Was Mary Magdalene murdered? Did the Catholic Church conspire to eradicate the Holy Bloodline from existence?

To some Mary Magdalene was the wife or consort of Jesus Christ. The infamous Da Vinci Code has firmly placed this idea into the popular arena along with the idea of a Holy Bloodline descended from Jesus and Mary.

In this unique film we journey to places never before researched in connection with this story. We venture into the heart of ancient Lincoln, England, and uncover a tale so mysterious, so at odds with the accepted norm, that we are forced to question everything we previously held to be true. We track down unknown texts, journey on a treasure hunt across Lincoln county and discover the final resting place of Mary Magdalene herself.

* See the locations filmed for The Da Vinci Code movie and find an English Jerusalem.

* Come with us as we go beneath the streets into ancient tunnels to find the tomb.

* Explore little known Templar sites.

* Watch as Dan Green goes clue by clue to unravel a magnificent trail of codes and ciphers.

Join us on an amazing journey into a world full of synchronicity.

Special Features include a tour inside the infamous Templar Prison and the Lincoln Cathedral where the Da Vinci Code was filmed.

On the face of it, you wouldn’t think that an hour of expressionless narration in a barely intelligible north England accent about totally obscure codes and connections could hold one’s interest…but it did. Strangely enough, the video journey through the castles, churches, graveyards, streets and underground passageways of Lincolnshire, supplemented with art, architecture, music and rather good video graphics, made the story of a church plot to wipe out the bloodline of Jesus and Mary almost plausible.

I found myself about equally divided between appreciation of the research that went into connecting the dots, and pained amusement at the lengths to which my credulity was being stretched. Curiously, about the only connection that Dan Green didn’t draw was in a painting by Rene d’Anjou, the King of Naples and Grandmaster of the Priory of Sion, who spent his life looking for the tomb of the Magdalene. It shows a knight standing by a monument whose inscription warns against “bitter water.” The name Mary is a translation of the Hebrew, Miriam, which means “bitter water.”

If you enjoy books like The Da Vinci Code and Holy Blood, Holy Grail, you will probably find “The Murder of Mary Magdalene” quite intriguing.
