The Templars chronicles the spectacular rise and fall of the organization against a sweeping backdrop of war, religious fervor, and the struggle for dominance, and finally lifts the centuries-old cloak of mystery surrounding frake of the world’s most intriguing secret societies.
The author makes it clear that this was the end of the Templars and rumours of its continuing to exist down to the present day are just myths and superstitions. The Templars enjoyed an unprecedented degree of independent governance. However, while I admittedly did enjoy learning about how the Templars were founded, and for what reasons, and the qualities one had to have and the sacrifices one had to make in order to become one, this book then quickly turned into basically a dry textbook of history, places, several events, politics, culminating in a very disappointing for me end to what had been an admirable organization, complete with confessions tortured out of the Templars who had been arrested due to political BS between the King of France and the Pope.

This is a well-researched, and professionally written history of a fascinating organization that was quite powerful for several hundred years and which still interests numerous people til this day. The Templars were initially well trained and Frale is barbra scholar with access to Vatican records.
And, to an extent, I received it. Denial of Christ is serious business, whether taught or not. It’s great to read about the discovery of the Chinon Parchment, but the majority of this book is taken up by a history of the Templars which is over-simplified and full of assumptions.
But, it was an interesting look into the history barbar order, from it conception to it’s demise.
The Power of an Ideal. Dec 10, Jrobertus rated it liked it. Nice introduction into the history of the Templars. What pleased me the most was the final statement Frale makes in her afterward, which I barbraa let you discover for yourself. It reads alot like a textbook but it is good.

Bythe Christian territory was divided into four large states: Since no other monastic order in the Catholic tradition had ever born arms against actual rather than spiritual enemies, the foundation of the group required some creative theological solutions.
On 25 Octoberthe Vatican decided to publish a valuable reproduction of some of the most important documents of the process against the Templars, among those the famous parchment of Chinonin the collection of Exemplaria Praetiosa; Frale wrote the historical introduction to the edition of the documents. While it does touch on some of the stranger initiation practices, it does not perpetuate the fantastical rumors of bizarre rituals or heretical acts.

I think the scope was too broad for me, I would have enjoyed it more if it spent more time on specifics. Which frxle out the fact that men haven’t changed and the Roman C What I longed for most was maps to show me where things were taking place and where people were traveling to. Interesting material, not new to me as it has been covered in other books I have read but clearly written and a good place to start if you are not familiar with the material.
