Knights Templar in London subject of new book

The 13th century Temple in London, the headquarters of the Knights Templar in the city, is a round church, but it has also served as a bank and document storage facility. Christopher Howse of the Telegraph looks at a new book on the Templars, The Temple Church in London.

The book, edited by Robin Griffiths-Jones, the present Master of the Temple, and Professor David Park of the Courtauld, looks at the history of the Knights Templar's London facility, its relationship with the monarchy, and its near destruction during World War II.
