"The Temple and the Lodge is the most illuminating investigation yet published into the evolution of Freemasonry. Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh recount the events that led to the strange and sudden disappearance of the Knights Templar in the fourteenth century and their reappearance in the court of excommunicate Scottish king Robert the Bruce. Theorizing, and documenting, the survival of Templar traditions through the birth of the Masonic lodge, the authors chart the history of Freemasonry through its medieval roots and into the modern era. They demonstrate the order's contribution to the fostering of tolerance, progressive values, and cohesion in English society, which helped to preempt a French-style revolution in England. In addition, they show how Freemasonry contributed to the formation of the United States as an embodiment of the ideal 'Masonic Republic.'"--Back cover

Holy blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent( Recording )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the traditional, accepted view of the life of Christ in some way incomplete? Is it possible Christ did not die on the cross?
