Re: [Gnosticism2] Re: Gnostics and Templars
- I agree that fiction should never be accepted as fact, however, The Gospel of Mary does contain the phrase "And he used to kiss her often on the ... Unfortunately we may never know what the last word was. Also I remember reading somewhere about the 3 Mary's in a work called the Gnostic bible which can easily be purchased off of gnosis. orgs' site for $22. where it states that there were three Mary's in the bible... Jesus' mother, his sister, and his wife. Although nothing has ever been mentioned in scripture! Perhaps Dan Brown found this piece of info as well. Both of D. Browns' work appear to be anti- catholic in nature, which would suggest that there was a definite motive behind his writings, however misinformed. The mentions in Holy Blood Holy Grail are also consistant with the book Born in Blood which discusses the history of the Templars and FreeMasonry. The Dossiers Secrets is also an interesting piece of work and was discussed in cunjunction with D.Browns' book on none other than... The History Channel. Thanks... Thoughts? Comments?

First I want to point out that what an author has a character say and
what the narrator says in creating a fictional reality in a work of
fiction is not necessarily the author's opinion about history or
I think Brown created his own history based loosely on the holy blood
theory and added some names and dates from ancient history. I don't
think he had any idea the book would be read as anything other than
fiction or he might have been a little more careful with the ancient
