About the Author:

Michael Baigent was born in New Zealand in 1948 and obtained a degree in psychology from Canterbury University. At one point he gave up a successful career in photojournalism to devote his time to researching the Templars for a film project. Since 1976 he has lived in England.
Richard Leigh is a novelist and short-story writer with postgraduate degrees in comparative literature and a thorough knowledge of history, philosophy, psychology, and esoterica. He has been working for some years as a university lecturer in the United States, Canada, and Britain.
Henry Lincoln is an author and filmmaker and has written for television.

Book Description Delacorte Press, New York, New York, 2004. Quarter Cloth. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Reprint. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. New York: Delacorte, 2004. Reprint. 8vo. Quarter cloth, 489 pp. including index. Includes black and white photographs. "Did Jesus marry and father a child? That is just one of the questions raised in this startling and provocative book, originally published in 1982 and inspiring such works as Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. Are Christ's descendents alive today, the authors wonder, and is it even possible he did not die on the cross? Unearthing and examining arcane documents, the book looks into such contentions as the likelihood that Jesus's descendents are in the French Merovingian dynasty, protected by a secret society known as the Priory of Sion of which Leonardo da Vinci, Victor Hugo, and Jean Cocteau have been Grand Masters and that the Knights Templar were their military arm." A new book in a new dust jacket, protected with a mylar cover. Bookseller Inventory # KT-B738-01
