. 4 Episodes
This documentary series tells the full history of one of the most extraordinary organizations the world has ever seen: the warrior monks called the Knights Templar.
The Knights Templar tells the full story of the legendary warrior monks, from their origins as poor knights in the aftermath of the First Crusade to their meteoric rise as powerful bankers to King and Pope. Then accused of heresy and devil worshipping they were totally destroyed – or were they?
Did some of the Templars escape the massacres of 1314? And with them vast treasure? Did the surviving Templars clandestinely pass their knowledge and wealth down the generations to the present day? And just what exactly are the Templar and Masonic links? Do the Templars still hold the Holy Grail?
