How brutal was the Portuguese Inquisition? - Lost Relics of the Knights Templar


Dan Jones learns about the brutal practice of the Auto-da-fe, a public event in which heretics were paraded through town before suffering the Inquisition's punishment. Nazi loot, Roman coins, Viking artefacts, Celtic gold - and millions of pounds worth of classic cars and motor bikes... This is just some of the priceless treasure that regularly passes through the hands of the world’s most prolific (yet completely unknown) treasure hunters Hamilton White and Carl Cookson. But now they have discovered their rarest treasure yet – a hoard of Knights Templar treasure. With no significant Templar artefacts ever discovered before this could rewrite the history of the Order of the Knights Templar.
