Key to the Sacred Pattern : The Untold Story of Rennes-Le-Chateau Overview

The mystery of Rennes-le-Château, the tiny village perched on a mountain top in the foothills of the Pyrenees, and the sudden, unexplained wealth of its flamboyant priest, Béranger Saunière, are explored in this highly entertaining book. Henry Lincoln sets down, for the first time, the dramatic story of his thirty years of delving into one of the strangest mysteries of modern times to show how the proofs finally lead to an astonishing revelation. Key to the Sacred Pattern takes us further into the hidden byways marked out by our ancestors and sets it upon provable and demonstrable foundations. The boundaries of the original riddle of Rennes-le-Château are extended, from the Pyrenees, to Britanny, and the Baltic Sea. Our ancestors were not, as we thought, primitive and unenlightened but far more gifted than we have ever imagined. Here is the lifting of the veil on a mysterious and dramatic legacy.
