The Knights Templar: From History to the Twenty-First Century Mission: Nine Hundred Years Since the Foundation of the Poor Knights of Christ in the Temple of Jerusalem
(OSMTH Publications) (Volume 2) Paperback – April 1, 2017
by Pasi Pollanen (Author, Editor), Scott Simon (Editor)


In the present book, the history of the Knights Templar and subjects related to knighthood in general are analyzed from the perspective of several authors. The purpose of the book is to celebrate the nine-hundredth anniversary of the founding of a unique organization, the Poor Knights of Christ in the Temple of Jerusalem, which has created something permanent in spite of the stony road of the poor brethren and their modern-day equivalents. The book was prepared for the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem - OSMTH. This book is the first to study the roots of the 19th century Neo-Templars scientifically.
