The Knights Templar
Manage episode 342443849 series 3340882
Apparently there's a lot to unpack when it comes to the Knights Templar, from humble beginnings as a group of knights during the 1st Crusade meant to protect visitors to the Holy Land on the Pilgrim Road to basically becoming the Church's Black Ops unit and oh yeah, almost singlehandedly creating modern banking. When you become so powerful the King of France comes at you because he owes you money, I'd say you're a pretty big deal. Between the actual recorded history and the theories, we've crammed as much as we could into this one without needing lubricant. Join us won't you, you'll be happy you did.
