Episode 1 Knights Templar – Delve into the myths and mysteries of the legendary medieval order – the Knights Templar. The Templar have recently attracted global attention following Dan Brown’s best selling novel The Da Vinci Code, where they are presented as mysterious protectors of the Holy Grail.
