Goddess, the Grail and the Lodge
The secret history of our times revealed, the real origins of the Da Vinci code
The history we learn at school focuses on animosity between nations. In reality, history, religion, myth, science and philosophy are a woven tapestry. The Goddess, the Grail and the Lodge reveals the origins of the grail in Goddess religion, and shows its continuance through Christianity to modern times, with devotees of the Goddess still at work in the world today. It explains why the grail was adopted, how it existed on different levels to different people, and shows what "Grail Knowledge" really is and was.

I found myself reading on, utterly absorbed in the contents. This is a wide-ranging book, which after a useful (and readily understandable) prÃ©cis of systems of measurement used in antiquity, went on to explain the 'salt lines' discovered by Xavier Guichard in the 1930s. This was the best and clearest explanation I have read of this ancient latitude/longitude grid system which links so many megalithic sites. From the Rosicrucians to the Golden Thread, from the Astrology of Washington to the architecture of Rosslyn Chapel, from the Magdalene to Parzival, and a whole lot more - it's all in here, clearly and economically written and logically set out. To anyone with the slightest interest in these areas, I highly recommend this excellent book. ~ Kate Gooch, Editor, Avalon Magazine, Spring 07
