Description

The Knights Templar and the Church
The idea of a religious military order during the Middle Ages was a novelty. But with the advent of the Crusades, the military order's ideals included both a mastery of the ascetic lifestyle and that of the broadsword.

This event marked the beginning of a new Christian Mecca.
