Knights Templar and the Holy Grail

A compelling argument that connects the lost treasure of the Knights Templar to the mysterious money pit on Oak Island, Nova Scotia, that has baffled treasure hunters for two centuries.
Fascinating occult detective work linking the Cathars, the Scottish Masons, and Renne-le-Chateau to the elusive treasure pit on Oak Island. Draws on new evidence recently unearthed in Italy, France, and Scotland to provide a compelling solution to one of the world's most enduring mysteries.
When the Order of Knights Templar was ruthlessly dissolved in 1307 by King Philip the Fair of France it possessed immense wealth and political power, yet none of the treasure the Templars amassed has ever been found.   Their treasure is rumoured to contain artefacts of spiritual significance retrieved by the order during the Crusades, including the genealogies of David and Jesus and documents that trace these bloodlines into the royal bloodlines of Merovingian France.
Placing a Scottish presence in the New World a century before Columbus, Steven Sora paints a credible scenario that has the Sinclair clan of Scotland transporting the wealth of the Templars -- entrusted to them as the Masonic heirs of the order -- to a remote island off the shores of present-day Nova Scotia.   The mysterious money pit there is commonly believed to have been built before 1497 and has guarded its secret contents tenaciously despite two centuries of determined efforts to unearth it.   All of these efforts (one even financed by American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt) have failed, thanks to an elaborate system of booby traps, false beaches, hidden drains, and other hazards of remarkable ingenuity and technological complexity.

The author, April 17, 1999
The Mystery of the Money Pit
The treasure search on Oak Island has been going on for 200 years.   Elaborate booby traps that include false beaches, clog-proof drains, flooding tunnels and deceptive codes inscribed on stones have foiled everything that modern man has come up with - so far.
From the first time I read about the treasure search on Oak Island I was hooked.    The theories of just who could construct such an elaborate underground vault range from Captain Kidd to Sir Francis Drake.
After years of research, I discovered a secret expedition, financed by a powerful Scottish family, undertaken to hide incalculable wealth and explosive secrets.  The current assault on the Money Pit may be the greatest ever mounted, and 1999 may be the year the Money Pit yields its treasures and secrets.

About the Author
Steven Sora has been researching unusual historical enigmas since 1982.   He lives in Easton, Pennsylvania.   The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar is his first book.

I can't put it down
I was given this book by a friend to read, and I find since receiving it I can't put it down. I've always been somewhat interested in this sort of true adventure genre, as well as history and 'occult history' (for lack of a better term).   So far, at half way through, I find myself thoroughly enjoying the theories put out, as well as the historical background presented about pre-Columbus explorers and the Americas.    I would think that this book has defiantly opened my eyes to a new genre of literature I've previously avoided.

Great, fast-paced read!
Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar has gone beyond Holy Blood, Holy Grail by tracing the Templar fleet to the Americas.   The book presents conclusive evidence that the guardian of the Templars did save their secrets and that the treasure of the Templars may some day emerge.

 

A decade ago, Michael Bradley published the Canadian best seller, Holy Grail Across the Atlantic (Hounslow Press, 1988), presenting the astounding evidence that a European settlement in Canada had been established in Nova Scotia ninety-four years before Columbus and ninety-nine years before John Cabot.    Incredibly, medieval documents and maps showed that this settlement had been founded by refugee Knights Templar from Scotland - knights who had been created for the sole purpose of guarding the Holy Grail.   Bradley presented evidence that these Grail-believing religious refugees and their knightly protectors had been instrumental in discovering, settling, and influencing the development of New France and, later, the fledgling American Republic.   The book was automatically ridiculed by conventional North American historians, while at the same time serving as the model for European works (e.g. The Sword and the Grail by Britain's Andrew Sinclair). Michael Bradley's investigation stimulated some serious professional and academic researchers to join his quest to find further evidence of the Knights Templar in Canada and the United States.   Now, in 1998, comes the publication of the long-awaited sequel to Holy Grail Across the Atlantic - Grail Knights of North America. Realising from medieval documents that the initial Nova Scotia refuge of ad 1398 must have harboured many Grail believers, and that the secret colony must have expanded, Bradley began to trace evidence of Grail Knights from Nova Scotia, through New Brunswick to the St. Lawrence River, and on to the Great Lakes as far as Niagara, New York State, and central Pennsylvania.    Evidence of their presence has been uncovered on both the Canadian and American sides of this great waterway.   Bradley poses compelling questions about his discoveries, and offers plausible and provocative answers as we travel with him and his companions (both academic and amateur) along the trail of the Grail Knights of North America.
About the Author
Michael Bradley, born in the United States and now residing in Canada and France, has written seventeen books, including two novels.   A former lecturer at Dalhousie University's Centre for African Studies, he has been invited to give guest lecture series at Kennedy-King College (Chicago), Yale University, The Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies, Vanderbilt University, the University of Toronto, and York University (Toronto).
