A fundamental essay that gives a brief idea of the birth, growth and activities of the Order of the Knights of the Temple of Jerusalem, whom acted as advocates and guardians of the holy places and of the pilgrims who visited them.
While using an informal and simple language, and in a very concise manner, this essay reviews the most important occurrences in the life of this Order, which had imposed itself as one of the most powerful organizations of the Middle Ages and who became the economic benefactors of kings and popes. This is also the reason why they were eliminated.
It is interesting to observe the detail in which this essay briefly mentions the circumstances that followed the demise of the Order of the Temple, the enigmatic fate of the Templar fleet, its possible arrival to America, as well as the mention of modern organizations under the name of the Order of the Temple that are said to have inherited that glory.
A necessary work that introduces one to a basic knowledge of this secretive organization and that remains shrouded in mystery even after more than a thousand years since its creation.
