Princess of Provence and Princess of the Dutch House of Orange.
Did Mary Magdalene travel to Provence, in France? Ralph Ellis follows the trail of mythology and reveals compelling circumstantial evidence that she did, and that her presence there has left its mark on the history of the region. In addition, Ralph suggests that the legacy of Mary Magdalene was bequeathed upon the city of Orange in southern France, the city that was central to the Royal Dutch House of Orange, and thus central to the entire Reformation and Enlightenment movement.
The book then goes on to explore the Orange Enlightenment and the Age of Reason, the twin religious reforms that created the modern rational and technical world that we live in today. But this era of rationality and reason is now threatened by forces of darkness that seek to extinguish the gains of the Enlightenment. Will the twin fundamentalist forces of Environmentalism and Islam take us back to the Dark Ages, and into a new era of fear, ignorance and oppression? In this section, Ralph Ellis tackles some ancient and modern taboos, with his characteristic hard-hitting style; each and every politically-correct stone is overturned, in this robust defence of the intellectual freedoms of the Enlightenment.
An addendum to the King Jesus Trilogy. Perhaps read after: "King Jesus".
