Mumbai, June 27, 2006: According to legend, the Templars no longer exist, extinguished long ago in the fog of time. But throughout the centuries there have been constant reports that the mystic and secret order does still exist. But where is it and what powers does it have? Find out in a special presentation, "The Blood of the Templars", which will be telecast on Saturday, July 1st at 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 2nd at 6:45 p.m. only on Star Movies.

In this special presentation directed by Oscar nominated Florian Baxmeyer, 18-year old David grows up assuming that his mother and his father have died when he was a baby. He is raised by a monk and is close to completing High School. He gets into a fight during a party and discovers he is stronger than he thought he was. Also, the blooding of an injury stops immediately and the wound heals within an hour. All of a sudden, the Priory of Sion and the Knights Templar show interest in the boy and the quest for the Holy Grail begins once again, with David being the one who can lead them to it.

The Templars were an unusual order in that they were both monks and soldiers, making them in effect some of the earliest "warrior monks" in the Western world. Members of the Order played a key part in many battles of the Crusades, and the Order's infrastructure innovated many financial techniques that could be considered the foundation of modern banking. The Order grew in membership and power throughout Europe, until it ran afoul of King Philip IV of France (Philip the Fair), who caused many of the order's members in France to be tortured into "confessions" and burned at the stake. Under influence from King Philip, Pope Clement V then forcibly disbanded the order in the early 1300s. The secrecy around the powerful Order of the Knights Templar, and the speed with which they suddenly disappeared over the space of a few years, has led to many different Knights Templar legends. These range from rumors about their association with the Holy Grail, to questions about their association with the Freemasons. Recent speculation about the Templars has further increased because of references to them in bestselling books such as The Da Vinci Code.

So don't forget to tune in to "The Blood of the Templars" on Saturday, July 1st at 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 2nd at 6:45 p.m. only on Star Movies to learn more about this mystic order.
