BBC News reports the Vatican is about to publish a book which is "expected to shed light on the demise of the Knights Templar, a Christian military order from the Middle Ages."
"The book is based on a document known as the Chinon parchment, found in the Vatican Secret Archives six years ago after years of being incorrectly filed." And the crux of it? it seems Jacques de Moley, leader of the Knights Templar, was not a heretic as has long been thought.
So there you go, the Knights Templars weren't medieval Gnostics or a surviving sect of ancient Egyptian Freemasons or Mary Magdalene Mystery Cult worshippers as the Historical Jesus reconstruction industry has led us to believe. But no doubt fans of "The DaVinci Code" and "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" will see this confession as a Vatican plot to hide the real truth from you. Catholics, sorry, you're not gonna win this either way. LOL. Read the full story at BBC News.
