London England, Little, Brown & Company, 1996. First Edition, Binding: Cloth, Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo 0316879975 Hardback Hardcover. The Tomb of God. It began as an intriguing piece of puzzle-solving - and ended with the discovery of the greatest secret of all. Dissatisfied with the explanations of previous researchers, the authors applied mathematical logic to the enduring mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau and the 'treasure' alleged to be buried there. They were sceptical. They assumed the enigma would wither under such scrutiny. It did not. The quest began with an investigation into the activities of a group of nineteenth-century priests who had become embroiled in the legend. These priests had grown rich because of their involvement, and had resolutely maintained the anonymity of their paymasters, but in 1992 an extraaordinary clue came to light which suggested the priests were engaged in activities markedly at odds with traditional Roman Catholic priests. tentatively the trail was pursued. As the research progressed a series of paintings was unearthed which incorporated a cryptic, obscure geometry; a set of interrelating shapes with a very direct link to the priests' habitat and spiritual role. Through the centuries an astonishing pattern emerged - a web of concealment on maps, in fine art, on tombstones - which defied coincidence and pointed to one very specific location. Illustrated. 513 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences.
