The History of the Knights Templars


By Charles G. Addison, Reprint 2001
Charles Addison’s 1842 classic is the most thorough, concise description of the Knights Templar ever written. Available again after a more than 50-year hiatus, it tells how the knights really began, why they achieved unprecedented wealth and power, and what led to their cruel downfall. A new Introduction by publisher David Hatcher Childress brings readers up to date on the fate of the Templars, who appear to have arrived with their fabulous treasure in North America long before Columbus left Spain. Softcover, illustrated, originally released in 1842, 396 pages.
