THE TEMPLARS: The Rise and Spectacular Fall of God's Holy Warriors
In October of 1307, hundreds of brothers of the Knights Templar, organized in 1119 to protect Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land, were arrested, imprisoned, and tortured among lurid accusations of sexual misconduct and heresy. But were they heretics or victims of a ruthlessly repressive state? Jones examines the sources to answer this question. 16 pages of color illus.
