... implebit ruinas: conquassabit capita in terra multorum. When General Georgi Zhukov enters the ruined Reichs Chancellery in Berlin and discovers a curious lance in a felt-lined box, he realizes he's unearthed a symbol, an instrument of incredible power, a totem of total domination... Tracing the Lance of Phineas from the dawn of history, through Tiberius Caesar and Cheruski warriors to a Syrian soldier called Gaius Longinus, and then to a scene of world-shattering import on Golgotha, the author blends mysticism with historical fact to keep the past vividly alive. Charlemagne, Parsifal, Napoleon, Emperor Franz Josef of Austria... and a young watercolor artist from Linz - all are fascinated by the sacred lance and the prospect of world domination that it brings. But it also carries the seeds of its owner's destruction, and none knows this better than the doomed Reichs Chancellor, Adolf Hitler...
