Overview

Why do the Ark of the Covenant, Mary's reliquary box, and Jesus' Coffer all have the same imagery?

Was the Ark the container of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments, or the Chalice?

Does the image of the Shroud of Turin contain a bioelectric field?

Philip Gardiner recently won the acclaim of both scholars and the reading public with The Serpent Grail, which united three of the most mysterious objects known to man-the Grail, Elixir and Philosophers Stone. Now, in this unique and thought-provoking work Gardiner proves that the Ark of the Covenant, the Shroud of Turin, and Mary are united in ways never before imagined.

Traveling across the world, from Rome to India, Portugal to Egypt, Gardiner uncovers the trail of the Ark and finds that it does not lead to Ethiopia, as many believe, but instead in a direction that nobody could have imagined. The trail of the Ark takes Gardiner on a hunt into the very heart of an ancient secret society with clandestine meetings in far-off lands.

Uniting the myth, tradition, and language of the Ark with the Shroud of Turin, Gardiner then goes on to re-date it, reveal how it was made, and identify whose image it actually recreates. Through his new-found contacts in the world of secret societies, Gardiner then shows how this incredible secret was protected by a dual brotherhood throughout time and was the secret source of the enlightenment spoken of by numerous orders from the Sufis to the Knights Templar.

The Ark, the Shroud, and Mary outshines the Da Vinci Code for the simple reason that it is the factual story of one man's fight to uncover the truth.

    Stunning

    Waited for this book for ages. gardiner had spoken of his search and the trips to Rome, Egypt and Ethiopia on radio and so I was intrigued. Fascinating book, but also mind bending and exciting. It's a mix between hard scholarly research and exhilerating Indian Jones style race. The author unravels threads that most other writers on the subject missed and even delves into many of the popular perceptions about the Ark in particular. The ending is nail biting and I won't ruin it for you. Off to buy the DVD now!
