Amazing and TRUE! No more conspiracy theories.

The Templars are often shrouded in myths and legends. It is nice to get a factual and historical look at what the Templars really were.

Great survey!

Interesting as usual. This is a good follow up to topics mentioned in "Heaven or Heresy" and The New Concise History of the Crusades. And, I like the back ground info provided regarding recent overrated novels and movies tied to Templar History. I'm not surprised. Worth the listen.

Making the Crusades Understandable for The average person

He brought so much clarity on this topic. I’m especially happy that he brought up the modern lies, twists, and superstition. I read the chronicles of the Crusades from two eye witnesses, but this lecture filled in the gaps.

Eye opening

Very good information about a subject that has a lot of myth surrounding it. I enjoyed it.
