What Will You Learn?

The Knights Templar is one of the most extraordinary military orders to have come out of the medieval era. Our fascination with this organisation has only grown over centuries. But why is that? There were several similar orders formed during that period, so why do we single out the Templars?

Primarily, it is for three reasons, and the Knights Templar Diploma Course sets out to explore and explain them all – how the violence of the medieval age turned religious in nature and the Knights Templar’s role in this, how an order so deeply committed to poverty became so wealthy, and how the powerful order disappeared so abruptly.

The course begins by giving context to the creation of the Knights Templar by describing the development of a united, Christian Europe, before exploring the Byzantine Empire, the development of Islam, and how the two came to engage in war with each other.

We’ll look at how the crusades began, the violent nature of Europe at the time, how the Church used that to its advantage and how the Knights Templar was formed.

You’ll discover the daily life of a Knights Templar, the rules by which they had to abide, the training they underwent, important battles within the Crusades that the Templars were part of, how they became one of the wealthiest religious orders in existence, and the role of women in the order.

You’ll learn how and why the Knights Templar ended at the hands of Philip IV of France. We’ll examine the stories of what might have happened to the immense treasure that the Knights Templar was supposed to have and what it may have included.

We’ll also look at some of the mysteries and legends associated with the Templars, including stories relating to the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant and the Shroud of Turin.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Understand how and why the Crusades developed and what some of the most important battles were
  • Learn how the Knights Templar was founded
  • Become aware of the day-to-day life of Templar knights and the rules by which they lived
  • Know how the Templars became wealthy
  • Become familiar with other religious orders in operation at the same time
  • Have an understanding of why the Templars came to be persecuted
  • Know the main legends associated with the Templars
  • Become familiar with today’s Templar organisations
