The Knights Templar and Scotland By Robert Ferguson (History Press)

Places and books such as Rosslyn Chapel and "The Da Vinci Code" have focused attention on Scotland's Knights Templar. Who they were and what they did has been touched upon, but never properly explored. Close advisors to Scotland's early kings, they were major property owners and respected landlords in a harsh and unforgiving time. But they were also secretive and arrogant. Did they flee to Scotland just prior to their arrest on Friday 13 October 1307? Did they fight with Robert the Bruce at Bannockburn in 1314? And how did the Templars continue on after Bannockburn? This book intertwines Templar and Scottish history, beginning with an overview of the Templars, and then applying this to Templar life in Scotland. It describes the Templar arrests in France and contrasts this with the Templar Inquisition at Holyrood, then following the Templars from Bannockburn to the present.
