The Knights Templar and the Church
by Charles G. Addison
The History of the Knights Templar – A story of power, greed, betrayal and mysteryThe Knights Templar were portrayed by the Roman Catholic Church as evil, perverted thugs bent on sacrilegious activities and practices. Charles G. Addison presents the other side of the coin and establishes the heroic, religious and dedicated nature of the Order long before the Papal documents exonerating the Templars were acknowledged by the Vatican. In this work we see the relationship between the Templars and the King of England, the organization and structure as well as the “torture confessions” extracted from the captured Templars. This is a detailed and fascinating account of the betrayal of the Knights Templar.
