Templars and the Ark of the Covenant

Templars and the Ark of the Covenant: The Discovery of the Treasure of Solomon by Graham Phillips, from Bear & Co., ISBN 1591430399. According to legend, the Ark of the Covenant could be used to communicate with God or as a terrible weapon. For the latter purpose, the high priest wore a breastplate containing 12 sacred gemstones called the Stones of Fire. In southern Jordan, Graham Phillips uncovered evidence that medieval Knights Templar found the Ark and the Stones of Fire centuries after their disappearance - evidence that led to the recovery of three stones with highly unusual properties.
