      • The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail
      • Michael Baigent
      • Paperback, 576 pages, 178 x 110 mm. A nineteenth century French priest discovers something in his mountain village at the foot of The Pyrenees, which enables him to amass and spend a fortune of millions of pounds. The tale seems to begin with buried treasure and then turns into an unprecedented historical detective story - a modern Grail quest leading back through cryptically coded parchments, secret societies, the Knights Templar, the Cathar heretics of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and a dynasty of obscure French kings deposed more than 1,300 years ago. The author's conclusions are persuasive: at the core is not material riches, but a secret - a secret of explosive and controversial proportions, which radiates out from the little Pyrenees village all the way to contemporary politics and the entire edifice of the Christian faith.

      • Der Untergang des Templerordens ist eine der größten Tragödien der Kirchengeschichte. Zwischen 1307 und 1314 machten weltliche und religiöse Mächte dem christlichen Militärorden den Prozess, ließen mehr als 1000 Tempel-Ritter umbringen und brachten den einflussreichen Orden zu Fall. Doch wie haltbar sind die Vorwürfe, die man den Templern machte? Welche Motive hatten ihre Gegner? Andreas Beck schiebt Gerüchte und Legende beiseite, präsentiert umfangreiches Faktenmaterial und arbeitet den größten Justizmord des Mittelalters spannend und schrittweise neu auf.

      Birkhan: Das Geheimwissen der Kelten. Hardback

      • Das Geheimwissen der Kelten.
      • Helmut Birkhan, 2014
      • Die Kelten gelten heute oft als ebenso geheimnisvolles Barbarenvolk Alteuropas, das man gerne als die eigenen Ahnen ansieht. Sehr oft verbindet man sie auch mit einem ganz speziellen, angeblich sehr naturnahen Geheimwissen. Das Buch untersucht die allfälligen kulturellen und historischen Spuren dieses Geheimwissens, dessen Träger im Altertum der Priesterstand der Druiden war. Als das Druidentum mit der Christianisierung obsolet wurde, erscheinen vor allem die Barden als Verwalter geheimen Wissens, das sich besonders in Wales geradezu zu einer Art Bardenideologie und -theologie entwickelte. Diese leben bis heute in nationalwalisischen Veranstaltungen, bei denen dann auch wieder Druiden als historistische Reminiszenz auftreten, aber auch in bestimmten Freimaurerorden weiter.

      Broodbank: The Making of the Middle Sea : A History of the Mediterranean from the Beginning to the Emergence of the Classical World. Paperback

      !
      • The Making of the Middle Sea : A History of the Mediterranean from the Beginning to the Emergence of the Classical World.
      • Paperback, 672 pages, 387 illustrations, 49 in colour. The Mediterranean has been for millennia one of the global cockpits of human endeavour. World-class interpretations exist of its Classical and subsequent history, but there has been remarkably little holistic exploration of how its societies, culture and economies first came into being, despite the fact that almost all the fundamental developments originated well before 500 bc. This book is the first full, interpretive synthesis for a generation on the rise of the Mediterranean world from its beginning, before the emergence of our own species, up to the threshold of Classical times. Extensively illustrated and ranging across disciplines, subject matter and chronology from early humans and the origins of farming and metallurgy to the rise of civilizations Egyptian, Levantine, Hispanic, Minoan, Mycenaean, Phoenician, Etruscan, early Greek the book is a masterpiece of archaeological and historical writing.

      !
      • Song of the Vikings. Snorri and the Making of Norse Myths.
      • Brown, Nancy Marie
      • Hardback, 256 pages, Illustrations, 242 x 160 mm. Much like Greek and Roman mythology, Norse myths are still with us. Famous storytellers from JRR Tolkien to Neil Gaiman have drawn their inspiration from the long-haired, mead-drinking, marauding and pillaging Vikings. Their creator is a thirteenth-century Icelandic chieftain by the name of Snorri Sturluson. Like Homer, Snorri was a bard, writing down and embellishing the folklore and pagan legends of medieval Scandinavia. Unlike Homer, Snorri was a man of the world--a wily political power player, one of the richest men in Iceland who came close to ruling it, and even closer to betraying it... In Song of the Vikings, award-winning author Nancy Marie Brown brings Snorri Sturluson's story to life in a richly textured narrative that draws on newly available sources.
