PROFESSING TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS, AND EXCHANGED THE GLORY OF THE INCORRUPTIBLE GOD INTO AN IMAGE MADE LIKE CORRUPTIBLE MAN…
Under the auspices of a troubled papal hierarchy, Paul Lazarus, a former British Special Forces operative turned priest and Michelina Andrea Franceschi, a beautiful scholar of the Vatican Secret Archives, wage a battle for Rome in a race against time to unravel heresy deep within the heart of the Vatican.
They discover that a long-forgotten Brotherhood, a clandestine super-secret society regarding itself as more Catholic than the Pope himself, controls the Holy See through the hierarchy of the Pope.
Seeking to reform the church from within, the Brotherhood plots the restoration of a modern day Holy Roman Empire – to usher in the reign of a Papal Caesar as absolute Universal Monarch over a double hegemony of church and empire – ruling the world from the new Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.
A rule they believe is predestined by God in accordance with the infamous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, an international conspiracy on an epic scale to take control of the world’s governments and financial institutions and threatens to send the world hurtling towards the Apocalypse costing the lives of millions.
Together they unravel a mystery that will shake the foundations of a church complicit in deciphering the very DNA of God – from blood found on the burial sindon and headcloth of a man who was crucified and entombed in Jerusalem in the first century AD.
Can they prevent the greatest apostasy in the history of the church or is it simply the fulfilment of End-Times prophecies of truly biblical proportions?
