The Sword and the Grail: The Story of the Grail, the Templars and the True Discovery of America (New)
by Sinclair, Andrew
Book ID: 9781841583969, 1841583960
The discovery of a tombstone built by his ancestors set Andrew Sinclair on a trail that was to lead to major reassessments, not only of our understanding of the discovery of America, but also of the origins of the Freemasons and their role in world history.
Based on stunning new archaeological evidence, both in the US and in the UK, The Sword and the Grail details the part played by the Order of the Knights of the Templar -- here proved to be the true antecedents of the Freemasons -- in the discovery of America. As they fled the authorities who wished them destroyed, some of the outlawed Templars carried their treasure to St. Clair Castle, where the knights’ relics are still buried. The tomb of their St. Clair Grand Master, with the grail carved on his stone, lies in Rosslyn, the core chapel of the Masonic movement. With the help of the sea skills and wealth of the Templars, the St. Clair Grand Master tried to found a new Jerusalem in the New World, landing with 300 colonists, first in what is now Nova Scotia and then in New England, more than 90 years before Columbus.
Andrew Sinclair, a direct descendant of Prince Henry St. Clair, is a leading novelist, historian, and filmmaker and lives in London. He did graduate work at Harvard and Columbia before teaching at Cambridge and London. His books include biographies of Jack London, Warren Harding, and Che Guevera. His most recent work is the epic novel Blood and Kin.
