You must have a different edition of the book than I do. In my book
he says there is a real Priory of Sion. There is. He says it was
founded in 1099. That is open to debate but it was not regestered as
a legal organization in France until...I can't remember the exact
date, think it was in the 1950's. Most researchers think that is when
it was formed. He says the Dossiers Secrets were discovered in 1975.
That is ture but most researchers think they are modern forgeries
planted there. And he says there is a real Opus Dei. There is.
I don't see where he says the historical facts in the book are true.
He does say the descriptions of artwork and architecture are
accurate. Which are not?
