    Merlin's Doomsday Chronicles and Prophecies

    2 years ago

    There are far more "Doomsday Chronicles" than the ones that are hyped now, featuring Nostradamus or the Mayan Calendar. They mostly regenerate very ancient symbols of religion, myth and magic and they don't forecast necessarily an Apocalypse 2012 scenario. One of the finest examples is Merlin's...

    The Flying Dutchman: Facts and Legends

    7 years ago

    The legend of the Flying Dutchman is one of those stories that the crew might pass along when a ship is in trouble. There are various versions of the story, all with similarities shared with the legends and myths that preceded it. But one thing is for sure: the Flying Dutchman is a ghost ship that...

    The Holy Sepulchre of Bruges-la-Morte

    2 years ago

    Visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Bruges-La-Morte, the Venice of the North, is a strange and morbid experience. Not only because the Holy Grave is to be found here, or a statue of the dead Christ, but also because of another well hidden treasure: a Splinter of the True Cross.

    5 years ago

    Here is all the information you need, right out of the so-called prophecies of Nostradamus that are in reality a code, to start a true treasure hunt and find the Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar somewhere in the realms of the abbey of Orval, in Belgium.

    6 years ago

    Chrétien de Troyes was a French poet who was the first to write about the Grail, but what is the Grail... and where can the Grail be? Some believe the Grail is the Holy Blood of Christ, or his royal bloodline... and this Holy Blood was brought to Bruges, by the Templars.

    The famous Ghent Altarpiece or the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, completed in 1432 by Flemish Primitive Jan Van Eyck, is surrounded by many mysteries concerning the Holy Blood & the Holy Grail...

    The Holy Blood of Bruges, a New Jerusalem

    2 years ago

    The Holy Blood of Christ seems to have turned medieval Bruges (in Flanders, Belgium) into a Holy City. It's what, since the 19th century, made tourism popular in Bruges. But maybe this Holy City is not as holy as it seems...

    What faith should we place in predictions of Nostradamus concerning a black president and the end of the world in 2012? The answer is: none! But nevertheless, there are circulating on the internet some really idiotic but also possibly dangerous rumours, featuring some so-called "Nostradamus...

    Located in the part of Belgium that is known as Flanders, the Cathedral of Ghent - St. Bavo's - is something like Loch Ness, or the castle where the legendary Holy Grail or the Treasure of the Templars was hidden.
