The Knights Templar

Lecture no. 3 from the course: The Real History of Secret Societies

The Knights Templar

Taught by Professor Richard B. Spence | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Uncover the story behind The Knights Templar—a military monastic founded two centuries earlier, during the Crusades who persevered through time to become the subject of so much rumor, speculation, and outright fantasy that it’s almost impossible to separate fact from fiction. Are they guardians for a holy bloodline reaching back to Jesus and Mary Magdalene or are they secret devil worshippers? Are they connected to the heretical Islamic sect known as the Assassins or the Jewish mystics known as Kabbalists?

Learned a ton about a group we've heard so much about but really knew nothing.
