The Da Vinci Code is written as fiction so if youâve read that, then why not try the fact. This well written and well researched book, by one of the trio who wrote The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail some 20 years ago now, challenges all our preconceived notions of the legend. Itâs brilliant detective work. Fact or fiction – why not decide for yourself?

Synopsis

The Jesus Papers by Michael Baigent

Twenty years ago Michael Baigent and his colleagues stunned the world with a controversial theory that Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene married and founded a holy bloodline. His bestselling book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (with co-authors Henry Lincoln and Richard Leigh) became an international publishing phenomenon and was one of the sources for Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code. Now, with two additional decades of research behind him, Baigent's The Jesus Papers presents explosive new evidence that challenges everything we know about the life and death of Jesus.

Who could have aided and abetted Jesus and why?
Where could Jesus have done after the crucifixion?
What is the truth behind the creation of the New Testament?
Who is working to keep the truth buried and why?

Taking us back to sites that over the last twenty years he has meticulously explored, studied, and in some instances excavated for the first time, Baigent provides a detailed account of his groundbreaking discoveries, including many never-before-seen photos.

About the Author

Michael Baigent was born in New Zealand in 1948. Since 1976 he has lived in England with his wife and children. He is the author of From the Omen of Babylon and ancient Traces and the co-author of the international bestsellers Holy Blood, Holy Grail and The Messianic Legacy (with Henry Lincoln and Richard Leigh), The Temple and the Lodge, The Dead Sea Scrolls, Secret Germany, The Elixir and the Stone, and The Inquisition. As a religious historian and leading expert in the field of arcane knowledge he has undertaken a two-decade long quest for the truth about Jesus that has culminated in the publication of The Jesus Papers.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
