    1. I read this book and ate up every last bit of speculation, theory, and downright invention. The photos creeped me out, and I daydreamed about the possibility that the Knights Templar really had links to Jesus Christ, and that the Freemasons were more than just a bunch of weird old guys that did some boring, yet secret, junk in an old building downtown. Years later, a Freemason mistakenly left a lengthy message on our answering machine in Palm Desert, California. He gave intricate, specific detai [...]


    2. I must have picked this book up around the time it came out, which would have made me a sophomore in high school.When I became a "real" historian, I came to realize just how much of it was hyperbolic tripe but even as a youth, I understood that 90% was speculation (to put it kindly).The two things it did do for me were:1. Reveal a Dark Age world of Europe that I hadn't encountered before.2. Gave the alternate-history buff in me a whole new set of "what-ifs" to think about.


    3. The fact that I read horribly written books about templars, and things of that ilk, is one of my shameful secrets. I don't believe a word that I've read, but they suck me in. That part in the Dan Brown book (don't remember if it was DaVinci or Angels) where he was listing off the books in that guy's library? I have all those booksOh the shame :)This book, as all similar books, could be about 200-300 pages shorter as they restate their theories in multiple ways. They also all seem to use the same [...]


    4. I originally approached the book with the idea that even if the "history" was wonky, it will be entertaining to read. I was sorely disappointed. It was uphill all the way, especially in the middle, when you get bogged down in all those dynasties.However, I'm giving it two stars for the chapters towards the end. The speculations in there have given the myth-lover in me have one more go at the Bible, and the enigmatic figure of the Christ.Overall opinion? A boring book with some entertaining specu [...]


    5. I read The Da Vinci Code and it made me want to read Holy Blood, Holy Grail, which was apparently the only book Dan Brown based his own research on.Only problem with all the "research"? Holy Blood, Holy Grail is at best laughable. They'll tell you something like, "Person A knew Person B who was at a play that Person C also attended, though we have no knowledge they actually knew each other. Furthermore, Person B was born in Italy and from all that we know that Person C passed on essential inform [...]


    6. I first read this about 15 years ago. It seems that Dan Brown may also have done so.The original book, and the revised edition I read several years later, put forward compelling arguments in favour of an alternative history of the established religious version propounded in canonical teaching. Although cleared of plagiarism, Dan Brown appears to have drawn heavily on much of the source material as did the authors of 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail'.The authors at no point claim that their theories are f [...]


    7. Reading this book is like slogging uphill through a mudslide - after a while you lose track of where you are, and it doesn't seem worth the effort to keep going.


    8. Speculation, yes. But even the bible contains much speculation (yes, that is my opinion and you don't need to agree with me, that is fine and I am perfectly ok with that). The basis for my opinion is as follows. The new testament wasn't even written until 60 yrs after Jesus' death, by people who most likely never heard him speak. It is really difficult to guess what sort of motives they may have had or wether they were trying very hard to shape the New Testament stories according to the old test [...]


    9. Jesus was born of a virgin, raised the dead, turned water into wine, and was resurrected after his crucifixion. OK. BUT SAYING THAT HE HAD CHILDREN IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING IN THE WORLD!I read this book when it was first published and it's speculations have fertilized my thinking since then. Even if the thesis is wrong, the wild, richly detailed landscape you cross with it is thought-provoking and conspiratorially satisfying.In the '90s some boson claimed to have fraudulently placed the prio [...]


    10. ما أروع هذا الكتاب،، واحد من تلك الكتب الشاملة العميقة،، الدسمة،، والوافية يتناول الكتاب بالتفصيل تاريخ (فرسان الهيكل) و (دير صهيون) وماضيهم وجذورهم وحُكمهم وملوكهم وحروبهم وطوائفهم وكيفية انبثاق (الماسونية) عنهم،، وقد يصدمنا الكتاب عندما يلفت انتباهنا إلى أصولهم وتطورهم ب [...]


    11. While much of the evidence in this has been debunked since it's writing, and most of the research has been called into question, this is an interesting book nonetheless, with much more depth, twists and turns than The DaVinci code, which stole many of these author's ideas. There are many concepts in this book, some are very dubious, and others seem downright plausible. If one approaches this with the right spirit; which is to say, with an open mind, but with the desire to do lots of independent [...]


    12. The book Holy Blood, Holy Grail is a book that presents many points of evidence showing fallacies in the Christian religion. It mainly delves into the depths of the secrets of the Knights Templar and the order of Sion, who allegedly created and later broke off from the Knights Templar. "Could 'ET IN ARCADIA EGO' also perhaps be an anagram? Could the verb have been omitted so that the inscription would consist only of certain precise letters?" (Baigent, 46). The authors use mechanics like this to [...]


    13. Alrighty.Here's another tin foil hat conspiracy book. Holy Blood Holy Grail was dragged into English court as part of the authors complaint of plagiarism against Dan Brown's The Manet CodeHAHAHADa Vinci.My joke and the lawsuit and the book are all similar to Dan Brown's Oeuvre by being boring and poorly written. That might have been Leigh and Baigent's best argument.What offends me about this book is that it takes something that is fundamentally interesting (the history of the gospels, the histo [...]


    14. This is book is a great example of academic dishonesty. The first half of the book is very well documented, and sets the reader up for the idea that the two authors are dealing with hard facts. When the conjectures and meat of the book begin though the sources stop getting cited, and assumptions are made which have no basis except for the authors fantastical logic. (Saying things like, of course this is well documented (but where?), or setting up as a premise something that they admit is unknown [...]


    15. A remarkable work of fiction. Just because the authors didn't intend it to be fiction is neither here nor there. It's a thrilling romp all the same, and a gazillion times better than that wretched rip-off, The Da Vinci Code.It's well written and extensivley researched. The conclusions that the author's draw from that research are, of course, a little on the zany side. But there's something exquisitely Indiana Jones about the whole thing. If you're a sensitive religious sort, then this probably i [...]


    16. Probably the oldest surviving piece of hot gossip still in circulation: Jesus had an affair with Mary Magdalene, which resulted in a child. Members of the post-Dan-Brown generation may have trouble believing this, but I hadn't heard a single rumour before I read this book. Really!


    17. I wasn't suprised at all that the authors of this book sued Dan Brown over the DaVinci Code. He could have had this book open and used whole sections of it. The plot of this book actually follows the DaVinci Code in many aspects. What I enjoyed about this book is the research. It does take a few chances, and it clearly states that it is speculative history, but it made me see the Gospels in a whole other way. I can't recommend it enough.


    18. It's been a while now since I read this book out of curiosity after reading the Da Vinci Code. I admit that when I read the Da Vinci Code did posses a historical background gained by the school books, encyclopedias, and usual historic books that I could borrow in the library. I heard many thoughts and rumors about this book which helped me have my own opinion about it. Nevertheless I have to say that I don't blindly believe every letter written on this work. Firstly I think that the authors did [...]


    19. أسطورة الكأس تعبر إحدى الميثولوجيا المسيحية حيث يعتقد أنها الكأس التي استخدمها المسيح في العشاء الأخير وقام يوسف الرامي بجمع دم المسيح من على الصليب و كانت لها قوة إعجازية كبيرة لكن مؤلفي هذا الكتاب يعتقدون أن الكأس أو الإناء هو رحم المجدلية الذي إحتوى دم المسيح و هو دلالة ع [...]


    20. This book should be under fiction instead of religion, as the conspiracy put forth in it is so obviously a bunch of hookum that anyone who actually reads the book should be able to see that their sole source is playing them for reasons that never become clear. This is the sort of book that brings out the worst sort of conspiracy nuts -- those who will believe it because they want it to be true, not because there is actual proof or overwhelming evidence that it true. It is worth reading ONLY if y [...]


    21. I found the theories and 'supporting ideas' quite interesting. That is, up until it seriously conflicted with my beliefs. From then on, I couldn't buy a word they said, even when I reminded myself that it was just someone's wild theory. I suppose that says something about my ability to be open minded. I'm open minded, so long as I feel its plausible. This was a very interesting side effect of reading the book. It caused me to re-evaluate why I feel so strongly about some bible 'facts' and not ot [...]


    22. شيفرة دافنشي هي ما اعادت إثارته، إلى درجة ان ناشري الكتاب قاضوا ناشري دافنشي وبراون بتهمة السرقة الأدبية!إذا وجبت المقارنة فسأصوت للتسلية في الشيفرة، اما في هذا الكتاب الذي أريد له ان يظهر بلبوس علمي فلا يمكن الركون إليه تحت اي منطق، مجرد نسج لاحتمالات متتالية لاقناعك بنتيج [...]


    23. I read this book to my father long before Dan Browns ‘Da Vinci Code’ was published. Whether it is historically accurate or not I'm still not sure, but there are plenty of references provided should the reader wish to check up on facts. I've since read reports that some of the references are questionable, but when you are writing about a subject, in a way that some people would consider blasphemous, it's bound to cause upset and have people say such things.I sometimes found it heavy going, bu [...]


    24. What a load of bunk! This offends me because it is so speculative that the authors should have called it fiction, and been honest about it.


    25. I remember reading this in 1983 and being quite shocked about it at the time. Later it became the basis for Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code (2003) whether he acknowledged that or not.Saying goodbye to several dozen books due to a water damage incident and I thought I'd write at least a little memorial to each of them and why I kept them around.


    26. Me lo sono divorato, molto ma molto prima di quella zozzeria del codice Da Vinci: scritto come un reportage giornalistico di alto livello su un argomento tabu', ben documentato e soprattutto credibile.E poi si scopre che era tutta una truffa, e che Plantard aveva truffato gli autori del libro e non solo, raccontando un sacco di panzane e fabbricando le prove ad hoc. Sob.


    27. Well, that was entertaining nonsense at least. Completely discredited as being based on a hoax, but still mostly quite enjoyable. It’s fascinating to experience conspiracy minds at work.


    28. **Kind of contains a spolier. Not really though if you've ever heard of this book.**Hmmm. So. Well then.I'd heard about this book for a while. I don't really care if their hypotheses are true. I didn't really care going into it. So I'm not going to debate the if/then theological doctrinal stuff. It's moot for me.I started out reading this book, open-minded, and ready to hear something completely different than all the other "Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and they had babies" books. Because [...]


    29. This is possibly one of the most successful conspiracy-theory books ever written, at least among those published and marketed as “non-fiction.” There are reasons for this. It is well-written, engaging, relatively even in tone, and accessible to most readers. Unlike many, especially those which deal in “occult” theories of history, the authors do not carry an obvious commitment to one or another group’s version of the “truth” that will drive away readers who do not share their belie [...]


    30. Holy Blood, Holy Grail is about a secret society that tries to restore a certain bloodline. The book Holy Blood, Holy Grail begins with a French priest in a region of France called the Languedoc. He finds some strange transcripts there, which later leads him to become rich. The investigation of the authors' though, leads to something more amazing than they ever thought before. They discover the region was closely associated with the Knight's Templar, leading them to investigate that lead. This l [...]
