Synopsis

The Crusades: Crescent & The Cross
The struggle to retain control over Jerusalem raged between Muslims and Christians, coming to a head in 1096 as an epic battle played out. This program uses state-of-the-art computer animation to bring the battle to life, creating a historically fascinating look at an epic tussle. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

In Search of History: The Knights Templar
Few warriors could strike such terror into the hearts of their enemies as the dreaded Knights Templar. Blessed with a seemingly bottomless wealth that gave them absolute power over all of Europe and sworn to secrecy in regards to their mysterious rites and ceremonies, the sword brandishing band of fearsome monks were eventually captured and burned at the stake in the later days of the Crusades. With this release, The History Channel spirits viewers into the dark heart of the middle ages though interviews with noted historians, and re-enactments of central events in the history of the Knights Templar. With numerous questions still unanswered even after centuries of research, documentary filmmakers unearth numerous documents and artifacts in hopes of finding answers to one of history's greatest enigmas while attempting to find out if any trace of the order can be found within modern politics and society. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
