From the coauthor of "Holy Blood, Holky Grail" - a basis for "The Da Vinci Code" - comes a book that reveals the existence of a vast Christian architectural masterpiece, an immense geometric temple in the south of France with possible ties to the Holy Grail.
In 1982, Henry Lincoln, along with colleagues Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, published "Holy Blood, Holy Grail", wich became an immediate international best-seller. It investigated Rennes-le-Château, a small town in southwestern France where, in the late nineteenth century, village priest Bérenger Saunière's discovery of a series of parchments led in turn to a large but cursed treasure that challenged many traditional Christian beliefs - including the possibily that Jesus's bloodline still exists. The treasure's story moved back through history to the Crusades, the origins of the Knights templar, and the Virgin Birth itself.
Now Dan Brown's international best-seller "The Da Vinci Code" has re-ignited curiosity about this ancient, powerful place. In "The Hoky Place", Lincoln reveals through further surveys, decoding, and analysis that this area in southwestern France is the site of a Christian holy place of enormous size and importance. The bok contains more than a hundred photographs, illustrations, and diagrams of Saunière, Rennes-le-Château, the parchments that were the original impetus for Saunière's discoveries, and the geometric foundations upon which they were based.

A good and fast reading if you like maths and geometry. All the facts are explained with references to those matters.
Nevertheless I liked it and think it's very well documented.

Now it will stay at The Netherlands as a gift for a very special person...
Hope you like it!
