First off I would like to point out that the Templars were _Knights_ 
Templar. Not particularly nocturnal beings.

Next, I have to tell you that the subject has been thoroughly 
research by many scholars, including those with decades of work in 
medieval history. Perhaps your question would best be asked of 
yourself: what is it about the subject that intrigues you, and what 
do you think that you could add to the corpus of scholarship?

And lastly, research and writing of this nature is a lifetime's 
undertaking. I have a degree in Medieval Studies, and I know that I 
would not want to set to that sort of task without many more years of 
study. I think that you should probably finish high school first, and 
get a couple of years' general studies at university before you take 
on such a momentous task.
