This study includes a translation of all testimony heard during the Templar trial in Cyprus in 1310 or 1311. The trial is of great importance to the study of the history of the order because of the large number of Templar witnesses, 76, many of high rank, and the ancillary testimony of 56 noblemen, burghers and members of the regular and secular clergy.

What makes the trial particularly significant is that torture appears not to have been used, allowing witnesses to give their opinion of the order free of the usual constraint.;A large amount of testimony omitted from the Latin edition appears in this volume. Witnesses are cross-referenced to other Templar trials, of to Cypriot notarial documents. The work is completed by photographs, maps, an index, lists of witnesses and a bibliography.
