First Sentence
The 'official' version of Abbe Sauniere's discovery of the parchments in 1887 (some accounts say 1886) is to be found at the Sauniere museum at Rennes-le-Chateau, written up and displayed on the walls for all to see. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
The book sets out to examine the evidence as scientifically as possible; leading from one set of evidence and conclusions to another without introducing any authors' prejudices. The reader must be detrmined to see it through and there is a danger of information overload for the casual 'browser'. The one area for criticism is that the book did not come up with a convincing explicit explanation of the sudden wealth of Fr Sauniere (although the implication is clear)and this, for me, undermined the book's radical conclusion. Certainly worth a read but keep your feet on the ground, being as sceptical as the authors tried to be.

Format: Paperback
The conclusions of this book are that Jesus's body was spirited out of Jerusalem by the Knights Templar and buried near a village in the Pyrenees. This secret has been handed down through the centuries to initiates of a a secret society headed by, amongst ohter people, Sir Isaac newton, Leonadro da Vinci and Jaques Costeau. The authors calim to have unravelled this grand conspiracy by decoding the geometries implicit in paintings and two parchments, and similarly obscure clues. (They've never seen the original parchments, by the way; they've only seen photos of them.)
If you think this hypothesis is completely implausible, you are right. The authors, who patently have no idea of historical method, gullibly swallow hypotheses from various sources as if they were proven fact, never check any basic facts that could shatter their thesis and pile one implausiblility on top of another.
Save your money. The treasures of Rennes le Chateau is an interesting and justifiably famous story, but there must be many better books on it than this.
(If you ARE convinced by their hypothesis, seek out the 1996/97 BBC "Timewatch" documentary on it, and think again.)
