Medieval warfare Vol VI.5 - Bernard's Chosen

The Knights Templar

Theme: Peter Konieczny, "Who were the Knights Templar? The rise and fall of a military order"

"We have left our lands and our loved ones, and have come here to raise up and exalt the law of God. So we rest here eating anddrinking and spending, without doing any work. We do not perform any deed of arms either, although this country has need of that.We obey a priest, and so we do no labour of arms. Let us take advice, and with our prior's permission we shall make one of us ourmaster, who may lead us in battle when necessary."

Theme: Helen Nicholson, "Why I write about the Templars: None is more illustrious than it is"

Helen Nicholson, one of the leading historians in the world about medieval military orders, tells us about how the Templarsfascinated her and what she has learned about them.

Theme: John Howe, "The Rule: Military secrets of the Knights Templar"

"No brother should turn his horse's head towards the back to fight or for anything else, while they are in a squadron." - John Howewrites about how the Templar's Rule prepared them for living the life of a monk, and the life of a warrior.

Theme: William E. Welsh, "Crusader catastrophe: The Battle of La Forbie"

In October of 1244, the Crusaders and their Muslim allies from Syria set out to fight a new threat - the Khwarazmian menace haddescended upon the Holy Land.

Theme: Danièle Cybulskie, "The afterlife of the Templars: From fighting injustice to ruling the world"

Heroes. Villains. Saviors. Destroyers. It's hard to think of another organization that has such a widespread reputation of beingboth good and evil in almost equal measure. In a strange twist of fate, Philip the Fair's defamation and destruction of theTemplars in the fourteenth century has given them an afterlife in the popular imagination that has reached all corners of theworld, far surpassing the reach of the medieval order. Given the relative brevity of their existence and the fact that theyultimately failed in their mission, what is it about the Templars that has kept us fascinated for centuries?

Theme: Cliff Repicky, "Bernard's chosen: Forged in the furnace of Holy War"

Special: Brian R. Price, "Bellifortis: Conrad Kyeser and his war-book"

Brilliant but strange, Conrad Kyeser created the Bellifortis in the early 15th century. His imagination would produce one of themost unusual treatises of the Middle Ages, creating devious weapons of siege warfare, Brian Price shows us how Kyeser describedeverything from underwater soldiers to chastity belts.

Special: Peter Konieczny, "11th century military wit and wisdom"
