THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLERAs seen on The Joe Rogan Expertise!This program features a Foreword written and skim by Graham Hancock.A groundbreaking dive into the position psychedelics have performed within the origins of Western civilization, and the real-life quest for the Holy Grail that might shake the Church to its foundations.Probably the most influential spiritual historian of the twentieth century, Huston Smith, as soon as referred to it because the “best-kept secret” in historical past. Did the Historic Greeks use medicine to search out God? And did the earliest Christians inherit the identical, secret custom? A profound data of visionary crops, herbs and fungi handed from one era to the subsequent, ever for the reason that Stone Age?There may be zero archaeological proof for the unique Eucharist – the sacred wine stated to ensure life after dying for individuals who drink the blood of Jesus. The Holy Grail and its miraculous contents have by no means been discovered. Within the absence of any laborious information, no matter occurred on the Final Supper stays an article of religion for right now’s 2.5 billion Christians. In an unprecedented seek for actual solutions, The Immortality Key examines the archaic roots of the ritual that’s carried out each Sunday for practically one third of the planet. Centuries within the making, faith and science converge to color a radical image of Christianity’s founding occasion. And to unravel historical past’s biggest puzzle as soon as and for all.Earlier than the rise of Christianity, the Historic Greeks discovered salvation in their very own sacraments. Sacred drinks had been routinely consumed as a part of the so-called Historic Mysteries – elaborate rites that led initiates to the brink of dying. Athens’ greatest and brightest flocked to the non secular capital of Eleusis, the place a holy beer unleashed heavenly visions for 2 thousand years.

In recent times, vindication for the disgraced concept has been quietly mounting within the laboratory. The continuously advancing fields of archaeobotany and archaeochemistry have steered the usage of psychedelic drinks in antiquity. And with a single dose of psilocybin, the psycho-pharmacologists at Johns Hopkins and NYU are actually turning self-proclaimed atheists into on the spot believers.If these sacraments survived for hundreds of years in our distant prehistory, from the Stone Age to the Historic Greeks, did in addition they survive into the age of Jesus? Was the unique Eucharist of Christianity, in reality, a psychedelic Eucharist? Is that this the actual secret behind the Holy Grail?With an unquenchable thirst for proof, Muraresku excursions the ruins of Greece with its authorities archaeologists. He positive aspects entry to the hidden collections of the Louvre Museum to indicate the continuity between pagan and Christian wine. He unravels the Historic Greek of the New Testomony with the world’s most controversial priest. He spelunks into the catacombs below the streets of Rome to decipher the misplaced symbols of Christianity’s oldest monuments. He breaches the key archives of the Vatican to unearth paperwork by no means earlier than translated into English. And with leads from the archaeological chemists on the Massachusetts Institute of Expertise and the College of Pennsylvania, he unveils the primary laborious information for the ritualistic use of psychedelic medicine in antiquity.The Immortality Key reconstructs a suppressed historical past of ladies consecrating the forbidden, drugged Eucharist that was later banned by the Church Fathers. Ladies who had been later focused as witches throughout the Inquisition, when Europe’s sacred pharmacology largely disappeared. If the scientists of right now have resurrected this know-how, then Christianity is lifeless. Except it returns to its roots. A Macmillan Audio manufacturing from St. Martin’s Press
