about

A fact-based treasure hunt through time…
 
The year 1120 A.D.: Hugues de Payns and eight other men of French high nobility gather in Jerusalem. Their pretense: Guarding the pilgrimage routes after the conquest of Jerusalem by the crusaders. Their real mission: Digging and searching beneath the Temple Mount for a mysterious object.
 
When they return to France in 1128, they own the most dangerous artifact in European Christendom. Suddenly, the Order of the Knights Templar — as they now call themselves — becomes incredibly wealthy. Suddenly, huge Gothic cathedrals rise from the soil of Northern France — and with them a secret architectural code left by the Knights Templar that up to the present day marks the way to the hiding-place of the most important archeological relic in human history.
 
Following author Tobias Daniel Wabbel’s research and investigation throughout Europe, this book finally solves the mystery of the legendary treasure of the Knights Templar. Both a travel guide to the secrets of the treasure of the Knights Templar and an enthralling tale, The Templar Treasure will shake commonly held beliefs in this interconnected history and renew interest in it.
Tobias Daniel Wabbel has published six nonfiction books in his native German on subjects that range from the search for radio signals of extraterrestrial intelligences and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) to the science-theology debate and a new theology after the Holocaust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Read If you are interested in the history of the Templar order and wonder where their great treasures and artifacts may be hidden, this is a must read. Mr. Wabbel writes in a matter that makes you feel like you are with him as he explores key locations in Templar history and his eye for details in the places he explores is fascinating. I am an avid reader of all things history and flew through this book from beginning to end, which is something that I only do when I get completely involved in a book. I highly recommend it!
