Exhibition catalogue "The Knights Templar : A History, Our Treasure" shown at Hôtel-Dieu-le-Comte, Troyes (June 16 - October 31, 2012).

This brotherhood of monks and soldiers not only took vows of poverty, chastity and obedience; they also vowed to devote their lives – and if necessary to sacrifice them – to the defence of the Holy Land.

In this book, the most authoritative experts in this field bring to life the age of the Templars, in both the East and the West. Finally, they explore the many facets of the myths that still surround them. What were the reasons for their arrest and trial? Was there really a treasure? Did some Templars manage to flee and to found a new order? And how have these mysteries provided inspiration for both literature and the cinema?
