In this book, authoritative experts in this field bring to life the age of the Templars, in both the East and the West. Using previously unpublished archive documents, the authors trace the history of the commanderies of the Champagne region, which were some of the earliest in France. They describe the daily lives of the Templars, with their simultaneous activities as soldiers, merchants, artisans and farmers. 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?
