Using archival and archaeological sources, Tim Wallace-Murphy and Marilyn Hopkins reveal the Venetian connection between the Knights Templar and pre-Columbian America and prove the continuous history of such exploration from the time of ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome, through the Viking explorations. Told in fascinating detail, this story takes as many twists and turns as a historical mystery novel. It takes readers through the many possible early explorations of America, which set the stage for the real mystery: the tale of how various dealings between Venice and Normandy resulted in the Templars coming to America. Two leading European Templar families, nearly 100 years before Columbus, combined forces to create a new commonwealth in America. This is the story of Henry St. Clair of the Orkney Islands, then part of Normandy, and Carlo Zeno, a Venetian trader. These early explorers made peaceful and mutually beneficial contact with the Canadian Mi'kmaq people. Although the voyage had little immediate political or commercial impact, it acts as a signpost to a centuries-long process that culminates in the beliefs and traditions of the Templars and Freemasonry, shaping the thinking of the founding fathers of the United States—and the American Constitution. Templars in Americais a wild ride through the golden age of exploration to the founding of the United States of America.

The Knights Templar:
The History and Myths of the Legendary Order
By Sean Martin


This book is an essential exploration into the history of a legendary group of Crusaders, which are prominently featured in Dan Brown's recent best seller, The Da Vinci Code. The Knights Templar rose from humble beginnings to become the most powerful military religious order of the Middle Ages. Formed to protect pilgrims in the Holy Land, they participated in the Crusades and rapidly gained wealth, lands, and influence. Seemingly untouchable for nearly two centuries, they fell from grace spectacularly after the loss of the Holy Land. In the ensuing centuries the Templars have exerted a unique influence over European history; orthodox historians see them as nothing more than soldier-monks whose arrogance was their ultimate undoing, while others see them as occultists of the first order. With clarity and ease, Martin navigates between the orthodox and the speculative, the historical and the myth, to bring alive the story of the Templars. Like those other legends of the Middle Ages-the characters of the Arthurian tales-The Knights Templar holds captive the imagination of all those intrigued by conspiracy and how history and myth intertwine to become the stuff of legend.

The Lost Colony Of The Templars:
Verrazano's Secret Mission To America
By Steven Sora


In 1524, the Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazano was sent by the French king, Francis I, on an expedition to find a shorter route to China. However, his true mission, Steven Sora suggests, was to contact a Templar colony that might have been established in Newport, Rhode Island, by Henry Sinclair at the end of the 14th century. In his expedition log, Verrazano recorded that his only stay on the journey was at Newport Harbour, the site of a tower built to the exact measurements of the Templar baptistery, a sacred sanctuary representing baptism and eternal life. This tower is a remnant of Sinclair's voyage to America nearly a century before that of Columbus (who had access to Sinclair's maps thanks to his wife, who was Sinclair's great-granddaughter). Whilst Verrazano's mission succeeded in finding the tower, the colony itself eluded him. His backers then decided to resurrect the dream of Acadia by creating a new secret society that contained Huguenots and Catholic Sulpicians.

The Templars And The Ark Of The Covenant:
The Discovery Of The Treasure Of Solomon
By Graham Phillips


According to legend the Ark was an ornate golden chest that was both a means of communicating with God and a weapon used against the enemies of the Israelites. To use it, the high priest had to wear a breastplate containing twelve sacred gemstones called the Stones of Fire. These objects were kept in the Great Temple of Jerusalem until they vanished following the Babylonian invasion. At the ruins of Petra in Jordan, Graham Phillips uncovered evidence that the Templars found the Ark and the Stones of Fire and that they brought them back to England when they fled persecution a century later. He followed ciphered messages, inscriptions and stained glass windows to what may well be three of the Stones of Fire. When examined by Oxford university scientists, these stones were found to possess odd physical properties that interfered with electronic equipment and produced a sphere of floating light similar to ball lightning.

Love, War, and the Grail:
Templars, Hospitallers, and Teutonic Knights in Medieval Epic and Romance 1150-1500
By Helen Nicholson


The Knights Templar, Knights Hospitaller, and Teutonic Knights frequently appear in the French, German, and English epic and romance literature of the Middle Ages. 'Love, War, and the Grail' examines the religious roles of the military orders, such as caring for the sick, their warrior role of fighting Muslims, and the role of Templars in the Grail romances. It traces how these roles developed over time and looks at the role of these military religious orders in fiction of the Middle Ages. This is the first in-depth study to consider the subject throughout the medieval period.

Mysteries of Templar Treasure & the Holy Grail:
The Secrets of Rennes Le Chateau
By Lionel & Patricia Fanthrope, Tim Wallace-Murphy


Next to Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, no other place on earth holds as much esoteric symbolism as France's Rennes le Chateau. Its location and design are the subjects of countless rumors, myths and legends. Mysteries of Templar Treasure and the Holy Grail, formerly published as The Secrets of Rennes Chateau, delves into the reality behind the action and adventure of The Da Vinci Code. Rennes le Chateau has plenty of secrets: buried treasure, unsolved murders, supernatural powers, codes on parchments and tombstones, not to mention clues concealed in statues and paintings, enigmatic priests who controlled immense wealth, and secret societies that are still active today. The authors survey the arcane history and secrets of Rennes le Chateau, including its relationship to the Merovingian bloodline of Christ. The Chateau is a possible location of an immense treasure, such as a Templar, Cathar, or Priory of Sion hoard. The final resting place of a famous artifact like the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Longinus, the Emerald Tablets of Trismegistus – or even the Holy Grail. The authors also examine Rennes le Chateau's proximity to Cathar and Templar fortresses, its mystical layout, and its location on the same Paris meridian as so many other esoteric mysteries. Extensive appendices in the book offer possible solutions to secret cryptograms, point out odd connections and commonalities between Rennes le Chateau and J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, and suggest the possibility of fourth-dimension/tesseract implications.

Sauniere's Model and the Secret of Rennes-Le-Chateau:

Berenger Sauniere, an enigmatic priest in the French village of Rennes-le-Chateau, is rumored to have found the legendary treasure of the Cathars. In 1916, Father Sauniere created his ultimate clue: he created a model of a region said to be the Calvary Mount, indicating the Tomb of Jesus. But the region on the model does not resemble the region of Jerusalem. Did Sauniere leave a clue as to the true location of his treasure? What is that treasure and what became of it? After years of research, Andre Douzet discovered the model, the location of Sauniere's treasure- and the possible tomb of Jesus; Father Sauniere had never collected the model from the model maker's.

Holy Blood, Holy Grail
By Baigent, Lincoln, Leigh


NEW TRADE PAPERBACK EDITION! Michael 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.

The Knights Templar in the New World:
How Henry Sinclair Brought the Grail to Acadia
By William F. Mann


In 1398, almost 100 years before Columbus arrived in the New World, the Scottish prince Henry Sinclair, Earl of Orkney, sailed to what is today Nova Scotia, where his presence was recorded by Micmac Indian legends about Glooskap. This was the same Prince Henry Sinclair who offered refuge to the Knights Templar fleeing the persecution unleashed against the order by French king Philip the Fair at the beginning of the 14th century. With evidence from archaeological sites, indigenous legend, and sacred geometry handed down by the Templar order to the Freemasons, author William F. Mann has now rediscovered the site of the settlement established by Sinclair and his Templar followers in the New World. Here they found a safe refuge for the Grail--the holy bloodline connecting the House of David to the Merovingian Dynasty through the descendants of Jesus and Mary Magdalene--until the British exiled all the Acadians in 1755.

The Knights Templars:
God's Warriors, the Devil's Bankers
By Frank Sanello


The history of the Knights Templars, the medieval order of warrior monks who fought in the Crusades, is a centuries-spanning epic. Their mission was to create a safe passage for pilgrims visiting war-torn Jerusalem in the early 12th century. Despite their vows of poverty, the Templars turned out to be brilliant businessmen, renowned for their honesty. Their monasteries served as "banks" in which Europe's rulers and nobles felt safe enough to deposit their money. The Templars also operated highly regarded medical schools, invented cashier's checks, and commanded a naval fleet that allowed them to engage in trade throughout the Atlantic and Mediterranean. But the Templars' wealth and influence provoked jealousy and resentment, as their detractors accused them of betraying their original role as poor men of God. In the early 14th century the Templars were arrested on trumped-up charges of heresy, witchcraft, and homosexuality. Condemned and subjected to years of imprisonment and torture, all but two Templars ultimately confessed to crimes they didn't commit, accepted offers of clemency, and retired to monasteries. The monastic order was outlawed everywhere in Europe, but the Templars have survived in myth and legend until the present day.

Templar Treasure at Gisors
By Jean Markale


Who were these "poor knights of Christ" who made denial of Jesus a requirement of acceptance into the order? What were their true purposes and what was the nature of their secret that drew the wrath of the king of France? Was there really a treasure and, if so, what was it-material wealth or something more powerful, such as the Holy Grail or the secret to the philosopher's stone? Was there a secret order within the order that authorized the heretical practices for which they were condemned? In a search for answers to these and other questions, Celtic and medieval scholar Jean Markale goes back to original source documents in an attempt to clear away the baseless assumptions that have sprung up about the Templars and to shine new light on their activities.
