The book is a late medieval treatise on the Knights Templar and it does not cast them in a good light. The book is well aged and the ink is fading in places. The cramped handwriting can be hard to read at times. The book reveals the Templars apparently worshipped a strange god, often portrayed as just a severed head, and to whom they referred as “The Opener,” as well as by the more commonly known name of Baphomet (which transliterates into Greek as “wisdom”). More importantly, it actually mentions that a ritual to call forth a dark god was enacted in the area around Arques! Other details in the book make mention of two Templar families who lived in the area — the Blanchefort and de Hautpoul families.
