    Karen Ralls offers a good amount of information, however there are relatively few articles dedicated to individual people, events and places. Fortunately, the book contains a very comprehensive index.

    Karen Ralls has produced a great primer on the Knights Templar. If you know nothing about this order of medieval warrior monks, then this is a good place to begin.
