From the bloodline of Jesus to the Plot to End the World
THE HOLY BLOOD & THE HOLY GRAIL
December 1, 1982
A nineteenth century French priest discovers something in his mountain village which enables him to amass and spend a fortune. The tale seems to begin with buried treasure; then turns into an unprecedented historical detective story. The author's conclusions are persuasive: at the core is not material riches but a secret - a secret of explosive and controversial proportions, which radiates out from the little Pyrenees village all the way to contemporary politics and the entire edifice of the Christian faith. It involves nothing less than... the Holy Grail.
RACING TOWARDS ARMAGEDDON
Exposing the conspiracy of religious extremists in the Holy Land and their efforts to bring about the end of the world in our lifetime. Baigent exposes the many diverse, public, and clandestine figures who are driving this perilous messianic message forward, and poses a pressing question: can we really afford to remain oblivious much longer?
January 20, 2023
A study of the problems presented by sceptics in connection with scientific and historical research, which reviews evidence to provide logical answers to questionable theories concerning the connection between the Orion star belt and the pyramids, the evolutionary position of Lucy the ape, and the true situation of Altlantis.
THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS DECEPTION
The Dead Sea Scrolls were found in caves 20 miles east of Jerusalem in 1947 and 1956. Now Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh have succeeded in uncovering what has been described as 'the academic scandal par excellence of the twentieth century': the story of how and why up to 75 per cent of the eight hundred ancient Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts, hidden for some nineteen centuries, have, until very recently, remained concealed from the rest of the world.
THE MESSIANIC LEGACY
August 1, 1996
The Messianic Legacy offers enthralling new investigations into the shadowy society of the 'Prieure de Sion' - 'The Guardians of the Holy Grail' - as the authors discover the murky world of politics, finance, freemasonry, and religion that exists beneath the most solid and conservative seeming of European institutions: the Church. The ominous global conspiracy of disinformations they uncovered ensures that The Messianic Legacy is a work of biblical detection even more significant than The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail.

By July of 1944, the Third Reich's days were numbered. Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, a general staff insider with open eyes (and access to the Führer), was convinced that assassinating Hitler was the only way to prevent the destruction of the Fatherland and the deaths of millions. On July 20, he hid a bomb-stuffed briefcase at a high-level meeting.
Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh deliver an exhilarating and definitive portrait of the anti-Nazi movement that almost killed Hitler.
ELIXIR AND THE STONE
September 25, 1997
In this study Baigent and Leigh construct an alternative history of religion and thought which begins with the Hermeticism of 1st century Alexandria and describes its pathways through Europe over the ensuing centuries. Along the way there are tales of individuals, including the Elizabethan magician John Dee and the Franciscan friar and alchemist Roger Bacon.
November 2, 2000
After the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathars of south-west France in 1208, a Spanish monk - later canonized as St Dominic - took up the cudgels by establishing a kind of secret police to ferret out heresy - thus began the infamous Inquisition. The Inquisition offers a fascinating narrative account of one of the most influential and horrifying movements in the history of western Europe.
ASTROLOGY IN ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIA
June 1, 1995
Drawing upon translations of the Nineveh library tablets as well as many other ancient sources, Michael Baigent reveals the roots of modern astrology in the Babylonian science of omens. He explains how astrology in the Babylonian and Assyrian empires was concerned not with individuals but with the king and the state.
January 23, 1992
This book provides a practical approach to the often neglected area of international astrology and explains how the future of the world and the fortune of whole countries is predicted. This book demonstrates, with many examples, how each nation has its own charts which reveal the country's future. It looks back to 1984 and recounts such events as the changes in international relations concerning Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union and the Middle East.
THE TEMPLE AND THE LODGE
April 6, 2000
The Temple and the Lodge charts the birth of Freemasonry through the survival of Templar traditions, through currents of European thought, through the mystery surrounding Rosslyn chapel, and through an elite cadre of aristocrats attached as personal bodyguards to the French king. The influence of Freemasonry emerges as key facto in the formation of the United States of America as an embodiment of the ideal 'Masonic Republic'.
THE JESUS PAPERS
March 1, 2007
What if everything we have been told about the origins of Christianity is a lie?
What if a small group had always known the truth and had kept it hidden . . . until now?
What if there is evidence that Jesus Christ survived the crucifixion?
With two additional decades of research behind him, Baigent's The Jesus Papers presents explosive new evidence that challenges everything we know about the life and death of Jesus.
