The Knights Templar

History - 11 Lessons

Objective: The Knights Templar is a history course like no other. Featuring an hour's worth of video across 11 lessons, this course will provide learners with an introduction to this legendary order of holy knights. The course offers study guides, quizzes, and supplemental resources for those who wish to learn more. At the end of the course, those who have completed all of the lessons and passed all the quizzes will be rewarded with a gorgeous certificate of completion. 

This course will also explore many of the mysteries surrounding the secretive order: 

- Why did the knights dig secret passages into Jerusalem's Temple Mount? 

- Did they discover the Ark of the Covenant or the Holy Grail? 

- How did they suddenly go from being a poor order of religious warriors to one of the wealthiest institutions in the Holy Land? 

- Did the order really become tainted by occult practices and evil influences? 

- Why was the order suddenly, and violently disbanded? 

- Did one of these knights sail to the Americas --more than a century before Christopher Columbus? 

- And do the Knights Templar still exist today, engaged in secret work to protect what is holy and good? 

Requirements for Certificate of Completion: All videos must be viewed to 100%, and quizzes passed with a score of 80% to earn a certificate of completion.

GOD GAVE YOU THE POWER TO LEARN ANYTHING

Each class is segmented into short, easy-to-understand lessons tailored for each grade level. Each lesson comes with a video, a complete lesson plan, a study guide and an assessment. Objectives and expected learning outcomes are also included. Teachers are invited to use these lessons as a supplement to their existing curriculum, or as a centerpiece. All lessons are built using magisterial content including the New Jerusalem Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2nd ed), and other orthodox Catholic sources.

Catholic Online School takes learning out of the classroom and puts the control right into the hands of the student.  It is a self-paced learning system that gently guides any student through the learning process.  With the lack of quality education that many countries are suffering from at the moment, Catholic Online School truly could not have come about at a better time.
