The Knights Templar in the Golden Age of Spain
Available in Stock
Templar history in the Iberian peninsula has been relatively unexplored, but this book now highlights the Order’s decisive influence there during the 12th and 13th centuries. As well as examining their role in the expulsion of the Moors from Spain, the author examines the Templars’ connections with the Cathars, their influence on the ideology of the Spanish King James I and their survival in Portugal after the order’s suppression. Originally published as El Legado Templario.
