Item Description...
A thorough examination of the history of the Templars in Spain and Portugal

* Explores the mysteries surrounding the location of Templar enclaves

* Examines the Templar connections to the Cathars and to the troubadour culture

* Looks at the Order's influence in the kingdoms of Aragon and Catalonia and the Spanish monarchy itself

The rise and fall of the Templar Order constitutes a fundamental and decisive episode in medieval history, and the destruction of the Order constitutes a pivotal point that fundamentally altered the direction of society. While much is known about the history of the Templar Order in France, home of its chief commandery in Paris, and in the Latin States of the Middle East, their contribution to events on the Iberian peninsula has until now remained obscure and unexplored.

Renowned Templar scholar Juan Garca Atienza reveals here the important role the Templars played in the Reconquista that saw the Moors driven out of Spain and demonstrates the great influence they exerted in the kingdoms of Castille and Navarre and the territories of Catalonia and Aragon. He examines the mysterious connections between the Templars and the Cathars and troubadours as well as the mystery surrounding the location of all the Templar enclaves in the Iberian peninsula. He also unveils the important role the Templars had as teachers of the Spanish king James I, known as the Conqueror, whose attempt to establish a universal theocratic empire may have been a reflection of Templar ambitions, and explores the Order's suppression in Spain and how it survived in Portugal by simply changing its name.

Mysteries Magazine review  Mar 18, 2008
There has never been another organization in history that has cast such a mysterious shadow over the human psyche than the Knights Templar.Now, renowned Templar scholar and historian Juan Garcia Atienza has written the definitive book on the Templar's activities in the Iberian Peninsula, exploring the crucial role the Templars played in the Reconquista, the pivotal event that drove the Moors from Spain. Atienza also discusses the dramatic influence the Templars had in the kingdoms of Castile and Navarre, as well as the territories of Catalonia and Aragon.
Atienza investigates the mysterious connection between the Templars and many aspects of the medieval world. Did the Templars learn great secrets while on the throne of Jerusalem? What connection did they have with the Kings of Portugal and why did they associate themselves with the heretical Cathar order? What did the Templars have to do with the creation of the troubadour movement of Spain? Why were they really excommunicated from the Catholic Church and where did they hide their fabled treasure? The Knights Templar in the Golden Age of Spain attempts to answer all these puzzling questions.
With the success of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, the market has been flooded with books about the Templars, some good, some terrible. Fortunately, The Knights Templar in the Golden Age of Spain is one of the best Templar books available today on Templar history in Spain.

I'll Put It This Way: The Book Would Have Been Better In Spanish  Jul 13, 2007
I'm not one to enjoy speculation or the strange theories authors come up with to explain things. So, if you're like me, this book wasn't worthy of note. However, because the book does go into Templar interests, castles, and activities in Spain, it's worth looking into.
Knights Templar  Jan 9, 2007
I have read many books about the Knights Templar. Yet, I was surprised when I read this book about their history in Spain. Other books I have read focus on other countries with no mention of Spain. It expanded my knowledge of the Knights Templar, knowledge that had been repressed for centuries. To my suprise, I discovered links to some of my ancestors. I had suspected it for a while as some of my geneology research seemed to point to it. Very interesting. I give it 4 stars only because I have read others that are less tedious to read, but anyone truly interested in the Knights Templars needs to read it.
Knights Templar joins other fine Grail books  Dec 31, 2006
The Knights Templar uses a wealth of historical evidence to support its controversial theories and I highly recommend it, particularly for its insightful explorations of the previously largely unexamined Spanish connections to the Grail. Also highly recommended are two other fine Grail books, one non-fiction and the other fiction, and both are by Michael Bradley, a renowned Grail expert who served as a researcher for the Da Vinci Code movie. Bradley's Swords at Sunset is a non-fiction work that contends the Knights Templar spirited the Grail to North America, primarly Niagara Ontario and Vermont state; while his fictional novel, The Magdalene Mandala is a wonderfully written thriller with a twisting plot that moves at break-neck speed. It also has well drawn characters and in the view of many is superior to the Da Vince Code. For anyone like me with a growing interest in the Grail, do yourself a favour and check out Knights Templar in the Golden Age of Spain; Swords at Sunset and The Magdalene Mandala, which sent my heart pounding. These are three very good books and they're highly recommended.
