Freemasonry and the

Knights Templar

This exploration of the remarkable people and influential activities of the Knights Templar and Freemasonry is truly stunning. It sheds considerable new light on how these brotherhoods' practices, symbols and rituals took shape and affected the world around them. 

"Born in Blood" began this work before its author passed away in 1996. Now historian Sanford Holst has brought together many more discoveries that bring to life these societies' leaders and far-reaching influence. The roots of  Masonry are traced to Solomon's Temple, the rise of Christianity, and the Crusades. This society's relationships with stonemasons and the Knights Templar also take on new and significant meaning. 

We come to see how these people were active in events that caused the fall of kings in Europe, the rise of democracy, and the Vatican's loss of its supreme position atop the Christian world. After this secretive society emerged into public view in 1717, it had a strong influence on George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and other Masons who helped create a new country in America.

All of those struggles are seen through the experiences of people who lived through these events -- often told in their own words and drawn from remarkable collections of records dating from those times. Masonry and the related order of Knights Templar remain active around the world, and their influences are still felt in our lives today. Forty-five illustrations brighten this memorable journey of discovery. 

Knight Templar Magazine says:

"A well-written and nicely illustrated book, easy to read, well researched, and highly recommended."
