The Cathedral of Truth 


Merovingian Knights, the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, and Doubting Thomas: the Identical Twin of Jesus   

VAST IN SCOPE and daring, this original story takes the reader far away from conventional norms into a world of motorcycle adventure, Asperger's Syndrome, and the murky waters of secret societies dedicated to keeping the real message of Jesus alive. On the shoulders of such works as Holy Blood, Holy Grail and The Da Vinci Code, and using the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas, Cathedral of Truth goes deeper into other aspects of the real history of Jesus, such as surviving the crucifixion, having an identical twin brother Doubting Thomas (Jude), the Merovingian line of Kings, and the history and surrent whereabouts of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. It is far from an academic work yet not quite a traditional adventure story; it is a new genre where hidden religious history is brought to light in an engaging and unforgettable manner.

Rolland Hellmantle, a freelance computer writer based in Hong Kong and sufferer of Asperger's Syndrome, finds himself drawn into a journey to find a Dutch priest living in the Philippines who has information concerning a buried map said to show the location of a lost scroll written by Jesus and his twin brother Thomas. Hellmantle's grandfather, a French Legionaire and researcher in family history, was said to have buried a map during the Battle of Dien Bien Phu in northern Vietnam just before he was killed. So when Hellmantle's uncle receives a letter written in 1954 but only recently discovered among the papers of a relative that indicates a Dutchman preaching on the northern island of the Philippines has information of the whereabouts of the map, Hellmantle and his cousin D'Aqs, a missionary recovering from malaria after a year in Burma, set out on motorcycles to find the Dutchman.

Hellmantle, still suffering from a recent trauma involving the death of his identical twin brother and his father, has gone further into the depths of extremism, spending days and weeks in his home reading history books and others research papers, letting the daily needs of living fall by the wayside, including his freelance magazine work. In an effort to help him return to some semblance of normalcy and safety, his cousin D'Aqs Grosseteste accompanies him during his motorcycle trip. D'Aqs had known Hellmantle twenty-five years earlier at boarding school but had not seen him since. It is obvious that his cousin is a functionaing autistic, but D'Aqs knows that without his help Hellmantle might be in danger. D'Aqs is sc eptical of Hellmantle's belief that the Hellmantle family are blood descendents of Jesus and the Merovingian Line of Kings who ruled France for over 600 years, but after pieces begin to fall into place and more facts come to light D'Aqs finds himself moving farther away from the dogma of Rome and the doctrines of his Anglican denomination.

For the reader the experience of the Cathedral of Truth is a similar journey, one of doubt and disbelief at first, then to consideration and contemplation, and finally to a different way of seeing the events in the New Testament. Loaded with factual data weaned from countless history books, the Book of Jeremiah and the Book of Genesis take on a new meaning. Long hidden events come to light, such as Jesus surviving the crucifixion, the very real bloodline of Jesus and the families dedicated to protest the royal bloodline, and how His Beloved Disciple was not John but rather his twin brother Jude, known to history as Doubting Thomas.

Whether this novel crosses genres or simply creates a new genre, the combination of reckless living, Asperger's Syndrome, motorcycle adventure, and settings that include Vietnam, India, Hong Kong and the Philippines, the book will leave you with your mind stretched with simple but penetrating factual data. For centuries this history was communicated and handed down through the literature of Grail Lore, where the Holy Grail was created as a metaphor to tell of the history of the Desposyni to protect against a violent backlash by Rome, but now it is time to expose the past crimes of the Roman Catholic Church and reveal the real history of Jesus.

Well written, fast-paced and with a knack for communicating history in a clear manner, Trapp McFlynn found his niche and has become a primary desemminator of these hidden truths thus becoming a harbringer of a new age. Cathedral of Truth is set to send ripples of discontent and anger and awe to the reading public across the world. Now being translated into several languages, this book will find its rightful place in the canon of literature of historical non-fiction and adventure fiction.
