Some of those are met, but the events following the loss of the Holy Land in 1291 plunge him into a severe personal crisis. He overcomes the crisis, rises to new heights, penetrates the deepest esoteric secrets of the order, and exposes them in a series of covert letters to the Beguines in the hope that they will disseminate them into the public mainstream. After the dissolution of the order he is tried for heresy, barely escapes being burned at the stake, writes his memoirs and hides them in a cave.This novel is meticulously researched and as historically authentic as can be. Above and beyond its historical accuracy, it gives the reader rare and precious insights into the daily life, the religious practices, the secret initiation rites as well as the secular and spiritual goals of the order of the Temple. It is vividly and compellingly written, as if the author had been there himself and experienced what he describes.Perhaps the authors authoritative knowledge about the mystical order of the Temple is rooted in his own mystical exeriences which enabled him to obtain knowledge that can only be intuited by direct mystical experience? Or, perhaps, he found something conclusive in the Templar cave which he himself excavated in the location dsecribed in this novel?
