The search for a theory to explain the enigma of the Turin Shroud continues. Many people want the shroud to be proof of Christ's mission, but Knight and Lomas argue that it is not. They propose that behind the shroud is a tale of pride, greed, power-lust and suffering. It had been prophesied that the Messiah would return shortly after 1230 AD. Jaques de Molay was born in 1244, became a Templar in 1265 and Grand Master in 1297. The Templars regarded themselves as the guardians of the secret teachings of Jesus. In 1307 Molay was arrested at the instigation of the Pope, who was alarmed at the spread of this influence. He was crucified. Using the latest scientific techniques, the authors seek to prove that the shroud Molay was wrapped in is the one now known as the Turin Shroud.
