    A sort of primer on Templar history good for somebody like me who is a novice in the field I think it may leave serious historians dissatisfied.I seemed to detect a subdued pro Christian bias throughout the narrative, but maybe that s just my perception The book does a good job of presenting the history of the Templars without any frills, and debunking conspiracy theories and far fetched ideas However, being a fan of mythology, it is the legends linking the Templars to the Holy Grail that A sort of primer on Templar history good for somebody like me who is a novice in the field I think it may leave serious historians dissatisfied.I seemed to detect a subdued pro Christian bias throughout the narrative, but maybe that s just my perception The...

    Every once in a while, you get an enthusiastic amateur who writes a delightful history for the rest of us amateurs This book is neither delightful nor reliable as a history.

    I found the history of the templars really interesting, having read a lot of the conspiracy theory stuff first The likely truth about the odd stories of the initiation rituals and the way it was twisted by Phillip is muchconvincing than the conspriracy stuff Having said that, knowing that the documentation is pretty scarce, I would have likedon which details were coming from where there was some, but not enough in my opinion and alsoabout interactions between Outremer, th I fou...

    I am probably underrating this book, but I couldn t get to the last page, which is unusual for me The first third of the book is hard core fact It s a little pendantic There are so many names, places, and dates that it is hard to keep track It is interesting, just a little less textbook would have made it easier to read The second section is takes on Templar myth, ...

    I am sad I had to stop reading this book I m very interested in the Templars, but this book is so anti Islamic, It gets in the way of taking anything else seriously And I m a Christian.

    A great study Haag covers the history of the order in ample depth whilst also addressing some of the frequent misperceptions around the Templars Haag is at times a little too assertive in his denotion of certain ideas as conspiratorial and comes across as dismissive of feasible links as a result.

    An excellent introduction for the laymanLong shrouded in myth, the spell the Templars weave upon the popular imagination has long been an enduring feature of Western culture, and of numerous conspiracy theories.With wit, wisdom, and an erudite piece of work, Michael Haag consigns these theories to the bonfire, as well as setting the historical record straight Whilst not an in depth look at every nut and bolt of Templar history, Haag presents enough of the early days of the founding of the order An excellent introduction for the laymanLong shrouded in myth, the spell the Templars weave upon the popular imagination has long been an enduring feature of Western culture, and of numerous conspiracy theories.With wit, wisdom, and an erudite piece of work, Michael Haag consigns these theories to the bonfire, as well as setting the historical record straight Whilst not an in depth look at every nut and bolt of Templar history, Haag presents enough of the early days of the founding of the order, their role in the crusades, and their subsequent decline and fall, to whet to the appetite for further reading numerous links are provided in the fu...

    There are so many myths and, frankly, misinformation in print and cinema about the organization of crusader knights called the Knights Templar that I no longer knew what to believe So I was looking for a book which would dispel the fiction and myth and report the history of the Templars The Templars History Myth by Michael Haag was did just that In the book Haag details the histor...
