Henry Lincoln, born in London in 1930 whose original name was Henry Soskin, passed away on February 23, 2022. His life’s work was filled with fantastic research and treasure hunting for the mysteries surrounding the Holy Grail and the French village of Rennes-le-Château, of which in the 70’s Lincoln did two Chronicle BBC documentaries on the same mysteries of Rennes-le-Chateau. In the 1980s, he co-authored and authored a series of books of which The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail was the most popular, and became the inspiration for Dan Brown’s 2003 best-selling novel, The Da Vinci Code.
In 1968, Henry Lincoln stumbled across a book about the priest of a small village who supposedly discovered a great treasure. “The Accursed Treasure” written by Gérard de Sède. The book revealed latin parchments and intriguing clues to a mysterious Royal treasure and after reading the book, he began his own quest to find out all he could about the mysterious surrounding the many things the book contained. As a writer of film scripts, Henry began researching and in 1971 made the film in the documentary below, with the BBC, titled- “The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem”. It is a very well documented film and one that answers a lot of questions, and at the same time leaves you asking more.
Two other films followed – “The Priest, the Painter, and the Devil” in 1974 and “The Shadow of the Templars” in 1979. Together, these Chronicle films provide the first glimpse available to the English-speaking world of the mystery of Rennes-le-Château.
After finishing the second documentary, Henry was inspired by this baffling enigma, which was rapidly becoming a phenomenon, and published his 1982 best-seller “Holy Blood, Holy Grail” with Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh. The non-fiction title followed research through the Knights Templar, the Priory of Sion, and the Merovingian kings of France, finally proposing the hypothesis that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene. In 2003, Dan Brown’s novel “The Da Vinci Code” popularized and fictionalized Lincoln’s research for a worldwide audience.

Henry Lincoln was a true seeker of the truth and if a piece didn’t fit, he didn’t try to shove it in, he tossed it aside and continued to search. Whether he would find a myth or a fact, he labled it properly. His quest was to find the hidden secrets and who hid them, and why. Lincoln not only dedicated his life time to such noble work, he left us all videos to see this work free of charge. I hope you will find his tireless efforts as remarkable as I have.
I first found Henry Lincolns work years ago and took notes and was amazed at his findings. I was never one to see things in latitude and longitude and numerology, etc. But I can stand on a hill and see how things connect… by observing. Henry Lincoln, could do both, and he had a strong sixth sense with memory banks filled with data from the time period. His presentation and unique manner in which he presents his journey and shows you how to see what others can’t see and hear what others can’t hear will be greatly missed. He was working on more projects and when he knew he was reaching the age where another would have to carry on in his place, he found a qualified apprentice to carry on the work,Allysha Lavino . Remember…there is always more to discover.
