From the best-selling author of The Bloodline of the Holy Grail and Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark comes an explosive historical detective story presenting secret archives on the mysterious life of Mary Magdalene, the hidden lineage of Jesus and Mary, and the real two-thousand-year-old conspiracy involving the entire history of Christianity. Mary Magdalene is described in the New Testament as Jesus' close companion -- a woman he loved and his financial sponsor. And yet, in contrast, the Church teaches that she was a prostitute who became repentant. Why the discrepancy between scripture and dogma? Why does Mary appeal so romantically to artists who have painted her throughout the centuries as something much more significant than the Church traditionally portrays? What is the secret of Mary Magdalene and how much do we really know about her relationship with Jesus? Were they married? Did they have children, and if so, who makes up the messianic lineage?
Laurence Gardner takes us on a detective trail to piece together the true controversial significance of the Magdalene story and its astonishing implications. These include the real da Vinci connection -- the true meaning behind Leonardo da Vinci's paintings and why the Renaissance Church censored portrayals of the Magdalene -- and information on the sacred marriage of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Plus the truth about the enigmatic Templar society called the Priory of Scion and the underground stream that protected the sacred heritage of the messianic descendents. And much more!

book actually tell the truth of our saviors life and his wife"s. According to Jewish traditions he had to be married to be able to teach in the synagogues. a must read and research for the one that is interested in how it really was. there Are many newly discovered books, manuscripts and articles just being released that will shake organized religions roots as the true story comes out.
This book is very informative. Laurence Gardner doesn't just say/claim what he thinks, he investigates the Vatican Archives and other sources, i.e. Various Library Archives, Inscriptions found in/on various locations. This book is not for the faint of heart/Indoctrinated people. If you seek the truth and not what the church or schools want you to believe I highly recommend this book and others that he's written.
I was so blown away by this book. Its interesting and the author provides solid references to back up his point. Its not too difficult to read, but still makes you think. I can't wait to read more from this author!
Wow!, This is great. If you've read the Da Vinci code you'll want to read this next. It covers the historical documented facts that make Mary Magdalene the wife of Jesus in no uncertain terms. Gardiner goes right to the source. He documents every feature he explains with plates of paintings to back it up. The only thing I disagree with is his take on Leonardo's painting of the Last Supper in which we see a faminine figure next to Jesus. Gardiner says is not Mary but John. This book has written documentation from bishops, monks and others including wording in the Gospels that prove Mary was the Mother of Jesus' children. Roman Rulers tried to take out the bloodline and cover it up. It's worth a read.
