The Knights Templar was a military and religious order that dominated medieval Europe for nearly two hundred years until it was suppressed in the early 1300s. The warrior monks disappeared from history into myth, their true nature forgotten and woven into fantasy. But the traces they left behind on the land can still be seen. With a combination of stunning photography, historical imagery and detailed descriptions, this book provides not only a history of the Templars but also the first comprehensive survey of all the Templar sites in Britain.

 

  • Lots of good Templar detailes

  • Easy to locate specific information. Easy to read, broke down into sections, descriptive images included.

  • If you bought this book looking for an exhaustive history of the Knights Templar, I feel you will be disappointed. It's a good tour guide to Templar sites in Great Britain but does not even scratch the surface of their history or the roots of the current controversy. The History Channel's DVD is far better as a starting point. Jim, Virginia Beach

  • Not meant to be exhaustive or particularly academic, this book is a nice intro to the Templars in Britain. It emphasizes the physical sites but sprinkles good historical information throughout the write-ups. The book is clearly a labor of love and that kind of enthusiasm is contagious. There is a bit of mumbo jumbo mysticism mentioned, but mostly just to give context (the middle ages were very much about mysticism) rather than to play too much to Da Vinci Code type of interest. There are a lot of good photos. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by how good this book is.
