About the Authors
  • Malcolm Barber's classic The Trial of the Templars recounts the dramatic demise of this elite military force in the fourteenth century. Having fought against Islam in the crusades in the East for nearly two centuries, in October 1307 the members of this respected Order were arrested on the order of Philip IV, King of France, and charged with serious heresies, including homosexuality and the denial of Christ. Finding resonances between the fourteenth-century trial and contemporary events, Barber's classic account endeavours to tackle the unresolved controversies surrounding the consequences of the trial, and includes discussions in the context of new work on the crusades, heresy, the papacy and the French monarchy.

    • The story of the Templars is one of the most dramatic, the best known but the most mythologised stories of the Middle Ages
    • This is the most in-depth and authoritative treatment of their trial ever written
    • In this definitive new edition the trial is discussed in the context of new work on the crusades, heresy, the papacy and the French monarchy
