Knight Templar 1120-1312 by Helen Jane Nicholson

Book Description

The order of the Temple was a military-religious organisation that was set up to protect pilgrims and settlers in the Holy Land. The Templars believed they were God's warriors fighting on God's behalf and developed a fearsome reputation among the neighbouring Muslim rulers. This book examines the men who joined the order and why they joined it, focusing on those who fought in the Holy Land. Based on contemporary sources it provides an effective insight into the daily lives of the warriors, from their admission ceremony to their training, organisation in the field, and how they fought in battle.

Debate on the Trial of the Templars (1307-1314) by Helen Jane Nicholson Debate on the Trial of the Templars (1307-1314), Hardback (September 2010)

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)

Presenting a survey of the Christian crusades to the Holy Lands, this book offers an overview of the many contemporary campaigns against non-Christians throughout Europe and the Middle East.

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.
