James Bond - ‘The Knights Templars’

Founded around 1118 to protect pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem, the Templars were among a number of orders formed
in the wake of the Crusades which combined the ideals of knighthood with religious vows.
The talk will examine their foundation, the ways in which they developed their landed properties in western Europe
to support their functions in the Holy Land, and the circumstances which led to their dramatic suppression in 1312.
