The Priory of Sion

The Priory of SionIntroduction

Modern hoax or the most powerful and secretive cabal in history? Opinions on the mysterious Priory of Sion - in its native French, the Prieuré de Sion - are polarised between these two extremes.

If the Priory of Sion's claims are true, it has existed for almost 1,000 years and has counted some of the greatest names in history - Nostradamus, Leonardo da Vinci, Jean Cocteau, claimed by the Priory of Sion as one of its Grand MastersIsaac Newton and, nearer our own time, Victor Hugo and Jean Cocteau - in its ranks. It claims to have been behind some of the most momentous events in European history, from the First Crusade to the rise to power of General de Gaulle – and is now working behind the scenes to fulfil its ultimate goal, the creation of a United States of Europe.

On the other hand, critics argue that the Priory of Sion does not exist outside of the imaginations of a handful of French mythmakers - either eccentric fantasists or confidence tricksters - who have invented the Priory and all its works.

President de GaulleThe Priory of Sion first became known on the international stage in the phenomenal bestsellers by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (1982) and The Messianic Legacy (1986). The Priory is most often associated with the mysteries centred on the French village of Rennes-le-Château - but, as Temple of Mysteries' Priory of Sion files hope to show, there is much more to the story of this most elusive secret society.
