New revised and expanded 2015 edition. ** Mary Magdalene in Provence, France ** Ralph Ellis follows the trail of mythology and reveals compelling circumstantial evidence that Mary Magdalene did travel to France, and that her presence there has left its mark on the history of the region. Ralph then presents further information suggesting that the legacy of Mary Magdalene in Provence 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 and scientific rationality that underpinned the Enlightenment Era. An addition to the 'King Jesus Trilogy'.
