I too like that period. There is a thread on the crusades here. I suggested a book there. Let me cut and paste my post:
The Templars: The Secret History Revealed by Barbara Frale
Description from Amazon.com:
"Templar historian Barbara Frale happened to be studying a document at the Vatican Secret Archives when she suddenly realized that it was none other than the long-lost transcript. It revealed that Pope Clement V had absolved the order of all charges of heresy."
She is a historian at the Vatican Secret Archives.
Ahhh, CF. , your right on target for me today. Once again thank you ! I always had a special interest in that period of history. Especially when it came to the crusades. Then I learned about the Knights Templar about four years ago and that intrigue was rekindled.
God bless you and I pray our blessed Mother Mary watch over you and all emergency personel. Thank you.....
I'm a little late getting this out, but I wanted to say, have a blessed Pentecost
The peace of God be with you, and may our Blessed Mother Mary Most Holy watch over you and your brothers and sisters in the fire department, or I should say: First Responders.
