Who were the mysterious mediëval Knights Templar, and how can we separate fact from fiction? How does their mythos and its meaning live on today?

The powerful Knights Templar, famed monastic warriors of the Crusades, have long been shrouded in mystery. They were believed to conduct mystical rites, guard the Holy Grail, and possess the lost treasures of Jerusalem. They were also bankers to kings, trusted diplomats, farmers, business scions, and navigators. From Wolfram von Eschenbach's Parzival to Hollywood films like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the Templars continue to fascinate many today.

Dr. Karen Ralls presents the unfolding drama of the Knights Templar through time, examining the many beliefs and theories about their presumed powers and knowledge. Drawing on both academic and popular sources, she provides a solidly researched, up-to-date perspective and includes exclusive photos from Rosslyn Chapel and its museum exhibition. The result is a riveting read and a vital contribution to Templar history and their enduring spiritual legacy.

From Chapter 3 - 'Organization and Beliefs':

The Importance of Our Lady 

" The Templars showed a great reverence for Mary. Rule 306 states that 'the hours of Our Lady should always be said first in this house . . .  because Our Lady was the beginning of our Order, and in her and in her honour, if it please God, will be the end of our lives and the end of our Order, whenever God wishes it to be. ' "
