About the Author:

Michael Walsh is librarian at Heythrop College, University of London.

From Booklist:

Despite other implications of its title, this is a book of religious history, with few accounts of tactics and battles and much on the life and organization of the military orders, including the little-known women's houses of some of them. At least half the book is taken up with the evolution of Christian and Muslim doctrine regarding religious warfare, and with the secular and sacred factional brawling involved in shaping the confrontation that led to the first and subsequent Crusades. The three best-known orders--the Templars, the Hospitallers, and the Teutonic Knights--emerged from those Middle Eastern broils, but the most enduring achievement of any order was the role of the Knights of Calatrava and other Spanish orders in the Christian Reconquista of Iberia. Walsh packs his brief book with valuable information, argues that the alleged link between the Templars and the Freemasons is "a farrago of nonsense," and generously decks the pages with well-chosen illustrations of major sites of the orders' activities. A solid introductory text on the subject. Roland Green
