"A concise and easy-to-read survey of two richly symbolic and enduring aspects of the Middle Ages." --Renaissance Magazine (Fall 2003) "A practical history of the Templars...this book is a 'must' for those interested in the western mysteries." --Chev. Robert Brydon, Rosslyn Chapel Museum exhibition owner and Templar archivist, Edinburgh Why do the powerful medieval Knights Templar, the famed warriors of the Crusades, still intrigue many today? A secret society long shrouded in mystery, the Templars were believed to conduct mystical rituals, to guard the Holy Grail, and to possess the priceless treasures of the Temple of Jerusalem. Did they bring their treasure to North America, as some legends say? This definitive work about the Templars and their presumed hidden knowledge addresses many such fascinating questions, with rare photos from the Rosslyn Chapel Museum (Scotland) included. "A Templar tour-de-force...In this work Dr. Ralls has created an important bridge between these two extraordinary and long-lived themes." -- from the FORWARD, by John Matthews
