The Real History Behind the Templars by Sharan Newman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The story of the Order of the Knights Templars is the stuff of epic romance. In the year 1119, the Templars found their calling as protectors of the faithful on a dangerous pilgrimage to newly conquered Jerusalem. Appearing as saviours on horseback, these noblemen spawned stories that formed the basis of Arthurian legend. But their arrogance, wealth and secrecy made the Templars a target for hatred and violence. Today many myths surround this ancient order and it is portrayed as everything from a Masonic society to the keeper of the Holy Grail. But just who were the Templars? In The Real History Behind the Templars, historian Sharan Newman elucidates the mysteries and misconceptions surrounding the Templars, from their founding and the part they played in the Crusades, to more modern intrigues and their role in popular culture including The Da Vinci Code and the Indiana Jones films.
