Why were the Knight's Templar forcibly disbanded? What happened to their legacy? Were the Templars wiped out or did they survive by starting new orders to preserve their secrets? How did a medieval Christian brotherhood, whose fanatical warriors were prepared to enthusiastically embrace a martyr's death on the battlefield, inspire the many conspiracy theories of noble, mystical warrior monks which pervade modern literature? How did a religious Order which was forcibly disbanded seven hundred years ago maintain such a grip on the modern Western imagination? Robert Lomas, best-selling author of Turning the Hiram Key, investigates the facts, challenges the conspiracy theorists and takes the reader on an inspiring and complex quest to uncover the truth and motives behind the enduring myth of the Templars.
