The mysterious and wealthy Knights Templar led the Crusades for almost 200 years. But why did the Church reject them as heretics in 1307?
Controversial and compelling, Secrets Of The Cross pushes aside centuries of tradition to expose fascinating secrets at the heart of the Christian story.
Away from the celebrity glare of The Da Vinci Code, new light can now be shed on the Templars, based on new archaeological evidence.
The truth starts to emerge about an idiosyncratic conglomerate of warrior-monks, ultimately leading us to an extraordinary conclusion: corporate greed was potentially the beginning and end of the story…
Armed with the Chinon parchment – explosive new historical evidence from the Vatican which contains de Molay’s startling confession – this film cuts a swathe through the peculiar, myriad myths surrounding the trial of the Templars.
