The trial of the Templars by Malcolm Barber( Book )

97 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 1,802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the trial (which lasted until 1314), and covers the initial confessions of the brothers under torture, their subsequent attempts to defend themselves, and the final repression. Its argument extends beyond the Templars themselves, and examines the significance of the affair in relations between the French monarchy and the papacy. [Back cover]

A HISTORY OF WESTERN CHRISTENDOM IN THE HIGH MIDDLE AGES
The crusader states by Malcolm Barber( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the armies of the First Crusade wrested Jerusalem from control of the Fatimids of Egypt in 1099, they believed their victory was an evident sign of God's favor. It was, therefore, incumbent upon them to fulfill what they understood to be God's plan: to reestablish Christian control of Syria and Palestine. This book is devoted to the resulting settlements, the crusader states, that developed around the eastern shores of the Mediterranean and survived until Richard the Lionheart's departure in 1192. Focusing on Jerusalem, Antioch, Tripoli, and Edessa, Malcolm Barber vividly reconstructs the crusaders' arduous process of establishing and protecting their settlements, and the simultaneous struggle of vanquished inhabitants to adapt to life alongside their conquerors. Rich with colorful accounts of major military campaigns, the book goes much deeper, exploring in detail the culture of the crusader states--the complex indigenous inheritance; the architecture; the political, legal, and economic institutions; the ecclesiastical framework through which the crusaders perceived the world; the origins of the Knights Templar and the Hospitallers; and more. With the zest of a scholar pursuing a lifelong interest, Barber presents a complete narrative and cultural history of the crusader states while setting a new standard for the term "total history."
The new knighthood : a history of the Order of the Temple by Malcolm Barber( Book )

50 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Order of the Temple was founded in 1119 with the limited aim of protecting pilgrims around Jerusalem. It developed into one of the most powerful corporations in the medieval world which lasted for nearly two centuries until its suppression in 1312. Despite the loss of its central archive in the sixteenth century, the Order left many records of its existence as the spearhead of crusading activity in Palestine and Syria, as the administrator of a great network of preceptories and lands in the Latin west, and as a banker and ship-owner. Because of the dramatic nature of its abolition, it has retained its grip on the imagination and consequently there has developed an entirely fictional 'after-history' in which its secret presence has been evoked to explain mysteries which range from masonic conspiracy to the survival of the Turin Shroud. This book offers a concise and up-to-date introduction to the reality and the myth of this extraordinary institution

The Cathars by Malcolm Barber( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book traces the origins and spread of dualist ideas, assesses their attraction for contemporaries, and describes the reaction of the ecclesiastical and lay authorities in the form of preaching campaigns, intellectual refutation, crusade, and inquisitorial investigations. An account of the development of radical religious belief and the means used to suppress it, this book raises many important issues which transcend the specifics of time and place, including the nature of evil, the ethics of warfare, and the use made of history by later generations." "Richly illustrated, this book will have a wide appeal for all those interested in medieval perceptions of the world, the Crusades and the Inquisition."--Jacket

Knighthoods of Christ : essays on the history of the Crusades and the Knights Templar, presented to Malcolm Barber by Norman Housley( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contains 42 papers delivered at the International Conference on Military Orders held at Clerkenwell, London, in September, 1992. There are five sections covering the Hospitallers, the Templars, the Teutonic Knights, the Spanish Orders, and the perceptions and role of the orders.The impact of the military orders on European History has been profound, both in what they achieved and in the way interpretations of these achievements have since shaped European perceptions. Their influence can be found in places as far apart as Lithuania and Andalusia, Scotland and Palestine, and their chronological range extends from their origins in the 12th century down to the present day.This importance is fully reflected in this book, where the latest research is brought together through the contributions of scholars from 13 countries."--Provided by publisher

The military orders( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Military Orders first became central to European life in the 1130s and, despite the suppression of the Templars in 1312, remained so until Napoleon seized Malta from the Hospitallers in 1798. Even then, the spirit had not died, for hospitaller organisations based upon the original foundations were revived in the nineteenth century and many continue to perform important social functions today. The attraction of this subject was reflected in the conference on military orders held at St John's, Clerkenwell, in September 1992, which drew scholars from twenty countries; a large selection of their papers is published here. Themes as diverse as the administration of the Hospitaller estates in Essex; the Templar castles on the pilgrimage route to the Jordan; the treatment of prisoners of war by the Teutonic Order; and the perception of the military orders in Victorian England, are among the wide variety of studies contained in the forty-one papers in this volume. Yet, at the same time, the subject has an underlying unity, making it a field for fruitful co-operation between historians, archaeologists and art historians, the full potential of which is just beginning to be explored."--BOOK JACKET
