In the year 1119, these noblemen found their calling as protectors of the faithful on a dangerous pilgrimage to newly conquered Jerusalem. Appearing as saviors on horseback, they spawned legends--but their arrogance, wealth, and secrecy made them targets of hatred and prejudice. Although history tells of only 200 years between their valiant rise and Now, historian Newman elucidates the mysteries and misconceptions of the Templars, from their true first founding and role in the Crusades to more modern intrigues, including: Were they devout knights or secret heretics? Did they leave behind a fantastic treasure, hidden to this day? How did they come to be associated with the Holy Grail? Did they come to America before the time of Columbus? Does the order still exist?--From publisher description

Defending the City of God : a medieval queen, the first Crusades, and the quest for peace in Jerusalem by Sharan Newman( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 352 libraries worldwide
"Jerusalem sits at the crossroads of three continents and has been continuously invaded for millennia. Yet, in the middle of one of the region's most violent eras, the Crusades, an amazing multicultural world was forming. Templar knights, Muslim peasants, Turkish caliphs, Jewish merchants, and the native Christians, along with the children of the first crusaders, blended cultures while struggling to survive in a land constantly at war. Defending the City of God explores this fascinating and forgotten world, and how a group of sisters, daughters of the King of Jerusalem, whose supporters included Grand Masters of the Templars and Armenian clerics, held together the fragile treaties, understandings, and marriages that allowed for relative peace among the many different factions. As the crusaders fought to maintain their conquests, these relationships quickly unraveled, and the religious and cultural diversity was lost as hardline factions took over. Weaving together the political intrigues and dynastic battles that transformed the Near East with an evocative portrait of medieval Jerusalem, this is an astonishing look at a forgotten side of the first Crusades.
