Nine French knights encamped in Jerusalem in 1119 CE on the site of the original Temple of Solomon; hence they were called Knights Templar. A more mysterious and secretive group would be hard to find in history. They seem to have discovered the sacred geometry and proportions of Solomon’s temple and took this arcane knowledge back to France. Beginning in 1134 CE, eighty Gothic cathedrals were built over the next hundred years, starting at Chartres. Why? Then Chrétien de Troyes produced the first Grail story in 1182 CE, followed by Wolfram von Eschenbach with his Parzival tale in Germany. Come discover these amazing connections!
