Editorial Reviews

Has the Holy Grail been in America all along?

In 1898, a Minnesota farmer clearing trees from his field uprooted a large stone covered with mysterious runes that tell a story of land acquisition and murder. The stone allegedly dates back to 1362. Initially thought to be a hoax, new evidence suggests the find could be real, and a clue that the Knights Templar discovered America 100 years before Columbus, perhaps bringing with them history's greatest treasure...the Holy Grail. Follow the clues as experts use erosion studies on the rune stone and match symbols in Templar ruins all over Europe to support this theory. Stones with similar markings have been found on islands across the Atlantic Ocean, and in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Is it possible the Knights Templar, long thought to have been massacred, escaped on an incredible journey and were leaving clues to the whereabouts of the stone? Find out in the HISTORY two-hour special, Holy Grail in America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Templars settle America in 1362?!! January 2, 2010
Format:DVD
This revolutionary and fascinating documentary wanders all over the literal and figurative map, linking the Holy Grail, old Jerusalem, the Knights Templar, the FreeMasons, the Kensington Stone, Columbus, George Washington, the hooked X rune, the Newport tower, Cistercian monks, the Norsemen, sacred geometry, the money pit, and a host of other medieval, rune-laden tablets discovered all over North America. Perhaps too broad in scope, this DVD does offer solid history-shattering evidence that America was settled and claimed by Templars in 1362.
Theories on the reach of the Templars have flourished in recent years, thanks to Dan Brown and others, but never before has so much evidence been assembled to strongly suggest that the Templars, accompanied by a Cistercian monk (who new both Scandinavian and Templar runes), sailed their fleet of ships to America in 1362 to lay claim to the Mississippi headwaters as the New Jerusalem. Did they bring with them the Holy Grail and other treasures from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and bury them in the heartland of America in the 14th century?
This History Channel documentary gives strong evidence that the Templar fleet left Europe and sailed to America. They made their way on a 14-day journey from the East Coast through the Great Lakes to what is now Kensington, MN. Furthermore, even Columbus' father was a Templar who may have told him of the existence of the New World, still a secret in the 15th century known only to the Knights Templar. From Soloman's Temple to Minnesota?
Yes, I now believe they came to America in 1362!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating February 6, 2010
By Linda
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a lengthy but absorbing documentary. It is obvious that a great deal of research and assembling of background material went into it. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Knights Templar, Vikings, and voyages of discovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars The History channel does it again! May 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So much of what we think we know is changing SO fast. The History channel is playing it's part in that unfolding process admirably. Our perception of the world is dependent on integrating the information we have about it. Change the information, and the world is magically transformed. I thought for the greater part of my life that the West was all cowboys and indians and now I get hit with this! Reviewing history in the information age sure is a wild ride.

I particularly enjoyed this presentation being so comprehensive. It was like watching a good mystery movie with more than a few twists and turns along the way. Very entertaining and informative. Even if you just have a passing interest in the Templars this thought provoking presentation is well worth your time and money. I wouldn't say the same for 'The Rosslyn Frequency.' (NOT a History Channel offering!)- take a pass on that one.
I've found so many History Channel productions to be first rate, I rarely hesitate to give them a whirl. You won't be disappointed with 'Holy Grail in America.'

We watched this on the history channel. It's fun to watch it again. There is so much information. Takes several times of watching it to absorb all the info.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting family history October 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent look at the history of the Knights Templar, the Holy Grail, and the involvement of the Sinclair family members. I purchased three of them - one for each of our sons. The Da Vinci Code provided a fictional account - using Rosslyn Chapel. This film provided insight to other possibilities. I highly recommend this interesting video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Grail in America February 27, 2010
Format:DVD
How DOES a slab of rock with runes (the Kensington Runestone) get from Scandinavia to middle America? Who hauled it here and why? Intrigue, mystery, fact vs fiction - this documentary is packed full of twists and turns and provides powerful evidence that the trail to the Holy Grail was not, is not easily traveled. A masterful movie you won't want to miss!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking and Amazing! February 4, 2011
By Shay
Format:DVD
I just sat down to watch this with my family and was amazed from the first minute. I have always had a casual interest in the Knights Templar, but never have I seen anything like this! Even for someone who does not believe what is presented, just the history, and the work that went into digging up all the clues and artifacts, and connecting the dots is well worth that watch.
As for me personally, I am whole heartedly convinced after watching and conducting my own research. 10 of 10 stars!
