The Secret Teaching
of the Knights Templar
A Critical Investigation
Translated from the German and edited with an Introduction by Eamon Kiernan
Heroes or villains? Christians or devil worshippers? The Knights Templar were perhaps the greatest of the military orders of the Crusades. Accused of heresy, the Order was suppressed by the Church in 1312.
Originally published in 1879, this treatise by one of Germany’s most eminent historians examines the secret teaching which lay behind the downfall of the Order.
