Both admired and vilified, the mystique surrounding the order of holy knights remains a powerful force to this day. In this issue we explore how the military order of the Knights Templar began in the twelfth century, the ways it operated on and off the battlefield, and the fascinating legacy they have in today’s culture. Also, the Battle of La Forbie - where the Templars and other Crusaders would face off against the Khwarazmians - is recounted in this issue.
