Michael Baigent, best-selling author of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, former Freemasonry Today editor, and speculative theorist passed away last night.
Brother Christopher Hodapp, author of one of the best books on Freemasonry – Freemasons for Dummies, wrote that “Brother Baigent’s books literally changed the way the world thought, and was arguably responsible for Dan Brown’s success with the Da Vinci Code. His thought provoking works will be missed.”
Brother Baigent (February 27, 1948 – June 17, 2013) authored and co-authored a ton of of books that questioned the generally accepted perception we have of religion and history. One of his best known works is as co-author with Richard Leigh of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail.
