More About This Title Los templarios


Drawing on the most recent scholarship, this account evaluates the legends and myths that have long surrounded the order of the Knights of the Templar. In 1099, the city of Jerusalem fell to an army of European knights intent on restoring the cross to the holy lands. From the ranks of these holy warriors emerged an order of monks trained in both scripture and the military arts—The Knights of the Temple of Solomon, called the Templars. In this engrossing and authoritative chronicle that spans three centuries, the Templars rise to political and financial power, experience a catastrophic fall, and leave behind a far-reaching legacy.
