Overview

The location of the Arc of the Covenant is a mystery that is thousands of years old.
This book recounts the investigation of a secret in the south of France. As the investigation developed, it became apparent that this puzzle involved Freemasonry ... and was uncovering a grand conspiracy.

THE QUESTIONS . . .

Are the Knights Templar and Freemasons related?
Do they still exist today?
If they were the guardians of the Ark of the Covenant, where is it now?
Is there anything else, apart from guarding the Ark, that these people are trying to achieve?

AND THE CLUES

The importance of the angle 33
Sacred geometrical squaring of a circle
Nineteenth-century survey map of Jerusalem
Codes hidden within the Masonic Royal Arch ritual, two Grand Officers' jewels, & the Grand Master's jewel
The fascination that the Masonic ritual compilers had with the #3
The sacred symbol yodh from the ceiling of the Great Temple in the Grand Lodge

"Not since Hancock's Sign & the Seal has so plausible and logical a theory been put forth involving the Templars and the Ark of the Covenant. In fact the publication of this book may well see many Hancock supporters changing their thinking, including Mr. Hancock himself." Stephen Dafoe, Grand Historian for the Sovereign Great Priory of Canada Knights Templar

Read an Excerpt

Like many others I have been curious about the Rennes-le-Chateau area for over ten years, ever since I read Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln. But it wasn't until I read The Tomb of God by Andrews and Schellenberger that I realized that there might be a connection between Freemasonry and a mountain on the northeastern slopes of the Pyrenees in the Roussillon region of southern France. My first thoughts were that perhaps the solution to the Rennes-le-Chateau mystery lay within the Masonic ritual and that likewise the "long lost secret," which all Freemasons are taught to seek, might be tied up with Rennes-le-Chateau. This particular puzzle has literally captured the imagination of millions. The manuscripts, though, which point to a solution were supposedly found in a "hollow column" and this adds a strange Masonic "dimension" to it.

My early discovers quickly confirmed that the location of Pech Cardou is encoded within the Masonic ritual and my first reaction was that I had stumbled onto a Masonic secret from a higher rank than those that I hold. My inquiries in this area soon allayed my fears and my natural curiosity did the rest, driving me over the next two years to a solution of the puzzle. As I progressed with my research and more fellow-Masons became aware of where my findings were going, I was asked more than once, "Why are you doing this?" I am a "middle ranking" Freemason, and this question has caused me more than a little reflection; I have therefore devoted a few pages of this preface to explaining why I have decided to publish my findings.

At an early stage my research was providing evidence that beneath this Masonic ritual encoding of geographic landmarks identifying Pech Cardou, there appeared to be something else equally intriguing. It appears that particular lines of longitude may have been allocated to mark the resting-places of something of immense importance on its journey from the East to the West.

It is strange how this investigation expanded from the early discoveries of codes within the Masonic ritual to encompass much of France and particularly Paris. In the process, what had been a background curiosity became the focus of a large part of the last two years of my life. I am, however, convinced that this information is not so much a secret of Freemasonry, but more a secret of which Freemasonry is but a part.
