Summary

The enigmatic relationship between the Cathars and the Templars is explained. In the 13th century, the Catholic Church repressed the Cathars, who had settled in the French Pyrenees. The Cathars' practices had some similarities with ancient Egyptian belief systems, including Dying Consciously, which was also at the heart of ancient Egyptian belief systems. Later, the Nazi Otto Rahn became interested in Catharism and sent investigators to France. They uncovered the ancient cave sanctuaries of the Cathars, and found statues of Egyptian gods! Was the Grail perhaps a sacred Egyptian artifact? Here, for the first time, all the key elements of a timeless puzzle are pieced together.
