Abstract:

In the year 1119, these noblemen found their calling as protectors of the faithful on a dangerous pilgrimage to newly conquered Jerusalem. Appearing as saviors on horseback, they spawned legends--but their arrogance, wealth, and secrecy made them targets of hatred and prejudice. Although history tells of only 200 years between their valiant rise and now, historian Newman elucidates the mysteries and misconceptions of the Templars, from their true first founding and role in the Crusades to more modern intrigues, including: Were they devout knights or secret heretics? Did they leave behind a fantastic treasure, hidden to this day? How did they come to be associated with the Holy Grail? Did they come to America before the time of Columbus? Does the order still exist?--From publisher description.
