The murdered magicians : the templars and their myth by Peter Partner( Book )

19 editions published between 1981 and 1995 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ruthless dissolution of the Knights Templars was only the beginning of a new and strange chapter in their history. In due course they became the focus of numerous beliefs based on their supposed occult powers, and by the eighteenth century the influence of the Templar myth was felt not only in the fantasies of occultists but even in the Gothic novel, with its frequent tales of monastic impropriety. In this widely-praised study Dr. Partner, as well as providing a succinct account of the rise and fall of the Templars, examines the fabrications and illusions about the history of the Order, from the Renaissance magicians to varieties of Templarism in our own time, and shows how a medieval act of political injustice grew into a modern fantasy. -- publisher description

The Knights Templar & their myth by Peter Partner( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bound by religious vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, the Knights Templar were a military crusading order engaged in religious war in the Holy Land. At the end of the thirteenth century, after their withdrawal from Syria, they became the apparently innocent victims of a campaign of slander and persecution mounted against them by the French government. The ruthless dissolution of the Knights Templer was only the beginning of a new and strange chapter in their history. They soon became the focus of numerous beliefs about their presumed occult powers, and by the eighteenth century their history had undergone a mythical metamorphosis - they figured highly in occult fantasies of magical practices and hidden knowledge as well as in the romance of the Gothic novel, with its frequent tales of monastic impropriety. In this widely praised book, Partner elucidates the history of the Templars as well as the beliefs that have developed around them in more recent times. From the tangled traditions of occultism to concepts of crusading chivalry, from political conspiracy to governmental greed and papal corruption, Partner shows how a medieval act of political injustice grew into a modern fantasy. -- from back cover
