Knights Templar in Britain book.

Knights Templar in Britain book.

The Knights Templar in Britain" traces the way in which the Templars received support from the Kings and became a part of feudal society, with diverse holdings across the entire country. She also shows the earlier origins of the financial system in England and how the royal and financial roles of the Temple spread to connections across Europe.

In medieval Britain the Templars had no military function. Their importance nationally came from their role as advisers and councillors to the crown, and bankers and holders of safe-deposits to the crown and the nobility. A percentage of their produce had to be sent east, but as Britain was far removed from the theatre of war, this was usually sent as a percentage of cash profits, although one estate, Rothley in Leicestershire, was supposed to send all their profits east. There were more Templar estates in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire than other counties, but this was because they were large counties with land to spare.

The only book to cover the Knights Templar in Britian. Evelyn Lord is an expert in the local history of Britain and the author of the hugely successful Investigating the Twentieth Century (2000). She is based at Cambridge University. Gives a crucial insight into history of the Crusades - the most popular sub-section of medieval history interest. Offers encouragement and advice to the reader on how to explore local sites and remains.

The Knights Templar In Britain examines exactly who became knights, what rituals sustained them, where the power bases were, and how their tentacles spread through the political and economic worlds of Britain before their defeat at the hands of the Inquisition some two hundred years later. While their campaign in the Middle East and travels are well-known, their huge influence across the British isles remains virtually uncharted.

The Knights Templar in Britain traces the way in which the Templars received support from the Kings and became a part of feudal society, with diverse holdings across the entire country. It is these dubious allegiances with the Kings that led to their downfall and, ultimately, the loss of the Holy Land.

Comments:
Kendis
Serious scholars are so badly-needed when it comes to the subject of the Templars. This book was written by one of the very best in the field. How refreshing it is to read a SERIOUS and DIGNIFIED work about the Templars instead of the usual nonsense-filled trash journalism we get from these pathetic 'freemasons' and 'occultists' and hack writers who possess not an ounce of integrity or honor. This book is essential reading for all serious students of the Order's glorious and HOLY history.
