FRIEDERICH WERNER.  The Templars in Cyprus   
London 1886 FULL TEXT: English  

From editor's preface to the present edition:

Werner was a Freemason, and his religious notions, of which he makes "SIR ROBERT" the mouthpiece, where at the date of his writing this poem, of a theosophic order. In fact he aimed, at that time at establishing a New Religion of his own invention; though ultimately he became a Priest, and preached in Roman Catholic pulpits.
