Neither Greek Nor Jew: The Way to Freedom

By Sergio I. Nemirovsky


Publication Date: September 13, 2016

Britain, 14th century. King Edward II of England proscribes the Order of the Temple and arrests its members, but many manage to escape his sheriffs, finding refuge among friends or family. Such is the case of Sir David and his companions, prompted to seek safety elsewhere. They think of one place, an excommunicated land, where they will be able to secure the treasures of the Order, its secrets, and live by the tenets of their faith as Knights of the Temple of the Lord: Scotland. But the home of the Scots is in turmoil. King Robert the Bruce is at war with his English enemies and Scottish claimants to the throne, battling them with all his might. The refugees are called upon to help bring peace to the land, and they answer.

Product Description

Britain, 14th century. King Edward II of England proscribes the Order of the Temple and arrests its members, but many manage to escape his sheriffs, finding refuge among friends or family. Such is the case of Sir David and his companions, prompted to seek safety elsewhere. They think of one place, an excommunicated land, where they will be able to secure the treasures of the Order, its secrets, and live by the tenets of their faith as Knights of the Temple of the Lord: Scotland. But the home of the Scots is in turmoil. King Robert the Bruce is at war with his English enemies and Scottish claimants to the throne, battling them with all his might. The refugees are called upon to help bring peace to the land, and they answer.

Setting out to look for the means to raise an army for King Robert, the companions gather many friends and allies. Their quest takes them to various lands, from England to Scotland, and then to Ireland and the very heart of the Swiss Alps, where they establish several alliances vital for the war in Britain. All of their journeys are full of events that shape their personalities, preparing them for the ultimate battle.

Two stories are also told: King Robert the Bruce’s, securing his kingdom after losing almost everything he held dear, and King Edward Plantagenet’s, fighting mighty barons and earls that attempt to bring the English crown to its knees.

The tales arrive at a common point, as the climax approaches and an imminent clash between both monarchs builds up: King Robert fighting against possible annihilation; King Edward thrust into the war to keep his rule. It is then that the actions of the banished Templars are put to the test.

About The Author

Author

Sergio I. Nemirovsky graduated from the University of Buenos Aires with a degree in Biology. He later earned a PhD in Neuroscience and is currently researching the human genome. As apart as biology and medieval fiction may seem, for Sergio there are no boundaries between them. Each of his passions serve to build his spirituality and appease his curious mind. The writing of Neither Greek nor Jew: The Way to Freedom (Knox Robinson, 2015) was one of his most fulfilling achievements and the pleasure derived from this new phase of his life as a novelist is comparable only to the birth of his first daughter Kiriana. He credits his wife, Julieta, a biologist who specializes in the study of arthropod nervous systems, for the opportunity to nurture his writing. Since boyhood, Sergio has been interested in the Middle Ages and throughout his life, he has read extensively on Arthurian legends and European mythology. Some of his favorites include: Irish heroic tales, the Welsh Mabinogion and the Norse Edda, the Greek Iliad, the Roman Aeneid among others. Inspired by the likes of Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson, Sergio has taken a special interest in Scottish history, prompting him to write Neither Greek nor Jew: The Way to Freedom. He spent two years in the UK working on the novel and visiting many of the places featured therein. The novel tackles Robert the Bruce’s War of Independence and the controversial reign of Edward II. The novel also offers readers a possible explanation of what may have happened to the Templar Order after it was proscribed. Sergio lives with his wife and child in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
