About the Author

James Wasserman is the author of the bestselling The Templars and the Assassins: The Militia of Heaven, The Mystery Traditions, and The Slaves Shall Serve: Meditations on Liberty. He is a longtime student of the occult sciences and lives in New York City.


"James Wasserman has gathered the most beautiful, authoritative, and complete collection of Crusader and Templar images available anywhere. But this is not just a picture book. Wasserman's text also gives us an exceptionally clear, historically accurate, and esoterically true account of the history of this most mysterious of medieval knightly Orders. His sense of the way in which Templar esotericism fuses Judaic, Islamic (Ismaili), and Christian elements is a welcome and convincing alternative to the usual conditioned view that sees the three great religions separate and opposed."--Christopher Bamford, author of An Endless Trace: The Passionate Pursuit of Wisdom in the West
"History is the blended story of individuals, issues, and the times in which they existed. Wasserman has done an excellent job of defining the times of the Knights Templar, the political climate, the position of the Church, as well as giving us the background of the men that were involved in the tradition."--Bonnie Cehovet,, Oct 2006
." . . this book sets an excellent foundation for research and understanding of this tradition."--Bonnie Cehovet,, Oct 2006
." . . one of the best illustrated and most honest accounts of the Templar. . . . this is an exciting read and a 'must have' for any bookshelf."--Skirmish, Jan 2007
." . . scholarly, yet accessible. . . a fascinating read."--Sophia Gift, The American, Dec 2006
"AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR makes the most of visuals from all centuries and is a recommended pick for any new age collection, even those who already have several books on the topic. Little is duplicated, here."--Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch, Feb 2007
