Henry Lincoln and others explore the mysterious history of the Knights Templar, a sect of warrior monks who discovered a most compelling secret during their quests to the Holy Land and preserved that secret through ritual and symbology.
Originally a BBC documentary, this program formed the basis for Holy Blood, Holy Grail– a book Lincoln co-authored with fellow BBC researchers Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh– which traces the Templar legacy through to modern times.
This program is well worth watching if you are interested in the history of secret societies, medieval folklore, or the Crusades. It also paints an interesting panorama of Southern France and the beauty– and mystery– that permeates the landscape. – amazon.com
