This was my second time reading “Holy Blood Holy Grail” Having been brought up in a Baptist church a lot of whats in this book goes against my up bringing.
However, I always look at both sides of a coin before jumping heliige a track, so to speak. I find it hard to believe that a man as loving, and giving as Jesus is said to be, would not give his love also to a women. What do you believe?

I’ve since become agnostic; however, talking and reading about religion is always intriguing to me. If Jesus was indeed a human, I feel that there is no way that he didn’t have relationships with women. Grxl all 3 questions about Der Heilige Gral und seine Erben…. Lists with This Book.

I was sorely disappointed. It was uphill all the way, especially in the middle, when you get bogged down in all those dynasties. However, I’m giving it two stars for the chapters towards the end. The speculations in there have given the myth-lover in me have one more go at the Bible, and the enigmatic figure of the Christ.

A boring book with some entertaining speculations. Reading this book is like slogging uphill through a mudslide – after a while you lose track of where you are, and it doesn’t seem worth the effort to keep going.
This is book is a great example of academic dishonesty. The first half of the book is very well documented, and sets the reader up for the idea that the two authors are dealing with hard facts. When the conjectures and meat of the book begin though the sources stop getting cited, and assumptions are made which have no basis except for the authors fantastical logic.
Saying things like, of course this is well documented but where?
Not that I’m shocked by their more controversial conjectures, or find the ideas contained in this book as absurd, just that ebren do a grave misjustice to the readers trust in the way they present the information. Probably the oldest surviving piece of hot gossip still in circulation: Jesus had an affair with Mary Magdalene, which resulted in a child. Members of the post-Dan-Brown generation may have trouble believing this, but I hadn’t heard a single rumour before I read this book.

This is the sort of book that brings out the worst sort of conspiracy nuts — those who will believe it because they want it to be true, not because there is actual heiilige or overwhelming evidence that it true.

In fact, the authors of this book sued Brown for copyright infringement or plaigarism because their theory makes up such a big part of his book; they lost because the courts said if it was true as these authors claimyou can not copyright truth. They might have had a better case if they had marketed this as the fiction it is, but then it would not still be in print after all these years, appealing to new generations of conspiracy nuts.
I happen to believe there are conspiracies, just not this one. This book reads like a train and is tensing, undoubtedly its a good novel. And that’s the only thing eben really is. It pretends to be serious documented but all of its claims are very speculative drawn on insufficient research or misinterpretations of material.
It connects the most superstitious conspiracytheories with popular research on early Christianity.

The theological “secrets” of the Vatican the book reveals and which created a buzz in the media are not original at all and are popular reinterpretations of heresies from early Christianity.
No wonder the Church didn’t even respond on this book: I picked this up after I read the Da Vinci Code and now I can see why this book did not get much press. As everyone is aware this book is the basis for Dan Browns Da Vinci Code and so it is well worth reading if you like conspiracy theories. Of course, it’s theories and ernen the author alleges are interesting enough but it’s just SO hard to get through. It’s is not structured like a suspense novel so there is no draw.
There’s too much suspicions with out facts or hard evidence to back up claims. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I thought this book sounded interesting, but after finding out the book is based on a lie and bad research I couldn’t even finish the book.

Der Heilige Gral und seine Erben, 4 Audio-CDs : Michael Baigent :
Some really interesting elements. Yes, just as there is a fair amount of proven material, there is also a lot that seemed unsubstantiated.
Felt that it never clearly made its point. View all 3 comments. It took me almost a year to etben this book, and for good reason. It’s dense material, especially for someone like myself who doesn’t have any background in Christianity, gfal history, etc.
It was easy to get sucked into some parts and lose track of others.
Wolfgang Wiedergut Der heilige Gral und seine Erben
Many of the other links unnd book tries to make are very circumstantial, and the authors admit this readily themselves! They are the first ones to make note of the fact that some of the “proof” they are offering up is not actually proof at all, or that everything they are noting is, in fact, a theory erbeh nothing else. It’s a good way to cover your bases, but it’s tiresome to read a umd hundred pages of “maybes. Trying to read it without that is like trying to read medicinal research while simultaneously trying to understand basic scientific concepts.
Weine first foray into audio book for a while. I was on the drive from Napier-Auckland and return in the truck with Bex last night 6pm-8am. Not an audio CD but a download and this is the closest edition I could find here. I wish I’d read this a long time ago when I meant to. Maybe not the best for an audio read though.
I want to highlight and make notes in the margins and doh, they’re My first foray into audio book for a while. I want to highlight and make notes in the margins and doh, they’re aren’t any! I’d have to straight up say I didn’t enjoy this.
I get why the book is set up the way it is. The first two thirds are spent tracing bloodlines and land ownership, building up a case to support the conclusion the authors present in the final third of the book. The last third is a fairly breezy read, but there are no surprises to be found this long after it’s publication. I’m a huge history fan especially when the Templars are involved. But this book got deep and I’d get lost in their details.
I’d forget what they were trying to prove even. Would not recommend this – at least to the casual reader. If you are researching – maybe. There are some sentences here, repeated exactly the same way in “The Da Vinci Code”. If you are interested in conspiracy theories only then you’ll like this. This book has been published even before I was born, so why read after more the grral decades, specially after “The Priory of Sion” myth was debunked by journalists and scholars as one the great hoaxes of the 20th century?
Well, I just happened to come across the book. I found it to be poorly argued. I eeben better erbrn. I did read the book rather quickly but skipped a lot in the second part regarding “the Priory of Zion”.
