"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

The holy blood and the Holy Grail by Michael Baigent( Book )

73 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 15 languages and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A nineteenth century French priest discovers something in his mountain village at the foot of the Pyrenees that enabled him to amass and spend a fortune of millions of pounds. Beginning with buried treasure, the tale then turns into an unprecedented historical detective story -- a modern Grail quest that stretches back through cryptically coded parchments, secret societies, the Knights Templar, the Cathar heretics of the twelfth century, and a dynasty of obscure French kings deposed more than 1,300 years ago. The authors' conclusions are persuasive: at the core is not material wealth, but a secret -- a secret of explosive and controversial proportions, which radiates out from the little Pyrenees village to encompass the whole of Western civilization. Its repercussions reach all the way to contemporary politics, and the entire edifice of the Christian faith. It involves nothing less than the Holy Grail"--Global Books in Print
Secret Germany : Claus von Stauffenberg and the mystical crusade against Hitler by Michael Baigent( Book )

30 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and German and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the hero behind the attempt to kill Hitler, the subject of the motion picture Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise. 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 Führer), 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."--Back cover

Holy blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent( Recording )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 137 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
