The Sign and the Seal: The Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant is a book by British pseudoscience author Graham Hancock , in which the author describes his search for the Ark of the Covenant and proposes a theory of the ark's historical movements and current whereabouts. The book sold well but received negative reviews. Hancock proposes that the ark was removed from Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem by temple priests during the reign of the evil King Manasseh of Judah around BC, and then it spent about years in a purpose-built temple in Elephantine , Egypt before it was removed around BC to Ethiopia via tributaries to the Nile River , where it was kept on the Jewish island of Tana Qirqos for about eight hundred more years as the centre of a strong Jewish community there, before it finally came into the hands of the young Ethiopian Orthodox Church in the 5th century, who took it to their capital of Axum , and it supposedly remains there until today in the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion. The Ethiopian Church believes that the Ark is indeed held today in the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion , but as opposed to the book, they believe that it was brought to Ethiopia by Menelik I , stolen from Solomon's Temple during the reign of King Solomon himself, some years earlier than the events proposed by the book. Hancock also claims that the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant may possibly be one and the same relic as a result of a comparative study of the great German epic Wolfram von Eschenbach 's Parzival , the Ethiopian national epic Kebra Nagast , and the iconography of Chartres Cathedral. Hancock also claims that the Knights Templar searched for the lost Ark of the Covenant, among other relics, at the site of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in the 12th century. It is likely that an Ethiopian king in exile Lalibela in Jerusalem in the 12th century made contact with the Knights Templar.
