Publisher's Summary

Arguably one of the most provocative, puzzling, and misunderstood organizations of medieval times, the legendary Knights Templar have always been shrouded in a veil of mystery, while inspiring popular culture from Indiana Jones to Dan Brown. In The Templars, author Michael Haag offers a definitive history of these loyal Christian soldiers of the Crusades - sworn to defend the Holy Land and Jerusalem, but ultimately damned and destroyed by the Pope and his church.

A best seller in the United Kingdom - the first history of the enigmatic warriors to include findings from the Chinon Parchment, the long-lost Vatican document absolving the Knights of heresy - The Templars by Michael Haag is a fascinating, must-listen book.

Critic Reviews

"Haag sifts through the history and the legends to illuminate these mysterious Holy Warriors.... [Fans] of The Da Vinci Code and other fictions relating to the Templars will enjoy this well-written […] and solidly researched book. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

Narrator ruined it

After a few hours, I had to stop listening because the narrator is terrible. I listen in my car making the audio quality key. He buries the end of his words which makes names incomprehensible. Very disappointed.
