About the Author

The authors' collaboration began when Erling Haagensen, born on Bornholm, was beginning to find the strange truth of his island home and contacted Henry Lincoln who had already produced three books and three documnetary films which had provided the first glimpse of the facts which were underlying the story. Henry Lincoln is a highly-respected historian and broadcaster. His previous books include the worldwide bestselling The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it truly was a great read 31 Jan 2001
...even more convincing, less intricate and mysterious than the Rennes-le-Chateau story outlined in the author's (Lincoln) "Key to the Sacred Pattern". Most of these facts, including the two most important, The Templars in Denmark and the Baltic and the incredible accurateness of the placing of the four round churches on the isle of Bornholm, have, of course, been known to historians as well as land surveyers all along, but deliberately put down as romanticism and coincidence bad for the public's mental health. There is an obvious german link to the baltic crusades not gone into in this work, which has found a kind of norwegian counterpart in Harald Sommerstedt Boehlke's: The Norwegian Pentagram, published by Eutopia, Norway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well researched and inspirational read 9 May 2001
Having visited Bornholm and met one of the authors just before the book was published whilst researching wider Templar influence in Scandinavia, I can say the book was well worth the wait. The exceptional work done by Haagensen on the sacred geometry and layout of the Bornholm churches is an good example of the way such theories should be presented, backed up with hard academic facts.
There are some ascertains made that I feel are not accurate but then this is still an emerging area of history and takes nothing from the 'story' and exciting discoveries made. All of which add another piece to the most intriguing of all puzzles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating 13 Jan 2004
You really need to have some background before reading this regarding Rennes le Chateau - something like The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail or similar.
There is a lot of mathematics involved, lots of geometry and calculations but the basic thrust of it is explained simply and easily for any non-mathematicians out there. In short it regards the discovery of evidence that the builders of the churches of Bornholm were in possession of knowledge and expertise far in advance of that which was supposed to exist at the time.
Some really eye opening stuff and pretty hard to dispute, even for the sceptical reader. This is probably more aimed at people with a keen interest in the whole Templar/Freemasonry/Rennes-le-Chateau area and writers like Henry Lincoln, Michael Baigent etc. If you are one of these people, add this to your list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Assured of another great read! 12 April 2000
As a longtime fan of the work of Henry Lincoln (Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Key to the Pattern, Holy Place) I look forward to another great read. Henry Lincoln has for many changed the concept of the past and even the expectations of the future. By unearthing the medieval secrets of the Knights Templar, he has opened a Pandora's Box to a trove of knowlege. The Templars somehow broke the monopoly that the Church and certain secret brotherhoods held over the secrets of the ancients. They too kept the secrets but in a tradition of an ancient elite added new clues, often hidden in plain sight. Now Lincoln and Haagensen break the hold that even these elite sacred groups had. Templar churches in England, in Scotland, in Bornholm, in Portugal are just part of the clues. It is my own theory that the so-called Viking Tower (aka the "Norman Villa") in Rhode Island too may be linked. I eagerly await The Templars Secret Island.
