For those of you interested in the Knights Templar, keep an eye open for Barbara Frale’s The Templars: The Secret History Revealed. Though it’s hardly as comprehensive a history of the Templars as one might like, it does present Frale’s findings in the Vatican Secret Archives of the papal inquiry into the Templars and what was discovered therein, as I’ve alluded to before, to an English-speaking mass audience for the first time. She does not, however, find historical precedent for this.
Templar aficionados need to buy this. I mean you, Ken Hite!
