The Temple and The Lodge
Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh
A work which attempts to document the flight of the Knights Templars to Scotland and then tries to connect that organization to current Freemasonry. Those who like interpretations of history (i.e., historical fiction) will find this book interesting but serious scholars will find it lacking. The disappearance of the Knights Templars remains pure speculation and no new historical proof of the claims are provided here. This book, like The Hiram Key, has many reviews; as a result, we have not attempted to duplicate.
Some Masons who wish to find an answer to the unknown origins of
Freemasonry have embraced this book. There is, however, far too much speculation to permit
it to be accepted as fact.
