Publisher's Summary

Arguably one of the most provocative, puzzling, and misunderstood organizations of medieval times, the legendary Knights Templar have always been shrouded in a veil of mystery, while inspiring popular culture from Indiana Jones to Dan Brown. In The Templars, author Michael Haag offers a definitive history of these loyal Christian soldiers of the Crusades - sworn to defend the Holy Land and Jerusalem, but ultimately damned and destroyed by the Pope and his church.
A best seller in the United Kingdom - the first history of the enigmatic warriors to include findings from the Chinon Parchment, the long-lost Vatican document absolving the Knights of heresy - The Templars by Michael Haag is a fascinating, must-listen book.

Narrator ruined it

After a few hours, I had to stop listening because the narrator is terrible. I listen in my car making the audio quality key. He buries the end of his words which makes names incomprehensible. Very disappointed.

The narrator is great but the rest is a waste.

I couldn't make it past 2 or 3 chapters. The author discounts the Exodus and guesses the Israelites were nomad bandits who took over Canna. Then he dismisses the size of Solomon's temple but gives credit to the account of the Quran claiming Salomon had power over demons. If you like the Davinci Code, this is for you. If you want a historical account then look elsewhere.
