    Something maybe a little more light than that- I have just finished the novel " Harlequin " by bernard cornwell following the english king and knights with the welsh bowmen trying to capture large parts of the north of france in the fourteenth century. very well researched,a good story and from what I can gather,historically correct. very enjoyable story

    Indeed he is a good writer. what I forgot to mention was that I have just finished reading this for the second time,which is a rare thing for me.
    The book that I read just before it was " sword of the templars " by paul cristopher which was a sort of divinci code type read,but also following history from the same period when the templars had wealth and power going into the fourteenth century. it was also a hard one to put down.
    I love history around that period,and a good bit of historical fact and a damn good yarn will keep me out of mischief for a couple of days

    Second time I had read it too.
    A goodishbook , well worth reading that I read some years ago involving the Templars was by Robert Shea , co author of the Illuminatus trilogy called All Things Are Lights . A sort of romance centred around the Cathars and their massacre by the French catholic nobility .

    The Return of the Magi, by Maurice Magre, is much in the same period, and has a section on the Cathars and Albigenses.
    Originally in French, and quite old now, it deals with how in almost all religions the original teachings were perverted by a priesthood ambitious to obtain power and wealth.
