The Jesus papers : exposing the greatest cover-up in history by Michael Baigent ( Book )
22 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Despite--or rather because of--all the veneration that has surrounded the figure of Jesus for centuries, historian Baigent asserts that Jesus and his death have been heavily mythologized. Using his access to hidden archives, secret societies, Masonic records, and the private collections of antiquities traders and their moneyed clients, he explores the religious and political climate in which Jesus was born and raised, examining not only the conflicts between the Romans and the Jews, but the strife within the different factions of the Jewish Zealot movement. He chronicles the migrations of Jesus's family, his exposure to other cultures, and the events, teachings, and influences that were most likely to have shaped his early years. Baigent also uncovers the inconsistencies and biases in the accounts of the major historians of Jesus's time, including Josephus, Pliny, and Tacitus. Their enduring influence reveals that spin is not a new phenomenon.--From publisher description
The temple and the lodge by Michael Baigent ( Book )
21 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dispelling myth and reevaluating European and American history, The Temple and the Lodge is an illuminating investigation into the evolution of Freemasonry. Coauthors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, 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.?

Secret Germany : Claus von Stauffenberg and the mystical crusade against Hitler by Michael Baigent ( Book )
26 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of the hero behind the attempt to kill Hitler, the subject of "Valkyrie," starring Tom Cruise, set for June 2008 release. By July of 1944, the Third Reich's days were numbered. Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, a general staff insider with open eyes (and access to the Fuhrer), was convinced that assassinating Hitler was the only way to prevent the destruction of the Fatherland and the deaths of millions. On July 20, he hid a bomb-stuffed briefcase at a high-level meeting. The explosion tore through the room, but a table leg spared Hitler from the blast. The result was a witch hunt, a wave of executions, and a further pointless year of war. Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh deliver an exhilarating and definitive portrait of the anti-Nazi movement (called "Secret Germany") that almost killed Hitler. "Secret Germany" is the story of "World War II's boldest plot-that-failed" ("Time"), a coup that was a moral and spiritual necessity

Holy blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent ( Recording )
7 editions published between 1982 and 2006 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 180 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? Is it possible Jesus was married, a father, and that his bloodline still exists? Is it possible that parchments found in the South of France a century ago reveal one of the best-kept secrets of Christendom? Is it possible that these parchments contain the very heart of the mystery of the Holy Grail? According to the authors of this extraordinarily provocative, meticulously researched book, not only are these things possible--they are probably true! so revolutionary, so original, so convincing, that the most faithful Christians will be moved; here is the book that has sparked worldwide controversey
