The Knights Templar - Paul Ivison
In 1118, nineteen years after the fall of Jerusalem to Christian hands, nine Knights arrived at the court of King Baudoin II (commonly referred to as Baldwin), ruler of the new kingdom. These Knights were led by one Hugues de Payens a member of the lower nobility of Champagne. The Knights stated that their mission was to protect the Pilgrims en route to the Holy Places of Jesus, and they had taken vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience to the teachings of Christ. This wonderful little book gives you a unique insight into the life of a Knights Templar as unlike any other title of its kind this books focus is on the duties beliefs and daily life of the Knights Templar rather than just their history.
