On this website and in The Temple publication you can read the latest discoveries written by the coffee table student as well as by renowned authors such as Robert Lomas, Lynn Picknett, Evelyn Lord and Stephen Dafoe.

Founded in the early 12th century, the Knights Templar became famous for their banking system, and strict vows of obedience, chastity and poverty. Based on his spiritual perceptions, here, Steiner speaks of the Templars' connection to the esoteric tradition of St John, their relationship with the Holy Grail, and their dedication to Christ.
