This article is going to give a quick explanation on mythical creatures and how they fit in with Ring Lords. The other articles I'm to write about will all refer back to this article since this is where I got the information from. It comes from the works of Laurence Gardner - Realm of the Ring Lords. The work he's done in this book I have found nothing to compare with. He does not say anything about theories, rather, he states his case matter-of-factly as though there's no argument on it. It's really interesting reading.
Anyway, let's get to the point! In Realm of the Ring Lords, he clears up the origins of quite a few mythical creatures. He is a genealogist and historical lecturer with a huge list of titles, including Knight Templar of St. Anthony. His answers to the mythical creature origins naturally lie in ancient history. This is where the Realm of the Ring Lords come into place. He deals with civilizations of old and how the Catholic Church suppressed knowledge of them by transforming these people into mythical creatures of horror and magic - thereby scaring people into their churches for safety.
The ancient people in question, for the most part, have to do with the Sangreal - the bloodline of Jesus. The Catholic Church suppressed the truth. As for the part about the Ring Lords, Gardner tells of how the some of the truth has been known all along and that you can see hidden meanings in such works as the operas of Robert Wagner and J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.
I'm not going to elaborate more on this. It's just to give you an idea of where the information on the mythical creatures comes from, rather than state it in each individual article. I believe this kind of thing obviously falls into the Templars Mysteries section but the mythical creatures will go into their separate section. I could be like the rest and further stimulate the minds of those not in the know by talking about rich little green men and flying naked magical women the size of my thumb, but I like stating things honestly and clearing up the truth behind them. For that reason, the mythical creatures section is going to be down to earth.
Anyway, what am I doing writing about mythical creatures in a Templars section? Oh well, if you want to know more, just take a look over there. For more info, pick up Realm of the Ring Lords by Laurence Gardner.
