With very little previously published on the development of this popular Order this is an valuable and most welcome addition to masonic literature written by a respected and knowledgeable author.

In tracing the development the author examines the ritual, clothing and officer structure of Knights Templars together with overseas Orders.
This volume contains much information and source materal never published elsewhere providing the reader with an authorative insight into the ever popular masonic order.
