Between 1307 and 1310, Pope Clement V and the devious King Philip the Fair of France brought to trial the crusading Order of the Knights of the Temple, one of the most powerful institutions of the medieval world. Jacques de Molay, the Temple's last Grand Master, was at the heart of the events in which the chivalric ideal was ousted by treachery and greed. Here, Alain Demurger traces Jacques de Molay's dazzling career and provides a vivid retelling of the drama of his and his Order's last days. A compelling account of one of the most gruesome episodes in European history.About the Author:
