Lucas Beaumanoir (Ivanhoe) Lucas Beaumanoir is a character in Sir Walter Scott’s 1829 classic medieval adventure novel, Ivanhoe. Lucas is the Grand Master of the Order of the Knights Templar, the Christian sect that excelled on the battlefield during the Crusades. As such, they were the football stars of their day, but Lucas goes a step beyond. As is so often the case with religiously ordained cults, the members have begun to see themselves as all-important and godlike, fully deserving of any and all spoils from their ventures. Taking seriously his duty to maintain the peace and restore a semblance of order to his community, Lucas is determined to do the right thing at all times. Unfortunately, principal over person becomes his modus operandi. If this means burning the beauteous Rebecca at the stake for witchcraft, so be it. This is a romance, after all, so Rebecca will be saved and Lucas and his knights will be banished from the kingdom. A good case against the cult of the cult.
