The Knights Templar: From History to the 21st Century – 900 years Since the Founding of the Poor Knights of Christ in the Temple of Jerusalem seeks to solve some of the mysteries surrounding the Order, through careful exploration and verification of documents which are still coming to light. By applying the methods of scientific inquiry, creating hypotheses, and considered discussion that will allow the drawing of conclusions, a picture emerges of modern Knights and Dames as heirs of the Christian spirit and social capital of medieval chivalry.
As will be shown in this book, the spirit of chivalry, of being of service to humankind, and of a willingness to provide protection and support those in need has never truly died. It lives on in the men and women who pledge themselves to lives of service to others. It lives on in those who choose to carry on in the spirit of those ancient knights; to don the mantle and offer themselves in service to protect the Pilgrim, to provide help wherever needed, and to work in Christian charity on behalf of a broken world . . . this is the legacy of the Order in the Modern Era.
Its release is timed to coincide with the preparation for the celebration of the 900th anniversary of the founding of the original Order, The Knights Templar: From History to the 21st Century promises to engage the reader at several levels: for the casual reader, it provides information and insight; for the inquirer, details and documentation with over 2,000 footnotes to answer some of the nascent questions concerning the order; for the scholar, a deeper knowledge of the history of the Order, and paths for further exploration.
