The Knights Templar

2001 NR

Through interviews and historical reenactments, this thought-provoking program explores the rise and fall of the Knights Templar, a brotherhood of French soldiers who protected Christians as they made pilgrimages to the Holy Land. Led by Templar historian Malcolm Barber, a scholar of medieval history, the discussion examines the knights' role in the legend of the Holy Grail as well as their contributions to modern banking.
