Knights Templar

I have always been intrigued by medieval knightly orders, including the Knights Templar. I did a paper on them for a class a few years ago (before The Da Vinci Code made them a pop culture icon). Now the Vatican is about to release a document, a papal report, on the Templars that had been misplaced. While it isn't likely to confirm any conspiracy theorist's ideas, it should be very interesting nonetheless.

And while on the topic, I should mention that for those who want a good conspiracy novel involving the Templars, you should check out Foucault's Pendulum.
