    Great History of the Knights Templars

    The detail is minute. I have read several short accounts of the group, but nothing as close to "first hand" as this. The work gives a multitude of references to support the author's deductions about the Knights. He pretty much substantiates the Knights got screwed by the later Pope and the Kings in order to get their money and possessions that were given to them by the Popes and the Kings that previously supported them.

    Text Book

    This was dry reading. It reads like a text book. With that said I enjoyed the readind and recommend it as formal and enlightning. I believe that the writter would have been better to give input as to the battles that took place. The author had mind made up that the templers were bad to begin with, and by discribing the lossing battles and in most cases left out the winning battles. You must approach the book as politically correct, but not wholly accurate.

    Not high on my reading list

    This may be a historically accurate account of the Knights Templar (I have no way of knowing), but it reads like a text book on quantum physics. But then, I've never read a text book on that subject.

    The Knights Templars started out as holy men loyal to Rome, but

    The Knights Templars started out as holy men loyal to Rome, but as often happens, they grew greedy and corrupt in Palestine.
    The Templars amassed great wealth through one of the first systems of profit banking, though usury was and is forbidden by the
    Catholic Church. Finally, after being infiltrated by other profiteers in the Holy Land, they presumed to use their wealth to command
    the Pope himself, and extort kings and queens in other lands. So they were disbanded and excommunicated, after which they fled and
    because they had such skills building castles and banking houses, joined the masons guilds. They quickly influenced the guilds and soon became a secret society dedicated to the overthrow of Catholicism in revenge for their excommunication. They became known as Freemasons. They continued their banking and used their wealth to buy kings and queens to do their bidding, and evil men to infiltrate the Church posing as priests, to try to destroy her from within. They use these tactics to this very day. The reader is wise to recognize these things.

    What is known already

    This is certainly not the most complete research about the subject but since everybody wants to make a book we are not finding anymore the unique book.
