Secret societies from the Freemasons to the Ordo Templi Orientis claim descent from this religious order of warrior monks. A private army of the pope, the Templars were established to protect Christian pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land but grew to become the most powerful organization in the Middle Ages. James Wasserman provides a riveting history of the Order and the many mysteries that surround it through a lavish assemblage of 170 illustrations: manuscripts from the Crusades, romantic paintings and contemporary photographs.
Oversized softcover, profusely illustrated in color, indexed, 192 pages
