Canonized as a saint on the eve of World War I, Joan of Arc remains France’s national heroine and a symbol of French pride. The nineteen-year old leader of the French army was burnt as a witch at the stake. Or was she? One investigator has uncovered controversial evidence that Joan may have not only survived her execution, but went on to live a full life. Then, prophecies and predictions of the apocalypse are common among many religions. In Christian belief, the end of the world will be marked by the return of Christ and the construction of a great holy city, “a New Jerusalem,” with a sacred temple at its heart. Author Adrian Gilbert believes this New Jerusalem may have already been built to fulfil the vision of the Knights Templar and the Freemasons – in the very city of London.
