Description With a Foreword by bestselling author Umberto Eco, The Templars chronicles the rise and fall of the organization against a sweeping backdrop of war, religious fervor, and the struggle for dominance, Barbara Frale gives us an explosive, exhaustively researched history of the medieval world's most powerful military order, the Templars.
At its height, the Order of the Knights Templar rivaled the kingdoms of Europe in military might, economic power, and political influence. For years, the tragic demise of this society of warrior-monks amid accusations of heresy has been plagued by controversy, in part because the transcript of their trial by the Inquisition--which held the key to the truth--had vanished. It revealed that Pope Clement V had absolved the order of all charges of heresy. Let her finally lift the centuries-old cloak of mystery surrounding the world's most intriguing secret society.
