Nazareth Quest by Bernard Mulholland


Book review of Nazareth Quest in Mensa Magazine:

‘Irish Mensan Bernard Mulholland is well known for his academic publications. An archaeologist and historian with a PhD from Queen’s University in Belfast, his thesis was published as The Early Byzantine Christian Church – and his other works include The Man from Mensa, a look at Mensa’s history and research projects.

Now, in a complete change of direction, Bernard has published his first novel. Nazareth Quest is a dramatic thriller set in the historic lands of Israel.

Invited to join a team of archaeologists in Nazareth, to survey the archaeology beneath the Sisters of Nazareth Convent, Brendan Mallon leaps at the opportunity.

Crusaders, both Templars and Hospitallers, have been intimately associated with the history of Christian churches in Nazareth for more than a millennia, and now these archaeologists find themselves tasked with uncovering secrets of these ancient orders. What first drew these Crusaders to Nazareth, and could the archaeologists reveal the hidden truth behind many of the mysteries that have transcended time?

Forced to battle, first with soldiers of Christ and then for their very existence against a demon overlord with ties to the British monarchy, the archaeologists each have to dig deep to discover the route to their own salvation.

And, more than that, to then decide whether to join a quest to recover holy relics associated with the Last Supper‘.

Hi. My name is Bernard. My landlord plans to evict me in the run-up to Christmas at noon on Friday, November 25, 2022, and I need to raise funds to pay for accommodation.
I am an independent researcher, and, if there are surplus funds, then these will go towards funding my research. I am an archaeologist, historian and Byzantinist and I have published several books on these topics, and you can read more on my Academia profile: My area of expertise is the archaeology of the Early Byzantine Christian Church.
I wanted to take my research to a new audience, and so I have also recently published a novel with that goal in mind. As an independent researcher, sales from these books also goes towards funding my research, and I would appreciate it if you could share these titles on social media to help promote sales.
