The Wanderings of the Grail

In the 13th century, the Church came down against the Cathars, who had settled in the French Pyrenees. The Cathars practiced a belief in which "perfects" acted as priests that educated their followers in a specific system of believes and who aided the believers in "dying consciously", which was also at heart of ancient Egyptian belief systems. Both the Egyptians and the Cathars felt they had to "cheat" the cycle of reincarnation (the cycle of evil), and "ascend" to the world of light.

In the 20th century, both local amateur archaeologists and German Nazis such as Otto Rahn became interested in Catharism and sent investigators to the region. The Germans specifically were searching for the Holy Grail. They uncovered the ancient sanctuaries of the Cathars - often caves in perilous locations - and found Egyptian artefacts in them: statues of the Egyptian gods. Was the Grail perhaps a sacred Egyptian artefact?

One such researcher was Déodat Roché, nicknamed the Cathar Pope. As magistrate of Arques, he came across Egyptian relics scattered in his town which had been known as a major Cathar stronghold. He continued his researches further afield, in the heartland of the Cathars, where he learnt how others, including a priest named Glory, had found an ancient Egyptian statue in a cave, which was the centre of worship of the Cathars.

After World War II, these findings were quickly destined to be forgotten, because of the Nazi connection. Hence, the truth of the Cathar religion could once again not be made public. For the first time, all the key ingredients will be pieced together, and the enigmatic relationship between the Cathars and the Templars highlighted.
