God's Warriors by Helen Jane Nicholson

Book Description

This book tells the story of the momentous campaign that led to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem in 1187, following the disastrous Crusader defeat at Hattin, where Saladin's troops destroyed the Christian army. These events resulted in the collapse of the kingdom of Jerusalem and sparked off the Third Crusade under Richard I. The authors take a close look at the two most intriguing warrior types involved in the conflict: the Knight Templar and the Saracen Faris. Their motivation, training and combat experiences are examined, as the authors explore what it was really like to fight in the Crusades.

Seven hundred years after the dissolution of the order, the trial of the Templars still arouses controversy and speculation. This book examines various aspects of the background to the trial, the financial, political and religious context of the trial in France, and the value of the Templars' testimonies.

Crusades by Helen Jane Nicholson Crusades, Paperback (September 2009)

Knights Templar on Trial by Helen Jane Nicholson Knights Templar on Trial, Hardback (May 2009)

Unlike the trial in France, where the Templars were tortured into confessing to unspeakable activities, in the British Isles there were no burnings and only three confessions after torture. Several Templars went missing, most of whom later reappeared. This book records their arrest, imprisonment and trial, and the surveys of their property.
