Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince have long been fascinated by the conspiracies surrounding secret knowledge of Jesus, Mary Magdalene and John the Baptist, much of which centred on the activities of individuals and groups allegedly connected with the Priory of Sion. Now, in The Sion Revelation, Picknett and Prince look more closely at this controversial organisation, said to be the ancient protector of great religious and historical secrets. Suggesting that their apparently bizarre belief systems actually hide real activity on behalf of military and political movers and shakers, The Sion Revelation will reveal just how important the Priory of Sion really is - and why we should all care...

'Picknett and Prince are first-class storytellers and their magical mystery tour is totally enthralling' - DAILY MAIL for the Stargate Conspiracy.From the Author:
The case recently fought in the High Court in London between two of the authors of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail and the UK publishers of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code has (aside from exploring the legal issues relating to the copyrighting of ideas and theories) highlighted the controversy surrounding the subject of our book, the enigmatic secret society called the Priory of Sion.
Opinions about the Priory have become polarised between those who accept the version portrayed in The Da Vinci Code (and The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail) – a centuries old secret society dedicated to protecting the bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalene – and those who dismiss it is a simple hoax perpetrated by a lone French fantasist, Pierre Plantard (which seems to have become the prevailing view in the media).
However, from our own, decade-long, research into – and experience of - the Priory, we have long been aware that both extremes fail to answer important and fundamental questions about both the society and the shadowy M. Plantard. This was our starting part for The Sion Revelation, which outlines the reasons why, in our view, neither the ‘bloodline protectors’ nor ‘hoax’ explanations are satisfactory, and then goes on to explore the Priory’s real nature and agenda – which takes us into some very murky areas indeed.
We have been careful to include ALL the facts and information about the Priory – proponents of the opposing theories tend to select only those that fit their view – and place it into its proper context in the world of European politics and esoteric underground.
(Incidentally, we confess to being puzzled by a certain reader review that suggests that our book deals with a plot to restore the Stuarts to the British throne. The reviewer seems to have confused it with someone else’s book, as, apart from some brief criticisms of the self-style Prince Michael of Albany’s claims to Stuart descent, this is not part of ours!)
