Dr. Kathleen Ball: A Grail Quest, the Knights Templar in Brazil
Grail Quests often begin with what seems like normal travel adventures, but then suddenly turn into divine synchronistic events that makes one feel as though they’re being guided by the Universe. I was to find out, two years later, that many local people knew about this cave. Teenagers even partied in it, as we could see from their graffiti, so what was the big secret? The cave’s location was obviously not a secret, but apparently no one understood the significance of that specific cross. What the cave was carved out for turned out to be the secret, helping me to later understand why the Templars dug it out in the middle of nowhere. I returned that evening to our pousada a different person. Something had fundamentally changed within me. I felt that somehow, this discovery was part of my destiny. The Universe had unmistakably directed me to this cave.
“Did the Knights Templar reach Brazil? This is the enigmatic question boldly asked and beautifully answered in this fascinating quest of discovery that results in firm evidence that, yes, they did indeed reach the Americas long before Columbus. The author brings in her writing an exciting sense of mystery and imagination tempered beautifully by her academic background. An essential addition to the ancient mysteries bookshelf.”
