The Grail Code 

About the Authors

Mike Aquilina is author or editor of more than a dozen books on Catholic history, doctrine, and devotion. He is vice president of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology based in Steubenville, Ohio.

Mike is co-host, with Scott Hahn, of “The Lamb’s Supper” (2001), “Hail, Holy Queen” (2002), “First Comes Love” (2003), “Lord, Have Mercy” (2004), and “Swear to God” (2005) — all airing on EWTN. He also appears regularly as a panelist on “The Weekly Roman Observer,” broadcast by Catholic Family Network.

Mike’s career in publishing spans two decades, and hundreds of his articles have appeared in many periodicals and journals in the United States and abroad.

Christopher Bailey has worked as a writer, editor, translator, and researcher for more than 15 years.

After spending his childhood and youth within the Washington, D.C., Beltway, he made a brief stop in Florida before settling in to Pittsburgh — considered by many to be the Camelot of North America, because of its beauty and the virtue of its citizens.

Mr. Bailey labored for years in the fields of high technology before setting up his own virtual stand in the publishing marketplace. He now works from the attic floor of his home, a restored city parsonage built in 1909, atop a high hill in Pittsburgh, Pa.

His articles have appeared in Touchstone, Columbia, New Covenant, The New Catholic Encyclopedia (second edition), and elsewhere. Till the publication of The Grail Code, he was best known as a satirist, having published parodies of literature as varied as the ancient Gnostic text Pistis Sophia, the modern Gnostic Da Vinci Code, and the preface to your favorite study Bible.

Schooled in the great-books tradition, Mr. Bailey has spent many years in close study and translation of the Arthurian texts. He translated many of the texts that appear in The Grail Code.

His wife Teresa is a birth doula (with advanced degrees in law and library science), currently at work on a book about childbirth. His preschool-age son, Simon, is conducting intensive research in the areas of trains and streetcars.
