Why do the Ark of the Covenant, Mary's reliquary box, and Jesus' Coffer all have the same imagery? Was the Ark the container of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments, or the Chalice? Does the image of the Shroud of Turin contain a bioelectric field? These questions and others will be explored in The Ark, The Shroud, and Mary.

Author Philip Gardiner recently won the acclaim of both scholars and the reading public with The Serpent Grail, which united three of the most mysterious objects known to man--the Grail, Elixir and Philosophers Stone. Now, in this unique and thought-provoking work Gardiner proves that the Ark of the Covenant, the Shroud of Turin, and Mary are united in ways never before imagined.

Travelling across the world, from Rome to India, Portugal to Egypt, Gardiner uncovers the trail of the Ark and finds that it does not lead to Ethiopia, as many believe, but instead in a direction that nobody could have imagined. The trail of the Ark takes Gardiner on a hunt into the very heart of an ancient secret society with clandestine meetings in far-off lands. Uniting the myth, tradition, and language of the Ark with the Shroud of Turin, Gardiner then goes on to re-date it, reveal how it was made, and identify whose image it actually recreates. Through his new-found contacts in the world of secret societies, Gardiner then shows how this incredible secret was protected by a dual brotherhood throughout time and was the secret source of the enlightenment spoken of by numerous orders from the Sufis to the Knights Templar. The Ark, The Shroud, and Mary outshines The Da Vinci Code for the simple reason that it is the factual story of one man's fight to uncover the truth.

Books reviews
At times I thought I had a handle on what the author was trying to convey, and then at other times, I read along totally confused. I don't think I am unintelligent, and I have read hundreds of books on similar topics, but this one is really difficult to wade through.
I always thought I was a relatively intelligent person, but I'm not sure I can continue this book. I'm female, 65+' Catholic raised and I've been in college all my life. I feel I am not intelligent to break through to whatever level if Education is required. I'm up on the subject matter but the dogma, mysticism or left- right philosophy to read I'm going to try and email Mr. Gardiner to find out the pre-requisites for reading the book.
Gardiner's thesis is balance, yet his perspective ignores Evil.
Though he rightly identifies enlightenment as the purpose of life,
even revelation finds meaning only in a ccntext of Good and Evil.
Oneness transcends duality, yet the bodhisattva returns to
support Positivity.
Gardiner promotes serpent cults, even though they incarnate Evil.
Because Satan is the master of deception, Devolution has turned
mythology and religion into 90% propaganda. Nevertheless
Gardiner sees the 10% with some clarity. Thus the Ark is indeed
another name for the Gateway to Heaven, the Golden Dawn. But
in Israel it was set back as the Door of Perception, a new
beginning for the spiritual colony of Palestine after the fall
of Egypt. Thus the Bible narrative points to a much older story.
That the Ark is "lost" indicates our present Devolution. The
key to Truth is Fate, yet apparantly no one can resist the
temptations of Free Will. No book will change that, only
intervention. Perhaps 2012 will be the transformation Jesus
thought his Fate would usher in. Better "late" than never.
Been waiting for this ever since I heard about it and I'm glad I did. Gardiner unpicks the whole thing, from the Ark in Ethiopia to the making of the Shroud and then some. The twists and turns of this book reveal a mindset that just wouldn't give in and Gardiner thinks of alternatives that others simply have not thought of. The etymology of the words had me sitting back and wondering and then he goes on some crazy field trip and meets up with the brotherhood who land a real scorcher of a revelation that ought to be in a film - it so made sense.

Anybody who loves bloodline theories, intrigue and sacred secrets will be in awe at the simple truths in this book that have passed everybody by. His discoveries are tremendous and if you don't get a few shocks reading this excellent book then you have missed something IMO. Well researched, beautifully written and exhilerating. I'm gonna buy the DVD now!
Phillip Gardiner is a GENIUS researcher who masterfully and tenaciously breaks open some of the most allusive Esoterism (spiritual science) to this day! If anyone wants or needs inside information on Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Freemasonry, Knight Templar, Sufism, Numerology, Sacred Geometry, etymological codes, etc., THIS is the book! "The Ark, Shroud, and Mary: The Untold Truths About the Relics of the Bible" is probably one of the most fascinating reads I've come across this year! This interlinks all of us as a society of humanity to an ancient legacy!
I was stunned that this writer can reveal these secrets and get them into the marktplace in the USA. Somebody is asleep at the switch of censorship and surely this magnum opus will not be overlooked for long. Once the word is out this book will be banned, burned, and/or buried in the vaults of the Vatican again! Read the most comprehensive manuscript on hidden knowledge since the Dead Sea Scrolls were released decades ago; yet sure to ignite a firestorm of controversy in orthodox circles, too, as well as a celebration of consciousness in unorthodox ones. This is such a marvelous time to be alive on planet earth when the truth is sweeping the lies clean as if it were a flood of biblical proportions!
