The history of the Knights Templar has frequently been hidden behind the veil of their myth, which associates the order with the arcane and the occult. This course will study their rapid rise from a modest beginning to a position of power and wealth; their ability as warriors and castle builders; and the causes for their suppression. It will also examine the myths surrounding the order, from the moment of its suppression to the present day, and its connection with Freemasonry.
