Editorial Reviews

Review

"A mind-expanding investigation involving many disregarded, fascinating historical facts and connections." (Henry Berry, The Midwest Book Review, August 2004)

". . . you'll find much to ponder in this very detailed exploration. . . . this is an engaging study--one that definitely belongs on the reading list." (Mark Williams, New Connexions, Mar-Apr 2005)

". . . so many fascinating subjects are woven into this book that it could serve as a study guide of esoteric topics." (Janet Brennan, Fate, Nov 2004)

"I recommend it especially to those who have an interest in the Knights Templar." (Michelle Hilton, Circle of Stones, July 2004)

“Bill Mann blends Pythagorean geometry, hermetic wisdom, and secrets of Freemasonry to reveal a blueprint to the final resting place of the Holy Grail. From the Tarot to Tolkien, from Medieval France to modern day Nova Scotia, the reader is initiated into mysteries often hidden in plain sight.” (Steven Sora, author of The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar)

“A work of insight and discovery of interest to all Masons and seekers of treasures and secrets.” (Andrew Sinclair, author of The Sword and the Grail)

“Utterly fascinating reading. Anyone who loves subtle detective stories will be enthralled by Bill Mann’s research.” (Michael Bradley, author of Holy Grail Across the Atlantic)

TEMPLARS / ANCIENT MYSTERIES

“Bill Mann blends Pythagorean geometry, hermetic wisdom, and secrets of Freemasonry to reveal a blueprint to the final resting place of the Holy Grail. From the Tarot to Tolkien, from Medieval France to modern day Nova Scotia, the reader is initiated into mysteries often hidden in plain sight.”
--Steven Sora, author of The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar

“A work of insight and discovery that will be of interest to all Masons and seekers of treasures and secrets.”
--Andrew Sinclair, author of The Sword and the Grail

“Utterly fascinating reading. Anyone who loves subtle detective stories will be enthralled by Bill Mann’s research.”
--Michael Bradley, author of Holy Grail Across the Atlantic

In 1398, almost one hundred years before Columbus arrived in the New World, the Scottish prince Henry Sinclair, Earl of Orkney, sailed to what is today Nova Scotia, where his presence was recorded by Mi’kmaq Indian legends about Glooskap. This was the same Prince Henry Sinclair who offered refuge to the Knights Templar fleeing the persecution unleashed against the Order by French king Philip the Fair early in the fourteenth century. With evidence from archaeological sites, indigenous legend, and sacred geometry handed down by the Templar Order to the Freemasons, author William F. Mann has now rediscovered the site of the settlement established by Sinclair and his Templar followers in the New World. Here they found a safe refuge for the Grail--the holy bloodline connecting the House of David to the Merovingian Dynasty through the descendants of Jesus and Mary Magdalene--until the British exiled all the Acadians in 1755.

WILLIAM F. MANN's late great-uncle was a Supreme Grand Master of the Knights Templar of Canada and it was from him that the author received the key that would eventually unlock this mystery. He lives in Oakville, Ontario.

I don't think that Templars actually built hill, but hey!
Alen Lovrencic
The closest equivalent I could think of to this book would be the rantings of a paranoid schizophrenic, and I say that without malice, simply as a statement of fact.

Imagine my disappointment when I found out it was an EXACT copy of the book I had already read.

This book is an EXACT copy of Mann's previous book, The Labyrinth of the Grail. It has a different title, different cover and different publisher but the content is EXACTLY the same. This author should be ashamed of himself. I bought his Labyrinth book awhile back, read it (wasn't that good and quite confusing) and when he came out with this new one I thought it would have new information in it. Imagine my disappointment when I found out it was an EXACT copy of the book I had already read. Shame on this author for trying to trick people into buying his books. I'll never buy another one.

Format: Paperback
I forced myself to finish this book to justify the expense of buying it. I was hoping to learn more about the theory of Oak Island being linked to the Knights Templars, but after reading this book, I was ready to write off the entire thing. Mann has done nothing more than toss together every possible source of esoterica; King Arthur, the Templars, the Great Pyramid, Greek Myth... , and use it as a grab-bag for his theories. He finds "connections" in everything without thinking of alternative explanations and creates such a confusing and complicated web of motives and actions that collapses under its own weight. Mann's evidence consists of a single stone and his own interpretation of rock formations and trees. He uses his own convictions as proof of theories, such as interpreting the shepardess in Poussin's painting as being pregnant or that Glooscap was Sinclair. I was surprised he did not try to link this with the JFK assasination! The closest equivalent I could think of to this book would be the rantings of a paranoid schizophrenic, and I say that without malice, simply as a statement of fact. I strongly urge people NOT to buy this book. I would have given it no stars if I was allowed to.

Format: Paperback
Unfortunately, many masonic authors are doing the worst possible disservice to the craft and to history, this being a perfect example. The collectective gibberish of Mr. Mann is simply a disgrace; full of personal wishful thinking, of make-believe, of sensational argumentation, it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth that such rubbish has found its way to print. Applying the formula used by others (Lincoln, Baigent et al), together with the need to acquire a bit of heritage, Mr. Mann embarks on an self-embarassing journey that has nothing to do with the Knights Templars. No doubt there is merit in the theory that the Knights had landed on the shores of North America, however to apply sacred geometry in the manner described by Mr Mann stretches the patience of informed historians with sufficient cultural and intellectual depth.

The deragatory manner with which Mr. Mann (on page 12) refers to an eminent authority like Mr. Laurence Gardner, just shows that he neither has the depth nor the intellectual maturity to make a worthwhile contribution to the Knights Templars, to the craft and to history.

Don't waste your hard earned cash on this turkey.

Mann is worse than Leigh and Baigent for building his theories on unproven supposition and then proceeding as if that theory was a fact from which he can springboard his next theory. He has no citations for these dubious "facts" but does for bits and pieces that are not so important to the central premise.

Sometimes he flatly states he's going on a "feeling" he got while visiting a place or remembering the configuration of his grandfather's Masonic ring.....

I came to this book with a strong desire to believe the Zeno Narrative but like anything else, I need facts and evidence to substantiate the claim. I'm not seeing anything new here. If this book was the only source for the Sinclair Voyage I would run screaming from the entire premise.

The other thing that annoys me here - the very idea that a medeival expedition reached North America is compelling enough for me. Why does it have to be entwined with endless theories on the bloodline of Jesus, sacred geometry and the Holy Grail? Does everything have to spin off from the DaVinci Code these days? Establish the expedition as an indisputable fact first, then go for the esoteric stuff if you really have to.

I finally gave up when Mr. Mann tried, on page 70, to convince me that "Aspotogan is an anagram for Jehosophat if one substitutes J (Jehovah) for G (Geometry), combines the to h's to make an 'n' and considers the 'e' as an 'a' as in the Greek alphabet".

Sure - and my name is really Albert Einstein if one merely substitutes "Albert" for my first name and "Einstien" for my last name.

It's always a big red flag when you see so many sentences that start with "Could it be that.....?

I wish I had read Amazon's reader reviews of this book before buying it. What a complete waste of time. The author uses every excuse for a coincidence he can find to support his theory (read "wishful thinking") resulting in confusion & incredulity for the reader. Many times the book was headed towared the garbage can, but I finished it in hopes it would eventually lead somewhere, but it did not. What a disappointment.
