9780892817108: The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar: Solving the Oak Island Mystery

A compelling argument that connects the lost treasure of the Knights Templar to the mysterious money pit on Oak Island, Nova Scotia, that has baffled treasure hunters for two centuries

· Fascinating occult detective work linking the Cathars, the Scottish Masons, and Renne-le-Chateau to the elusive treasure pit on Oak Island

· Draws on new evidence recently unearthed in Italy, France, and Scotland to provide a compelling solution to one of the world's most enduring mysteries

When the Order of Knights Templar was ruthlessly dissolved in 1307 by King Philip the Fair of France it possessed immense wealth and political power, yet none of the treasure the Templars amassed has ever been found. Their treasure is rumored to contain artifacts of spiritual significance retrieved by the order during the Crusades, including the genealogies of David and Jesus and documents that trace these bloodlines into the royal bloodlines of Merovingian France.

Placing a Scottish presence in the New World a century before Columbus, Steven Sora paints a credible scenario that the Sinclair clan of Scotland transported the wealth of the Templars--entrusted to them as the Masonic heirs of the order--to a remote island off the shores of present-day Nova Scotia. The mysterious money pit there is commonly believed to have been built before 1497 and has guarded its secret contents tenaciously despite two centuries of determined efforts to unearth it. All of these efforts (one even financed by American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt) have failed, thanks to an elaborate system of booby traps, false beaches, hidden drains, and other hazards of remarkable ingenuity and technological complexity.

Review:

When the Order of Knights Templar was destroyed in 1307, the secret society supposedly had vast wealth that was rumored to include the genealogies of David and Jesus and other religious artifacts as well as your run-of-the-mill gold and jewels. Over 200 years ago, the site of an elaborate vault was discovered by three teenagers on Oak Island, Nova Scotia, which was determined to have been built sometime between the 14th and 16th centuries. Author Steven Sora has been investigating both the Order and the vault for over 17 years, and The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar details his fascinating theory of where the Templar's hoard went and what is buried under Oak Island. If you enjoy real-life mystery, the intrigues of secret societies, or thoughtfully researched revisionist history, this one's for you. --P. Randall Cohan

From the Back Cover:

KNIGHTS TEMPLAR / OCCULT / HISTORY

When the Order of Knights Templar was ruthlessly dissolved by King Philip the Fair of France in 1307, it possessed immense wealth and political power. Yet none of the treasure amassed by the Templars has ever been found. This lost treasure is rumored to have contained artifacts of spiritual significance that were retrieved by the order during the Crusades, including the genealogies of David and Jesus, as well as documents that trace these bloodlines into the royal bloodlines of Merovingian France--documents that were perceived by those in power in medieval Europe as a threat to the established order of church and state.

But what connects this treasure to the Oak Island Money Pit--so-called because of both the priceless treasure it may house and the extraordinary sums of money spent in futile attempts to excavate it--that has baffled treasure hunters for over two hundred years? Using new-found historical evidence that places a Scottish presence in the New World a century before Columbus, Steven Sora presents a fascinating and convincing scenario that has the Sinclair clan of Scotland transporting the wealth of the Templars--entrusted to them as the Masonic heirs of the order--to a remote island off the shores of present-day Nova Scotia. The mysterious money pit there is commonly believed to have been built before 1497 and has guarded its secret tenaciously despite two centuries of determined efforts to unearth it. All of these efforts (one even financed by American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt) have failed, thanks to an elaborate system of booby traps, false beaches, hidden drains, and other hazards of remarkable ingenuity and technological complexity created by its builders. Even in recent years, despite the increasingly sophisticated tools at our disposal, the secret of the Oak Island Money Pit has remained beyond our reach.

At least until now.

STEVEN SORA has been researching unusual historical enigmas since 1982. He lives in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar is his first book.
