THE POOR KNIGHTS OF CHRIST AND OF THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMON
Following many years of research into the Order of the Temple and the traditions it was heir to, a new Templar study has been prepared. This is a two volume work on the Order, entitled KNIGHTS OF THE TEMPLE; the first book bearing the subtitle Warfare and Earthly Glory, and the second book bearing the subtitle Conspiracy and the Eclipse of Truth.
A main reason for writing this work was the desire to set forth certain truths concerning the Templars, truths which become evident when Templar traditions are examined in the light of particular religious, philosophic and theological ideas current in the middle ages; and coupled with this was the desire to present a different picture of the Knights of Christ, a picture which corrects much that has previously been misunderstood.
The system of symbolism inherited and used by the Order of the Temple was already of great importance in the mediaeval world; its uses were manifold, its significances fully in accord with Byzantine traditions and western Catholic theology. It was a vital spiritual system, expressed, indeed, in simple visual form, but employed as a dynamic pattern of relationships in ritual procedures and in theological treatises. The essence and the application of this symbolism is demonstrated in detail in Book 2 of 'The Knights of the Temple',Conspiracy and the Eclipse of Truth, where the Templar ideals and ritual practices are shown to have a solid foundation in Christian tradition, theology and philosophy.
