SPECIAL ILLUSTRATED EDITION WITH EXCLUSIVE NEW MATERIAL

"One of the more controversial books of the 20th century." --UPI

"Enough to seriously challenge many traditional beliefs, if not alter them." --Los Angeles Book Times Review

Explosive, thought-provoking, fiercely compelling, Holy Blood, Holy Grail breaks bold new ground with its shocking conclusions about the lineage of Christ and the legacy of the Holy Grail. Now this lavishly illustrated
collector's edition features exclusive new material plus dozens of full-color photographs, drawings, symbols, architecture, and artwork, making it a dazzling feast for the eyes as well as the mind. Based on decades
of research, filled with eye-opening new
evidence and stunning scholarship, this authoritative work uncovers an alternate history as shocking as it is believable--as it dares to ask:

Is the traditional, accepted view of the life of Christ in some way incomplete?

Is it possible Christ did not die on the
cross?

Is it possible Jesus was married, a father,
and that his bloodline still exists?

Is it possible that parchments found in the
South of France a century ago reveal one
of the best-kept secrets in Christendom?

Is it possible that these parchments contain
the very heart of the mystery of the Holy
Grail?

According to the authors of this extraordinarily provocative, meticulously researched book, not only are these things possible--they are probably true. So revolutionary, so original, so convincing, the most faithful Christians will be moved; here is the book that has sparked worldwide controversy, now newly updated and beautifully illustrated for the collector's shelf.

very fun to read but take it and the history it presents cautiously >> good to get ideas for fiction or films but actuall history is suspect ~ 420 I read it years before Da vinci code

Interesting fiction! I say only because the whole basis of the book is based upon "Dossiers Secrets". This was written by Pierre Plantard and Philippe de Ch%C3%A9risey under the pseudonym of "Philippe Toscan du Plantier." It meant to show lineage back to the Merovingian dynasty. They wanted to revive the monarch in France in the 1960's.
