    The first real insight into Sion's raison d'etre - The Best Yet!

    Howells has utilised a wealth of material supplied directly to him by at least three known members of The Priory of Sion; material originally tendered for a documentary film, but was far too revealing and wide-reaching that it defied use and therefore remained beyond both the film-makers' scope and level of esoteric understanding. Howells therefore, rightly, held much of this material back, until now.
    There are several errors e.g: that P. Plantard openly believed in a bloodline emanating from Christ, but such errata are tiny when compared with the treasure-trove of occult, esoteric and historical information supplied to him, and those who believe Sion to have been pure fiction or at best 'a hoax' would be doing themselves a disservice were they not to take-in the material this book contains. Howells knew that, despite the seemingly-generous amount of information proffered, he'd set himself a hard task, however, The Priory had also provided him with contacts at previously unhelpful libraries and private collections from Saint-Sulpice, Paris to the subterranean stacks of Mont St. Michel. He was also furnished with a mass of images, photographic and otherwise. These included such things as the extensive laboratory of a successful contemporary alchemist (and a member of the order), an old manuscript map of the cemetery at Rennes-Le-Chateau, and a plethora of pictures, photographs, essays, maps. genealogies, etc.
    The Foreword, by Nicolas Haywood, makes for a compelling introduction, especially as he - Haywood - has over forty years experience in practical alchemy and related esoteric studies. He also possesses one of the largest private libraries of rare antiquarian incunabula, books, codices and manuscripts on Alchemical & Hermetic Science and as such maintains close ties with known members of such organisations as The Priory of Sion. Haywood is also known to be a 33rd-degree Freemason, and Robert Howells rightly accepted every 'steer' and every facility made available to him, originally as Researcher-in-Chief for 1244 Films' 'Bloodline - The Movie', but he's rightly put the vast surplus material to idyllic use in the form of 'Inside The PRiory of Sion.'
