The First Crusade - Knights Templar


Does anyone have any information, or could tell me what the Knights Templar were? I’ve read things online from places like Wikipedia, but I’m not sure if those are trustworthy as they’re from secular resources.

Any help would be great! :slight_smile:


From New Advent…


I recommend the following two Crusade historians’ works:

Thomas Madden
Jonathan Riley-Smith

Have fun in your research!


Too many myths thrown in with truth…
Hard to see where to divide both…LOL
