Holy Blood and Holy Grail Schlimazel 1982-2017

The uncritical repetition of fake facts in The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail continue to go unchecked by many authors in many books 1982-2017.

Most people who believe in conspiracy theories don’t usually put things to the critical test because they believe conventional history is wrong and the real truth is suppressed by ruling academic establishments.

The recent updating of the Priory of Sion Bibliography has brought to attention the example of Rabanus as reported in The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail.

Footnote 16 to chapter 12 of the book states that the earliest written form of the tradition of Mary Magdalene fleeing to Marseilles dates from just before 856 AD, by Rabanus, Archbishop of Mainz.

Baigent, Lincoln and Leigh mistook Rabanus with Pseudo-Rabanus who flourished during the 15th century.

The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail does not mention the earlier tradition of Mary Magdalene’s death in Ephesus and re-interment at Constantinople in 899 AD.

Jacobus de Voragine believed that Mary Magdalene was married to the Apostle John, not to Jesus Christ.

The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail remains a prime example of sloppy research and product of distorted thinking.
