Overview


In The Warriors and the Bankers, the research and writing team of Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe bring their combined experiences to bear on the question asked for hundreds of years, What became of the Knights Templar? Arrested in 1307, dissolved in 1312 and executed by 1314, the Templars have been the subject of many theories concerning their possible survival. This book examines these theories against new evidence and information. Additionally the authors put forth, for the first time, a completely NEW theory that has caught the ears, eyes and attention of many readers. The ultimate conclusion is that the Templars did survive virtually intact and that, in a very direct sense, they may still be one of the most potent forces at work in the world at the start of the new Millennium.

Meet the Author


Stephen Dafoe was born in Belleville, Ontario Canada in 1962 and now resides in Hinton, Alberta. Dafoe was initiated into the Masonic Fraternity in 1992, at the age of thirty - and from that day forward began to research the Craft, its history and its many inherent mysteries. This research naturally led to a study of the history and legend of the Knights Templar - a medieval order of crusaders who were exterminated by the king of France and the Pope, in 1312 - or were they? Since then he has become one of the world best known authorities on The Knights Templar. Alan Butler is a prolific writer who is just as happy writing a comedy play for BBC national and world radio as he is in working on an Elizabethan novel. However, his greatest love is and always has been history. As a child he would read book after book on archaeology, folklore, mythology, astronomy and history from around the world. Over the years he has developed a suspicion of the 'event-based' method of history teaching and a desire to investigate the 'historical undertones' that are the real motivating factors.
