    1. Being on a history binge lately as I ve had trouble finding good fiction to read, I ve been reading up on some of my favorite topics from Discovery Channel and History Channel Documentaries The biggest draw for me is the Knights Templar The biggest drawback it s very hard to find good books on the Templars that don t devolve into rambling discourses on how Dan Brown was right about everything.And then I found this book by accident at my local library It s an English translation of a French text [...]

    2. Good succinct overview of the history of the Order of the Temple in a slightly dated style owing at least partly to being a translation from French Gives attention to the Templars origins, career in the Holy Land, logistics and bases of support in Europe, institutional finances and role in early banking, and, of course, their unjust destruction by Philip the Fair, an act of plunder which ultimately did him no good Pernoud also has some wonderfully trenchant remarks about the esoteric and mystica [...]

    3. I actually read the English version of the book, not the french, but since Facebook s visual bookshelf app is gay and didn t have it, i listed this one instead.The Templars are conspiracy theorists favorite whipping boys and that s not to say that all conspiracy theories are wrong many, in fact, are quite true Accordingly, good literature on the Templars is hard to find most being written by border line illiterates who know that a sensational story sells a lot of books Regine Pernoud, on the oth [...]

    4. I find there are some historical events that I hold a grudge over The fall of Constantinople, I ll probably never forgive the Turks for that though, for some weird reason, I don t have the same animosity towards Venice for the Fourth Crusade Or the expulsion of the Moors and Jews from Spain, though I m lenient there since Spain has invited Sephardi Jews to have Spanish citizenship or so says at least, so says Anyhow, the arrest of the Templars is one of those France, this is why I m suspicious [...]

    6. Yazar n anlat m tarz , ilk retim okul kitab ndan daha sevimsiz bir hale sokmu kitab B ylesine ilgi ekici bir konudan b yle tats z bir okuma deneyimi kmamal yd Yanl bak a s ndan bahsetmiyorum bile Ayr ca, ba tan sona bu bask y edit r n tekrar g zden ge irmesi gerekti ini d n yorum.

    7. Short history one of the most famous order of knights The inner rules, the history of Jerusalem battles and the sad story of unjust trial Definitely worth reading as long as you want to clarify the facts about Templars and ged rid of the legends.

    8. Read like a text book Being a Christian it was interesting to see the development of the Templars, but it was very hard to digest
