    1. To be frank with everyone, I just read it because this work has food for thought in its rather paranoic and delusional approach to the subject matter. The writer is (or rather was), and I quote:a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland [] the Chevalier de St. Germain, he is attached to the European Council of Princes as the Jacobite Historiographer Royal [] Conservation Counsultant to the Fine Art Trade Guild [] A Knight Templar of St. Anthony and Prior of the Sacred Kindred of St. Colu [...]

    2. Very informative book with some brilliant theories. Who doesn't love the Knights Templar and the Lord of the Rings. Combine the two with awesome historical finds, great lore and wonderful reviewing skills and you have a must have for any one seeking to understand the past that was stripped from us long ago by the victors of the Christian Wars.

    3. Finally the beginning of the threads so we can unwind the skein of false hoods. Although too much space is spent in the confusion of patriarchal inheritence instead of matrilineal descent, especially after having clearly established in this and other works the importance of Tanist descent, all in all I use so often as references, it is in tatters.

    4. I read into this book hoping to delve further into the mytho's of JRR Tolkien's Legenderium. The book sort of did that and yet it also opened up several other doorways for further exploration. The book also covered some ground with the grail mythos. If you are looking for something entirely new on Tolkien you will find yourself surprised with some new revelations. The Grail mysteries go further back as well, they go back all the way to the Middle East.The book covers a lot of territory. First le [...]

    5. I picked this book up without knowing anything about it at a local used book store, and being a folklore-curious Tolkien fan, was very intrigued by the synopsis on the back. This book is by no means just about the quest for the Grail—though everything connects back to that—rather, it weaves an intricate web of connection between history, folklore, and religion that spans centuries of culture.While this book is definitely worth a read, and I enjoyed it thoroughly, Gardner is of questionable a [...]

    6. There is a lot of history covered in this book. If you fell asleep in history class, this book is not for you.

    7. lots of interesting information but so badly presented I couldn't keep in mind what the whole thing was about.
