The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

The Templars - The Rise and Spectacular Fall of God's Holy Warriors - Dan Jones

 


A short summary of The Templars:

Everything you have ever wanted to know about the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and the Temple of Solomon but didn't learn from Indiana Jones.

My favorite Dan Jones quote from the book:

"Their mission was lofty, but the world in which they operated was messy."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Did you realize that there were pilgrimages to holy sites from the beginning of Christianity itself?

Should there ever be a fighting order?

My review of The Templars:

Thoroughly researched and with detailed information.

Clarifies many of the Knights Templar legends.

Debunks many of the Knights Templar conspiracy theories.
