4.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough, 5 Aug 2008

An excellent read. Having heard them mentioned in 'The Da Vinci Code' (film and book), and having visited temple church in London I was fascinated to learn a little more about them. This book is heavily laced with names and dates and direct extracts from writings of the time. It lays open several possibilities for their demise without the author ever really needing to force his own opinion on you. It's certainly left me wanting to know more about them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excilent, 2 July 2009
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about the Templar's as it is full of interesting facts presented in a way that makes it an enjoyable read as well (explains what happens and why rather than assuming you already know key events so its not a heavy read).

5.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing read, 22 Oct 2007
I always hated history as a kid, so i have a lot of catching up to do. I have been led on a journey that i thought would take a couple of years to complete. From Virgil and Homer, to Dante and more modern works from Baigent, Anthony Beevor and William L Shirer. This journey will never end all the while there are books like The Rise and Fall of the Knights Templar. Some history books are more heavily laced with personal opinion than others. This book seems to deal with the facts as far as my cross referencing shows, which if i'm honest could have gone alot further. But it has tempted me in to reading alot more on the subject, and that cannot be a bad thing.
