On TV: The Last Templar
“The Last Templar,” a four-hour mini-series set for 8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 25 and Monday, Jan. 26 on NBC, might be of interest to people familiar with the history of the templars.
This is not an endorsement, simply an update.
According to NBC’s Web site, the templar knights were a wealthy military force, serving as protectors of Christian pilgrims who traveled to the Holy Land in the Middle Ages.
The templar knights were said to be about nine in number, according to templar history.com. The men gathered together after the First Crusade (1095-1099) and were lead by Hughes de Payens. They offered their help to the Patriarch of Jeruselam and had the mandate of protecting Christians attempting to visit shrines sacred to their faith in the Holy Land, according to the site.
It will be interesting to see how TV translates author Raymond Khoury’s book “The Last Templar” to the small screen.
