1.  When, Why, and How were they formed?
2.  How were they organized?
3.  What did the Saracens think of them?
4.  What did the Christians think of them?
5.  What did they think of themselves?
6.  What effect did they have on the Crusades and on the history of the Holy
7.  What effect did they have on Europe?
8.  How and Why did people join?
9.  How did they live after they joined?  How were they trained?
10.  Where did they get their money and what did they do with it?  (BTW this
question is very   important to their history.)
11.  How and why were they suppressed?
12.  What lasting effect did they have on our History?

     Once you can answer these questions you will have enough information to
begin organizing the real research.   You can't really understand the
Knights Templar unless you also understand the world in which they lived, so
you will need to study the Crusades, including the events that led to them.
Some Church history would be useful too.
