By Thomas


This book delves into the transformative role played by Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153) in reshaping Christian discipleship during the first half of the twelfth century CE. At the heart of this transformation lies the emergence of the Knights Templar-a military order founded in the interlude between the First and Second Crusades (1095-1146). Bernard's visionary ideas and theological justifications paved the way for a groundbreaking concept: the fusion of violence into the framework of devout Christian life through the agency of the Knights Templar.
