“Holy Grail Across the Atlantic offers some fascinating interpretations of early Canadian history that you may prefer to doubt – but will not be able to forget! When the fortress of MontsAgur, reputed sanctuary of the great religious treasure of the Templars was sacked by forces of the Inquisition in 1244, did the Templars manage to escape with the Holy Grail? Legends insist that the Holy Grail was taken to safety before the doomed citadel was stormed.
Was a castle in Nova Scotia the new haven for the Holy Grail? Is the famous and mysterious “money pit” on Oak Island in Mahone Bay connected with a desperate and courageous attempt to save the Holy Grail? Was Samuel de Champlain a secret agent for the Grail Dynasty, and did his maps and journals purposely obscure the location of the Grail’s secret refuge in Acadia? And later on, was the Holy Grail transported to a new haven in Montreal founded by a mysterious secret society?” 002494 $60
