Much has been written about the Knights Templar in recent years, most of it highly speculative and with no historical foundation. Helen Nicholson is a leading specialist in the history of this legendary medieval order and offers here a full account of the knights of the order of the Temple of Solomon, bringing the latest findings to a general audience.
Helen Nicolson, Ph.D., is the lecturer in Medieval History at the University of Wales, Cardiff. She has written a number of books on the templars as well as medieval orders. She is the author of "The Knights Templar," "The Knights Hospitaller," and "The Crusades."
