Overview

Discover the truth about the Knights Templar and find out how this enigmatic order of warrior monks can help to uncover the secret story of the Holy Grail. This compelling historical work charts the Knight’s achievements in a remarkable range of endeavors, from building castles and cathedrals to laying the foundations of the modern marketplace. It uncovers the link between the Rex Deus families and the creation and propagation of the Grail sagas, as well as the later foundation of the Secret Society of Freemasonry. Building a historical framework for the development of Christianity during the last years of the Roman Empire, and the Dark Ages that followed, has never been so captivating.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Yet another author attempting to capitalize on the popularity of The Da Vinci Code, Wallace-Murphy (Rex Deus: The True Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau and the Dynasty of Jesus) here details his own version of Christian history. As he sees it, Rex Deus-a network of families descending from Jesus's union with Mary Magdalene-secretly keeps the flame of Jesus's true (but suppressed) teachings alive by means of Gothic architecture, tarot cards, freemasonry, and the Holy Grail myth. He further posits that the Knights Templar was the "overt arm of the hidden Rex Deus group." He traces the development of the Knights Templar from its beginnings as protector of Holy Land pilgrims after the First Crusade through charges of heresy and its subsequent fall from grace. Several of the author's assertions conflict with accepted scholarship; e.g., the general consensus among scholars is that Jesus remained unmarried and celibate. Suitable for public libraries, but balance with such works as Bart D. Ehrman's Truth and Fiction in The Da Vinci Code: A Historian Reveals What We Really Know About Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Constantine.
