Description: During the Crusades, the Templars administered the most bitterly contested citadel in the monotheistic West, Jerusalem. Now, drawing on the most recent scholarship, and writing with rare a blend of authority and candor, Piers Paul Read chronicles the history of the blood-splattered monks who still infiltrate modernity in literature, as the inspiration for secret societies, and in the backyard fantasies of any child with access to a stick and a garbage can lid.

In 1307, the French king, Philip IV, expropriated Templar lands, unleashing a wave of repression that crested five years later. After Templar leaders broke down and confessed, under torture, to blasphemy, heresy, and sodomy, Pope Clement V suppressed the Order in 1312. Was it guilty as charged? And what relevance has the story to our own times? In this remarkable history, Piers Paul Read explores the Crusades and the individual biographies of the many colorful characters who fought them.
