The mysterious, powerful, warrior knights forever linked with legend and history. An order founded after the conquest of Jerusalem in 1099AD. Within 200 years the Templars controlled lands from Scotland across Europe and into Asia. In the early years of the 14th century the Templars were charged with heresy, devil worshipping and other dreadful crimes. Templars throughout Europe were massacred and burned alive. The order was exterminated forever. Or was it? Myths and legends surrounding the extraordinary Templars have endured for centuries. Did some escape the massacres of 1314? Are there Templar Masonic links? Did Templars bring the Shroud of Turin to Europe? Does vast treasure still exist and do the Templars still guard the Holy Grail? Filmed on location in Europe and the Middle East and illustrated with maps, graphics and superb illuminated manuscripts this is the definitive history of the Knights Templar.
