I have just two small criticisms of this book. First, a very small number of factual errors have crept in. For example, the caption to one illustration refers to the dissolution of the Templar Order by Pope Clement V, in 1307. In fact, it was King Philip IV of France who assaulted the Templars in 1307. But Pope Clement V did not dissolve the Order until 1312.
Second, there is no Bibliography and corresponding citations of external, scholarly sources. This could be a stumbling block to the serious reader who would like guidance to extend their study of the Templars. For myself, however, I find this approach a refreshing change from the often unnecessary, tediously incestuous tendencies of orthodox academia.
This book is half history and half coffee table book. The illustrations are sumptuous and the accompanying text has the gravitas you'd find in a straight history book. This is not a subject that would appeal to many people, but for the right history buff, Susie Hodge's book is divine.
their Muslim enemy. Near the end of the book the author mentions holy grail and the ark of the covenant, but in a factual way. The author admits at the start of the book that there are very few written records about the knights templar as most were destroyed. He admits that he has used a document found in the Vatican archives,as the basis for this book. I found it an interesting read. I gave four stars for all the above.
