The New Knighthood: A History of the Order of the Temple

by

The New Knighthood: A History of the Order of the Temple Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Order of the Temple, founded in 1119 to protect pilgrims around Jerusalem, developed into one of the most influential corporations in the medieval world. It has retained its hold on the modern imagination, thanks to the dramatic events of the Templars' trial and abolition two hundred years later, and has been invoked in historical mysteries from masonic conspiracy to the survival of the Turin shroud. Malcolm Barber's lucid narrative separates myth from history in this full and detailed account of the Order, from its origins, flourishing and suppression to the Templars' historical afterlife.

Synopsis:

Details the rise and fall of the medieval Order of the Temple, and its afterlife in myth and history.
