Item Description...
The order of the Temple was a military-religious organisation that was set up to protect pilgrims and settlers in the Holy Land. The Templars believed they were God's warriors fighting on God's behalf and developed a fearsome reputation among the neighbouring Muslim rulers. This book examines the men who joined the order and why they joined it, focusing on those who fought in the Holy Land. Based on contemporary sources it provides an effective insight into the daily lives of the warriors, from their admission ceremony to their training, organisation in the field, and how they fought in battle.
Helen Nicholson is senior lecturer in history at Cardiff University. She has written extensively on the history of the military orders, the crusades in general and the Templars in particular. Her best-known publications include: 'The Knights Templar: A New History' (Sutton Publishing, 2001) and 'Templars, Hospitallers and Teutonic Knights: Images of the Military Orders 1128-1291' (Leicester University Press, 1993).

Simple history of the Templars  Apr 25, 2008
If you want to begin your studies of this fascinating order then this is probably an okay book to read.

Simple exposition of the history of the Templars with all the recently described mysteries expunged.

Small book, easily absorbed and understood.
Knights Templar: 1120-1312  Mar 16, 2008
The Knight Templar is another Ospery warrior collection on the most famous and mysterious Christian military orders that battled in the Holy Land during the Crusades. Do not let the outside fool you though, this is no comic book but a well researched, written and illustrated history of the Knights Templar.
Solid History  Mar 31, 2007
I appreciate this book's lack of mythical jargon and alleged conspiracies, but its simple focus on the appearance, lifestyle, and gear of the Templars. An essential and highly recommended title. Also has good plates.
A Factual History of the Knights Templar  Jan 21, 2007
Knight Templar 1120-1312, by Helen Nicholson is, like most of the books in the Osprey Warrior series, well-written and copiously illustrated.

Although only 64 pages in length, the greatest value of the book is its several photographs and illustrations allowing the reader to get a good `picture' of what Templar life was like.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Recruitment and Admission
Belief and Belonging
Appearance and Equipment
Living Conditions: On Campaign
Experience of Battle
Museums and Re-Enactment
Color Plate Commentaries

"Knight Templar 1120-1312" is a good introduction to the historical Knights Templar for those unaware of their history and a fair quick reference for those with a deeper background.

The book lacks any of the claims of Templar mysticism or its ties to Freemasonry, and remains focused on established history.

If you enjoy reading about the Knights Templar, than this book is definitely a worthwhile addition to your library.
Great Information For Such a Little Book  Sep 28, 2006
I like this book because it has useful, practical information, is written by scholars and it has good illustrations. I like the fact that the book focuses on what daily life would have been like for the warrior-monks and that the authors also talk about why people joined the Templars. One thing I did not know before reading this is that there were nuns who were part of the Templars, though they did not fight in the Holy battles and they were understandably segregated most of the time from their male counterparts.

I was very impressed with the descriptions of what they wore (which is very useful to me since I write historical fiction). I love the fact that the illustrations are so brilliant and detailed. One of the things that frustrates me about books relating to the Medieval period is that the illustrations are poor (unless it's a children's book and then you get little information). This book is great because it has the look of a young adult book, but the information appears to be well researched. It is definately history made easy and fun!
