Is anyone familiar with this book? It has benefitted from renewed interest since the DaVinci code.
I read it about 15 years ago and know that the central hypothesis - that Jesus survived the Crucifixion and together with Mary Magdalene founded a bloodline that later became the Merovingians in France (protected by the Knights Templar and later by the Freemasons) is a major re-write of history. I am however having trouble with someone I am debating this subject with…There is little doubt that the book is meticulously researched and people do love to get into this sort of conspiracy theory!
I have used Karl Keating’s ideas in his piece on the DaVinci code, disinformation’s review and this nypress.com/17/28/books/KenMondschein.cfm as sources debunking the book’s credability so far, unfortunately, all are Catholic sources and so can hardly be considered unbiased. Has anyone any links or experiences defending the Church against the accusations held in this book?
