The Order of the Temple was founded in 1119 with the limited aim of protecting pilgrims around Jerusalem. It developed into one of the most powerful corporations in the medieval world which lasted for nearly two centuries until its suppression in 1312. Despite the loss of its central archive in the sixteenth century, the Order left many records of its existence as the spearhead of crusading activity in Palestine and Syria, as the administrator of a great network of preceptories and lands in the Latin west, and as a banker and ship-owner. Because of the dramatic nature of its abolition, it has retained its grip on the imagination and consequently there has developed an entirely fictional 'after-history' in which its secret presence has been evoked to explain mysteries which range from masonic conspiracy to the survival of the Turin Shroud. This book offers a concise and up-to-date introduction to the reality and the myth of this extraordinary institution.

The Knights Templar In Britain examines exactly who became knights, what rituals sustained them, where the power bases were, and how their tentacles spread through the political and economic worlds of Britain before their defeat at the hands of the Inquisition some two hundred years later. Founded in the early twelfth century, the mysterious Knights Templar rose to be the most powerful military order of the Middle Ages. While their campaign in the Middle East and travels are well-known, their huge influence across the British isles remains virtually uncharted. For readers interested in Medieval History.

The Encyclopaedic Prosopographical Lexicon of Byzantine History and Civilization (EPLBHC) is a multivolume encyclopaedic lexicon aiming to cover the whole of Byzantine prosopography for the period c. 300 to c. 1500 CE by an estimated 7000 entries on the chief personalities, families and dynasties that gave the Byzantine Empire its profile. The Lexicon makes available in an accessible way a vast array of subjects, so that the real themes of Byzantine history can shine through. It aims to spell out for ready consultation, with detailed bibliographies of sources and secondary works, what it takes to be conversant with Byzantine history and civilization. The Lexicon consists of a collaborative international project: contributions have so far been submitted by over 70 scholars of a wide range of disciplines, including byzantinists, slavicists, orientalists and medievalists, based in numerous countries including Armenia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Russia, Serbia, Montenegro, South Africa, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States of America. The Lexicon will consist of eight volumes of approximately 470 pages each. The publication programme began in December 2007 with volume I (Aaron-Azarethes) and continues in December 2008 with volume II (Baanes - Eznik of Kolb). The rest of the Lexicon is expected to appear in five more volumes. An eighth volume will contain the general bibliography, a cumulative index and eventual addenda et corrigenda.
