Editorial Reviews

Review

"a gem of a book which will entertain those with either a casual or deep interest in the subject" SUNDAY SUN "Simon Brighton has been obsessed by the Templars since childhood and this book is the fruit of that passion, providing meticulous detail and documentation of Templar sites" GOOD BOOK GUIDE "A must for history buffs and Dan Brown addicts alike, this book is a quality production offering a fair, sober and yet compelling overview of the mark the Knights Templar made on the landscape of Britain" BIRMINGHAM MAIL --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Simon Brighton was brought up in Lincolnshire, in the shadow of Temple Bruer, one of the most important Templar sites in the country. He became fascinated by the Knights at an early age and has pursued that fascination ever since. His photography of Templar sites has become well known - some of his images of London's Temple Church were included in the illustrated edition of The Da Vinci Code. When not documenting the Templars he is a psychiatric nurse, with an MSc in forensic psychiatry. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Not meant to be exhaustive or particularly academic, this book is a nice intro to the Templars in Britain. It emphasizes the physical sites but sprinkles good historical information throughout the write-ups. The book is clearly a labor of love and that kind of enthusiasm is contagious. There is a bit of mumbo jumbo mysticism mentioned, but mostly just to give context (the middle ages were very much about mysticism) rather than to play too much to Da Vinci Code type of interest. There are a lot of good photos. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by how good this book is.

If you bought this book looking for an exhaustive history of the Knights Templar, I feel you will be disappointed. It's a good tour guide to Templar sites in Great Britain but does not even scratch the surface of their history or the roots of the current controversy. The History Channel's DVD is far better as a starting point. Jim, Virginia Beach
