On 18 March 1314, Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Templars, was burned at the stake. For almost two centuries, the knights of the Order of the Temple had flourished during the Crusades in Palestine and Syria, and in the West, notably in France. But in 1307, the Templars in France were arrested by King Philip IV's officials in the name of the Inquisition, their property seized and the men charged with serious heresies, including the denial of Christ, homosexuality and idol worship. Confessions, extracted under torture, were brought before royal and papal tribunals, but in 1310 a number of Templar brothers mounted a defence of their Order, refuelling the controversies which continued for a further four years before the final executions. Malcolm Barber's fascinating account, assessing the charges brought against the Order, once again puts the Templars on trial.

There are countless books written about the Knights Templar. Unfortunately most of them are thrown together and littered with nonsense. So it is very refreshing to read a book on this subject that is crafted by a true scholar and a historian of integrity and honor. I cannot praise this book enough. It has rightly become a classic and the definitive source on the subject matter covered. It is a flawless work of history. Never boring or dry. I give it ten stars.

The complete, as complete as it could be, story about the process against the templars. The best I have found so far.

This is not fiction, but it should have been.

Barber is the leading authority on the Templars. I loved this book and it answered many questions I had. I am hoping for a new edition from his earlier A NEW KNIGHTHOOD.

I am very interested in everything I can find to read about the Templars. They were a great warriors who were
in the end betrayed by their Church and the Countries who employed them. They had a masterful way of
expanding their lands and monies. Those in power destroyed to take it all from them. Mary

I bought this book as a present and it was about 13 dollars for a used copy but it could have easily passed as brand new. Came on time too!

I AM A KNIGHT TEMPLAR HERE IN MELBOURNE ,AUSTRALIA.I VISITED DURNSTEIN ,AND THE RUINED CASTLE ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNT OVERLOOKING THE TOWNSHIP ON THE RHINE WHERE EDWARD 1ST WAS IMPRISONED ON HIS RETURN FROM THE CRUSADE IN 1192
Very historical, but difficult to follow due to repeated events and the time period covered. It jumped time
periods and countries. The historical names of the people involved seemed factual, but their time in history
made their involvement difficult to follow.
