This book contains 42 papers delivered at the International Conference on Military Orders held at Clerkenwell, London, in September, 1992. There are five sections covering the Hospitallers, the Templars, the Teutonic Knights, the Spanish Orders, and the perceptions and role of the orders.The impact of the military orders on European History has been profound, both in what they achieved and in the way interpretations of these achievements have since shaped European perceptions. Their influence can be found in places as far apart as Lithuania and Andalusia, Scotland and Palestine, and their chronological range extends from their origins in the 12th century down to the present day.This importance is fully reflected in this book, where the latest research is brought together through the contributions of scholars from 13 countries.

Malcolm Barber is Emeritus Professor of Medieval History at the University of Reading, UKReview:
'The editor, Malcolm Barber, is to be congratulated for the way in which he has given to this collection a coherence rarely achieved in works of this kind...this excellent book..leaves the reader anxious to find out more.' The Catholic Historical Review 'All scholars and students interested in the related areas of the Order of the Militia of the Temple, the crusades, and heresy will rejoice in the appearance of this collection...Barber has provided a marvellous collection in this volume. Any crusades historian, historian of the Latin East, or specialist in heresy or the military orders would omit this material at his or her peril. The exhaustive notes, especially to primary sources, make these articles a veritable treasure trove.' Parergon, Vol. 15, No. 2
