Overview

Arguably one of the most provocative, puzzling, and misunderstood organizations of medieval times, the legendary Knights Templar have always been shrouded in a veil of mystery, while inspiring popular culture from Indiana Jones to Dan Brown. In The Templars, author Michael Haag offers a definitive history of these loyal Christian soldiers of the Crusades—sworn to defend the Holy Land and Jerusalem, but ultimately damned and destroyed by the Pope and his church. A bestseller in the United Kingdom—the first history of the enigmatic warriors to include findings from the Chinon Parchment, the long-lost Vatican document absolving the Knights of heresy—The Templars by Michael Haag is fascinating reading.

This sorry excuse for a book spends far too long retelling Bible stories. If you want to learn about the Templars, find something else.

Such an interesting topic...written to the beat of a funeral dirge. After four attempts I could not finish the book.

The history of the Templars given in this book is especially enlightening to those members of the VFW; since the VFW uses the same cross as its emblem. An excellant read.

Fact filled and easy to read. Increased my knowledge and understanding of the knights Templar. And how they became a force in the Christian and Palestinian world of their age.
