In a pioneering study Baigent and Leigh construct an alternative history of religion and thought which begins with the Hermeticism of first century Alexandria and describes its fascinating pathways through Europe over the ensuing centuries. Along the way there are marvellous tales of individuals, including the Elizabethan magician John Dee and the Franciscan friar and alchemist Roger Bacon.

A must read for anyone interested in the Holy Grail, alternative Christianity and The Da Vinci Code
