EPISODE 21 | The Knights Templar - Big 'Uns 2
They were the most powerful group in Medieval Europe, and then they vanished. Who were the Templars? Warrior-priests with good patronage? Keepers of the Holy Grail and other mystical secrets? Blasphemous gay Satan worshiping freaks? All of the above?
For centuries, people have claimed to have figured out the secrets of the Knights Templar and what they were really up to. This is one of the big 'uns.

I slipped when saying the name "Bruce Burgess" for some reason (maybe I was drunk?) and may or may not have mispronounced "Siol nan Gaidheal" but that's because I just don't care and couldn't even be bothered to check. Finally, I mention the Portuguese templars in Santarém but should also have mentioned their huge church and base in Tomar.
