4.0 out of 5 stars Separating Fact from Fiction: a worthy read, 5 Oct. 2011
By 
I am sure that everyone will know something about the Dan Brown book, "The da Vinci Code" and no doubt many will be aware about some of the controversy that followed in the wake of that book regarding the errors regarding the history of the Grail and the myths surrounding it. No doubt quite a few will consider the whole subject to be fictitious and they will dismiss it out of hand. Of course, there were a slew of books many years ago by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln (The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, to name of of them) that attempted to outline much of the history, whose premise was sometimes rejected by academics as fabrication.

However, here comes a first-hand account written by a self-avowed member of the Priory of Sion, one of the Secret Societies that has been implicated with the whole story, claiming that the Priory of Sion, as well as much of the stories that some regard as myths, is the real deal.

In this book, he outlines the history of the Society, providing copious amount of handwritten (photocopied as appendices in the back) evidence to dismiss in the readers' minds that what he is presenting is anything by mythology: it is presented as hard facts with documented evidence.

However, I should warn you, this book can be a hard slog at times. There is so much fact and history, that it got a little heavy and I found myself having to re-read chapters in order to absorb the material. It is not a light read, but at the same time, it is a most rewarding read and if you are a fan of the Holy Grail and its mythos, then this book is most definitely for you as it will most certainly shed light on one of the biggest controversies of the 20th/21st centuries. I can wholeheartedly recommend it.
