Did Christ really die on the cross? Or was he rescued by the man charged with his betrayal? And could it be that Christ was an ancestor of Mohammed? The Book of Judas is a historical epic screenplay set at the turn of the 12th century after the First Crusade, about a French crusading knight who discovers The Book of Judas in Jerusalem.
The Book is Judas’ version of events surrounding the crucifixion, and his alleged betrayal of Christ and his subsequent exile in Medina. Xavier de Crecie’s dilemma is whether The Book should be seen by the world’s nobility, thus throwing Christianity and Islam into question, or whether it should be suppressed for the good of both religions.
Few people know of The Book’s existence. The Catholic Church want to get their hands on The Book to suppress its contents. The Baron of Kent would also like to acquire it so he can use it as collateral against funding an army to depose the King of England. Whilst the Moorish Amir wants it back to protect Islam.
The antagonists will stop at nothing to wrestle The Book from Xavier’s grasp – including kidnapping his wife, the sublime and beautiful Duchess of Brittany – who is as much of an adversary as any knight, as the Duke of Kent and the King of England are about to find out.
