The Crusades, Templar Knights, the Holy Grail, the philosopher's stone, great battles, secrecy, astrology and science... a rigorous and up-to-date analysis of the great mysteries and enigmas of medieval times.
The Templar Knights, the Holy Grail, the table of Solomon, banned books, the secrets of Alchemy, the Cathars, witchcraft, the great pilgrimages, the secret of Columbus, medieval hermetic guilds... These are just a few of the medieval mysteries that can be found in the pages of this book. In this essay, Tomé Martinez invites us to make a voyage of discovery through the less known, and most striking trails of history of the middle ages. To path through these areas of knowledge the author takes hold of the more recent archaeological and documentary discoveries, and gives us a renewed, and surprising interpretation of the middle ages. Now, we understand the importance of its historical context. Although it had its shadows, also had its lights, and many of the big ideas and innovations that arise from the Renaissance are, as we shall see, rooted in medieval times. For the first time in a long time we have a more accurate vision of some of the most relevant episodes of this historical context; but also a verification that many ideas, or events that we thought to be real, weren't at all, while other stories that we had thought fantasy, and invented happened indeed, history disguised as myth or legend. We have also have discovered a host of inventions, scientific and technological findings that show the valuable contributions of a time that we thought of dark and gloomy.
