Written by the author of "Cloak of the Illuminati", Mary Magdalene: The Illuminator goes beyond ideas mentioned in "The Da Vinci Code" and frankly discusses the Biblical figure of Mary Magdalene as teacher, illuminator, and spiritual visionary. From possible alchemical secrets of Mary Magdalene's annointing oil, to the connections that Gnostics and Cathars held to her, to her parallel role to that of ancient goddesses such as Ishtar and Isis, extraterrestrial presence and influence in the Bible and Gnostic texts, how the Knights Templar wrote secret teachings of Jesus and Mary in religious graffiti at Domme, France and much more. Black-and-white photographs illustrate this holistic exploration of Mary Magdalene in spiritual and metaphysical contexts far beyond mainstream theological imagination.
