This issue focuses on the influence, impact, and legacy of the military orders. We look at the Hospitallers and the beginnings of public access to medical care. Further north, we explore Transylvania and see how the Teutonic Knights expanded into Romania and what part they played in the Baltic Crusades. We examine the Templar banking juggernaut and see how they became one of Europe’s first “international banks.” We also see how the extraordinarily powerful Templars, who once had kings in their debt, were swiftly and completely wiped out by the early fourteenth century. Who benefited from their demise? How true are the bizarre rumors about them today? It’s all in this issue!

Happy Veterans Day and 11/11!

“The Up-Side of Down” was inspired by a 2009 assault and battery that hospitalized me with multiple facial fractures, severe eye trauma, and a concussion. My signature icon, which I saw flashing in my head during my concussive state, is a key repeating element in this series that represents life growing from death and discovering the positives in negatives.

I have been editing photographs of soldiers from WW1 for the past two hours now. This is not how I planned to spend my days off. 

Also, if any of you are a military uniform expert, please do get in touch with me. Pretty please!
