Much has been written in recent years concerning the rise and fall of the noble order of knighthood know to history as The Knights Templar. Many of the modern works have been of a speculative nature... More > and occasionally so close to works of fiction as to blur the borders. What is needed and often requested by modern day adherents of Templarism is a book that will provide a brief overview of historical fact devoid of the many theories and suppositions that seem to be the providence of these more recent works.
"The Knights Templar: A Factual History" is such a book. Relying on the works of actual Templar Historians of the past and present, this book is a collection of short essays by Charles G. Addison, Henry D. Funk, Henry Hart Milman and F. C. Woodhouse, who offer their accounts of the formation, suppression and trials of the order, which began in Palestine in 1118 and was suppressed in 1307.< Less
