Amazing and TRUE! No more conspiracy theories.

The Templars are often shrouded in myths and legends. It is nice to get a factual and historical look at what the Templars really were.

Great survey!

Interesting as usual. This is a good follow up to topics mentioned in "Heaven or Heresy" and The New Concise History of the Crusades. And, I like the back ground info provided regarding recent overrated novels and movies tied to Templar History. I'm not surprised. Worth the listen.

Fantastic & Very Informative Thank you!

What did you love best about The Modern Scholar: The Lost Warriors of God?

First and foremost the delivery of this lecture is phenomenal. Easy to follow and not boring at all. Learned so much. I appreciate you Dr Madden.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Modern Scholar: The Lost Warriors of God?

Every lecture is extremely insightful. There is not one moment that I can gather because all lectures are equally as valuable as the next.

Any additional comments?

Please make a lecture on the Jesuits. You mention them in I believe your last lecture. Maybe you can create another lecture/audio by Modern Scholar on them?

Making the Crusades Understandable for The average person

He brought so much clarity on this topic. I’m especially happy that he brought up the modern lies, twists, and superstition. I read the chronicles of the Crusades from two eye witnesses, but this lecture filled in the gaps.

Eye opening

Very good information about a subject that has a lot of myth surrounding it. I enjoyed it.
