William F. Mann is an officer of the Knights Templar of Canada’s Grand Executive Committee, a member of its Grand Council, and serves as the Sovereign Great Priory’s Grand Archivist. The author of The Knights Templar in the New World and The Templar Meridians, he lives in Milton, Ontario, Canada.
Nearly 100 years before Columbus arrived in the New World, Scottish prince Henry Sinclair, Earl of Orkney, sailed to what is now Nova Scotia, where his presence was recorded by Micmac Indians. With evidence from archaeological sites and legends handed down by the Templar order to the Freemasons, author William F. Mann has rediscovered the site of the settlement established by Sinclair and his Templar followers, where they found a safe refuge for the Grail in the New World.
William F. Mann shows that the great treasure of the Templars consists of knowledge they discovered in the Holy Land during the Crusades which enabled them to establish accurate latitudinal and longitudinal positions long before the foundations of the current science were laid. This allowed them to reach the New World, where they established secret settlements and mining operations that gave them a limitless supply of precious metals and a military edge over their opponents.
William Mann examines new evidence of the Knights Templar in the New World long before Columbus and their mission to protect the Holy Bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. He reveals the secret settlements they built as they moved westward across North America along with other related theories.
