Synopsis

Arguably one of the most provocative, puzzling, and misunderstood organizations of medieval times, the legendary Knights Templar have always been shrouded in a veil of mystery, while inspiring popular culture from Indiana Jones to Dan Brown. In The Templars, author Michael Haag offers a definitive history of these loyal Christian soldiers of the Crusades—sworn to defend the Holy Land and Jerusalem, but ultimately damned and destroyed by the Pope and his church. A bestseller in the United Kingdom—the first history of the enigmatic warriors to include findings from the Chinon Parchment, the long-lost Vatican document absolving the Knights of heresy—The Templars by Michael Haag is fascinating reading.

The Templars
April 9th, 2014
Interesting but at times becomes too detailed and hard to follow some of the characters. At times seemed more of a book for a history class. The statement that Dan Brown "claimed" was used several times. Brown's books were novels not historical and far as I could see never claimed to be anything else. These statements, made by the author, deflated my overall enjoyment of the book.
