The Templars: History and Myth, by Michael Haag, is published in hardback by Profile Books, London, 2008.
'Here at long last is a history of the Knights Templar - and their secrets - that you can believe in.' - The Scotsman
'Michael Haag, in his well-knit narrative, gets through an enormous spread of history, helpfully telling readers what the Bible has to say about the Jewish Temple before running through the Roman, Muslim and Crusader centuries. The after-history of the Templars is dominated by the imaginings of Freemasons and the conspiracy fancies of scarcely distinct alternative historians and novelists.' - Daily Telegraph
