Templars, Crusades and the Middle Ages

The following is a very limited selection of the really outstanding books on the topics covered.

Novels

Perhaps because there are almost no first-hand accounts accessible to us today, the novels are (or seem to be) more credible and believable. There are a great number of historical novels on the market that are set in medieval times and cover this subject matter. I highly recommend the following authors:

bullet    Sir Thomas Malory, Morte d'Arthur, first published 1485.
bullet    Robert Shea, and his All Things are Light/Das Kreuz und die Laute.
bullet    Maurice Druon, and his excellent histories/novels on France in the 14th century, starting with Die Fluch aus dem Flame.
bullet    Sharon Kay Penman, all her books but particularly The Sunne in Splendour.
