Pressestimmen

"Highly readable" (Times)

"Hancock's book will probably be as popular as the Raider's film. Added to the Holy Grail excitement of his quest, he has invented a new genre: an intellectual whodunnit by a do-it-yourself sleuth" (Guardian)

"It should cause widespread discussion and it deserves to" (Daily Telegraph)

Werbetext

A gripping religious historical conspiracy thriller from the bestselling author of investigative history book Fingerprints of the Gods. This controversial book establishes Hancock as a leading voice in the popular genre of religious theory. Perfect for fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Format: Taschenbuch
Hancock's book is an entertaining account of an enthusiast who, from his own admission, was largely ignorant of his subject when he set out to discover the truth about it. The book has three main flaws. Whether by design or cultural self-centeredness, Hancock is too interested in searching for Knights Templar involvement, although the so-called Templar crosses in Ethiopia/Eritrea date from the 5th century AD. Linking the Ark to medieval Europeans sells books [Munro-Hay's Aksum (1991) and The Ark of the Covenant (1999) are far more informative but don't sell outside academia because European historical romanticism is absent in his works]. Secondly, Hancock had little understanding of the Kebra Nagast, which is a combination of two separate works, the Sheba-Menelik Cycle dating from oral (10th century BC) and written (pre-400BC) Semitic sources (Josephus summarises it (ca.90AD); and the Caleb Cycle (ca 518 AD). When Isaac's team compiled the Kebra Nagast around 1314 AD they used an Arabic Sheba-Menelik Cycle and a Ge'ez Caleb Cycle and then put in their own comments to try and make sense of the bizarre geography of the Sheba-Menelik Cycle. This included references to Cairo and Alexandria, which didn't exist in Solomon's day, something Hancock overlooked. Hancock is hardly alone in his third and major miscalculation. It is now generally accepted in mainstream archaeology that no evidence exists in Israel/Palestine of the events and places described in the Old Testament up until the Babylonian captivity. The site of modern day Jerusalem in Solomon's day was covered by a few small villages. There was no great city and nothing has been found of Omri's even more magnificent capital in Samaria.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

"The Sign and the Seal" is a book you will not put down once you picked it up. As far as it's entertainment value is concerned, it is really a great "adventure story". However, when it comes to the informations contained in this book, I cannot believe everything that Hancock wrote. The "Ark in Ethiopia"-Theory as presented by him sounds very credible, especially when you consider the central role that the ark plays in the rites and believes of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. It would be hard to explain how it could get this role unless you assume that the Ethiopians did have some contact with the "real thing". However, Hancock's theory about the ark as being a "technical device" build by using knowledge from Atlantis is, in my eyes, not only speculation but speculation that lacks credibility. His theory that the Holy Ark was not something spiritual, but rather a "monstrous machine" used by Moses to keep the Israelites under his control implies that Moses was a manipulative person interested in power over others. Without this assumption, there would be no reason why he should have used his superior technological knowledge (if he had any)to control and manipulate the Israelites. But this very assumption is a complete contradiction to the description of Moses' character as it is given in the Torah and other traditional writings! Did Hancock overlook that Moses is called "the most humble person on earth" in the Book of Numeri, a person who asked the Holy One: "Who am I, that I should go to pharaoh?" (cf. Exodus ch. 3)? Does this sound like one who wants to lead others? As you can expect, the speculations that Hancock comes forth with to prove his theory can be taken apart very easily.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Simon Kinahan (simonk@cadence.com) am 8. Oktober 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book and exciting and stimulating read, and Hancock does his research well, as best I can tell. He leaves the reader with a great deal to think about, both in the biblical context of discovering what happened to the Ark, and in the Ethiopian context of the unusual reverence the Ethiopian Orthodox Church has for the Ark, and their claim to possess the original artifact.
However readers should be forwarned that, as in all his other work I have read, Graham Hancock is willing to draw the most sensational conclusions from what appears to be very scanty evidence. He links his ideas together very poorly and often reasons from ealier conclusions that, while they seem reasonable, are never backed up fully. He has no single compelling piece of evidence, just a lot of suggestive ideas.
Nontheless, it is an excellent read, and I highly recommend it. I just want to warn those who read it and feel 'all them historians and egyptologists is wrong, Graham Hancock knows the TRUTH' that he never proves any of his theories, and therefore as well as not being easy to dismiss, his ideas should not be too easily accepted.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Don Libes am 12. Mai 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
The book was way too long - the author unnecessarily repeated certain ideas over and over again. [Proof by repetition!]
At the same time, the author skipped around other issues entirely. For example, what was the ark? The author provided almost no speculation from a scientific point of view. I was quite disappointed by "it's a gift from god and cannot be explained". The author is great at speculating and drawing conclusions from very little, so it's hard to understand why he didn't do a little more work on this. It makes me wonder what he had in mind in the event that he actually found the ark. Would he have stopped at a physical description of it? Surely he had a long list of questions that could be answered. But he never talked about it, so it's as if he knew there was no point in preparing such a list. (I could've imagined a whole chapter on this subject alone.)
Same observation about Axum. Why did he not have a long list of questions (and ideas) for what was going to happen when he finally talked to the keeper of the ark. I'm astounded that he just asked some weak questions and gave up. There are all sorts of ways he could've gotten more information. I can't help wondering if he did indeed find out that the Ark wasn't there and so he came up with this lame ending so the whole thesis of the book wasn't a total waste.
The book could've used a lot more pictures. He wasted pages and pages on text as he tried to describe symbols and their arrangements. A few good pictures would've been much simpler. (When a lawyer does this in court, it's because a picture would disprove the point he's trying to make.)
Sorry to be so negative - I am giving this four stars because I did enjoy reading the book and have recommended it to friends. It's just that it had some gaping holes.
