I think that is because of the aura of mystery that surrounds The Templars. The secrecy that surrounded the Order. As well as the legends claiming that they were custodians of The Holy Grail, The Ark of The Covenant, The Shroud of Turrin, etc. etc. etc. Also the tragic way in which they were persecuted. These are some of the reasons that people are so fascinated with the Templars, I believe.

Great points. A little off-topic but you had mentioned elsewhere that you were in the Knights of columbus. What made you decide to join that Order?
