Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
A remarkable and exciting book, it is sure to appeal to readers everywhere, and especially to the readers of the paranormal who are fascinated by the Templar legends. The book is based on hard archaeological and forensic evidence. The book reveals the true story of how two major European Templar families combined their forces to establish a vibrant, new commonwealth in American approximately one-hundred years before Columbus.
An important approach to legends surrounding the Knights Templar, the truth reveals them to be most innovative explorers. These medieval warrior monks had distinct and documented links with the Americas, as well as the Rex Deus which was the supposed bloodline of Jesus Christ. This happening decades before the pre-Columbus touchdown in the Americas!
The book is like reading a mystery story, each action leads to another revealing yet another twist and turn in this strange but true account. Both authors of the book are connected with the European Templar Heritage Research Network, and both are co-authors of Rosslyn.
This finely researched book traces in detail the Templar legacy. It continues through the intricate foundation of Freemasonry, the founding of America as a nation, and the drafting of the United States Constitution. At every turn, the influence and direction of the Templars is felt, and revealed. That they had established a beachhead in the Americas long before Columbus, and started a communication and trade line, is documented. Their efforts to create a new commonwealth in America to escape the Inquisition and Catholic Church repression was a success.
The Kinights Templars have long been a source of imaginative fiction. This is their true story, and explains their lasting success. Those who find this book an adventure in reading will also enjoy the movie, "National Treasure," starring Nicolas Cage, released in November 2004.
Topnotch reading entertainment, Templars in America also reveals the true facts about the influence of the Knights Templars in the United States and Canada. Highly recommended.
