Secrets of the Knight Templar
secrets of the Knight Templar The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon (Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Solomonici), commonly known as the Knights Templar, the Order of the Temple ( Order du Temple or Templiers) or simply as Templar’s, were among the most famous of the organization existed for approximately two centuries in the middlages

Officially endorsed by the Catholic Church around 1129, the Order became a favoured charity throughout Christendom, and grew rapidly in membership and power. Templar knights, in their distinctive white and red cross were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades Non-combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom, innovating financial techniques that were an early form of Banks and building many fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.

The Templar’s' existence was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Holy Land was lost, support for the Order faded. Officially rumours about the Templar’s' secret initiation ceremony created mistrust, But King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Order and was obsessed by tales of a vast Templar Treasure and took advantage of the situation. In 1307, many of the Order's members in France were arrested, tortured into giving false confessions and then Burned at the stake under pressure from King Philip, Pope Clements disbanded the Order in 1312. The abrupt disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends, which have kept the "Templar" name alive into the modern day.

King Henry (1154–1189) granted the Templar’s land across England including some territory by Castle Barnard on the River Fleet where they built a Round Dutch, patterned after the Knights Templar headquarters on Temple Mount. The Order was also given the right of use of St Clement Danes.

In 1184 the Templar’s' headquarters was transferred to the New Temple (Temple Church) in London where once again they built a round church It was consecrated in 1185, and became the location for initiation rituals. In 1200 Pope innocent the III issued a Papal Bull declaring the immunity of persons and goods within the houses of the Knights Templar from local laws. This ensured that the New Temple became royal Treasures well as the repository for the order's accumulated revenues. These financial resources provided the basis for the development of the Templar's local banking facilities.

King Richard 1 (1189–1199) confirmed the Templar’s' land holdings and granted them immunity from all pleas, suits and from Murdrium.
King John (1199–1216) had substantial financial dealings with the Knights Templar. At the time of Runnymede not only was Aymerie de mair present, but King John was also resident at the Temple when the Barons first presented their demands. He awarded them the island of Lundy as well as land at Huntspill, Cameley, Harewood, Radnage and Northampton.

King Henry III (1207–1272) also had substantial dealing with Templar’s, the king's Wardrobe being located there in 1225. He entrusted Templar knights with military, financial and diplomatic commissions, and even considered being buried in the Temple. He did in fact establish a Chantry there in 1231.

The first Templar House in England was in London. Early patrons included Earl Robert De Furries, King Stephen of England and Queen Matilda An inventory by Geoffrey Fitz Stephen reveals that by 1185, the Order of the Knights Templar had extensive holdings The involvement of Templar’s in financial matters is highlighted by Walter of Coventry's story of Gilbert de Ogrestan, the Knight Templar accused of embezzling taxes collected in the Saladin Tithe of 1188. He was severely punished by his contemporary Master.

King Edward 11(1239–1307) had accorded the Knights Templar a slighter role in public affairs, financial issues often being handled by Italian merchants and diplomacy by Mendicant orders Indeed Edward I raided the treasury in 1283.

When Philip IV, King of France suppressed the order in 1307, King Edward the 11 of England at first refused to believe the accusations. But after the intercession of Pope Clement V, King Edward ordered the seizure of members of the order in England on January 8, 1308. Only handfuls of Templar’s were duly arrested however. Their trial ran from October 22, 1309 until March 18, 1310 in front of Deodatus, Abbot of Lagny and Sicard de Vaur. Most of the Templar’s acknowledged their belief that the Order's Master could absolution was heretical, and were then reconciled with the church. However, William de la More refused to do so and remained a prisoner in The Tower of London until his death.

In 1312, under further pressure from King Philip IV of France, Pope Clement V officially disbanded the Order at the Council of Vienne. In 1314, the remaining Templar leaders in France were executed, some by being burned at the stake. Clement issued a Papal Bull which granted the lands of the Templar’s to the Knights Hospitaller, but this was ignored until 1324. Starting in 1347, the priests started letting (renting) part of the Temple to lawyers, from which the evolution of the Inner Temple and Middle Temple as Inns of Court derives. Templar Survival in England

Between October 13, 1307 and January 8, 1308 the Templar’s went unmolested in England. During this period many fugitive Templar’s, seeking to escape torture and execution, fled to apparent safety there. But after repeated pressure from Philip IV and Clement V on Edward II, a few half-hearted arrests were made. During a trial running from October 22, 1309 until March 18, 1310 most of the arrested Templar’s were forced to acknowledge the belief that the Order's Master could give absolution was heretical, and were officially reconciled with the church, many entering more conventional monastic Orders.

Most Templar’s in England were never arrested, and the persecution of their leaders was brief. The order was dissolved due to damaged reputation, but given the pope and church's judgement of the order as free from guilt, all members in England were free to find themselves a new place in society. Templar lands and assets were given to the Order of the Hospital of Saint John, a sister military order—though the English crown held onto some assets until 1338. The largest portion of former Templar’s joined the Hospitallers, while other remaining members joined the Cistercian order, or lived on pension as lay members of society. The loss of the Holy Land as a base for war against the heathen had removed the primary reason for Templar existence, and the dissolved order now faded into history, in England as well as the rest of Europe. No clandestine secret-keeping, hiding, or underground organizations were necessary, though stories from later centuries often make use of the idea of a continuing, secret Templar presence

Royston Caves Royston Caves
St Catherine & Christ carved in Royston

St Catherine & Christ carved in Royston Cave by 'fugitive Templar’s'. Modern tradition has it that after the persecution began the Templar’s was forced to meet in caves, tunnels and cellars in Hertfordshire and elsewhere in southeast England. However, the brief and modest persecution in England is unlikely to have necessitated this, as remaining members could, even around 1310, met at the house or room of a friend not under arrest—which would have been most Templar’s.

But after lying undiscovered for at least 300 years workmen accidentally stumbled upon Royston Cave (August of 1742), hidden under a heavy millstone and a covering of soil. The cave's discovery created much excitement. Today it still awes and inspires visitors who can see carvings depicting, among other images, knights, St George. Before the brief persecution, the Templar’s, assuming the cave was theirs, had no reason to hide below the ground, and they had wealth and access to stonemasons if they required religious carvings. It is thus suggested by storytellers and a few historians that Royston Cave is evidence 'fugitive' Templar’s continued to meet and worship in secret after the disbandment.

There have been some highly questionable claims made about Royston Cave and its history, including the suggestion that its Templar builders may, in effect, have been early Freemasons. However, no evidence of this link has been produced at this time.

A couple miles away the Town of Baldock in Hertfordshire was a town founded by the Knights Templar and between 1199 and 1254 it was their English headquarters. The Hertford Mercury newspaper reported a warren of Templar tunnels beneath the town of Hertford, centring on Hertford Castle, where in 1309 four Templar’s from Temple Dinsley near Hitchin were imprisoned after their arrest by Edward II, who believed that they were holding a lost treasure.
The Templar’s in Rochester

Much of Strood, Rochester was a royal manor until Henry II gave it to the Knights Templar around 1159. The Templar’s had assembled a range of buildings in Strood by 1185, which included a timber hall, barns, kitchens and stables. The stone building, which has survived to the present day, was added around 1240. It consists of a vaulted undercroft supporting a large, undivided first-floor hall, approached by an external staircase. This was probably a part of the range of facilities designed for the temporary accommodation of travelling Templar dignitaries.

Over the years this hall was altered and enlarged as it passed through the hands of a number of owners. Many additions have been lost but two fine, 17th century brick extensions can still be seen today. These and the massive internal chimney were built by the Blake family, perhaps the richest in Strood at that time.

The estate was inevitably sold off bit by bit until the City of Rochester acquired what was left and decided to use the site for industrial development. The debate over the future of the house was interrupted by a gentleman named Mr Willis (a local councillor) in 1913 just 2 weeks after purchasing an 8.4 acre (3.4 hectare) plot of land directly East across the River Medway for a facility of what was to become known as the Seaplane Works. It was not until 1951 that work began to save the building and preserve it in the condition in which it can be seen today.

Several modern organizations claim links with the medieval Templar’s. Some, such as the (SMOTJ), also known as the "Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani" (OSMTH), have attained UN(Non-Governmental Organization) status. The SMOTJ admits that their group was founded in 1804, "based on the traditions" of the medieval order, which legacy they use to promote humanitarian causes. As Apossed to a fighting force sworn to defend The Church According to a 2004 article in one modern group in Hertfordshire (not affiliated to OSMTH) claims that although the medieval order officially ceased to exist in the early 14th century, that the majority of the organization survived underground. The Times article states that the group has written to the Vatican, asking for an official apology for the medieval persecution of the Templar’s. In Rome in 2004, a Vatican spokesman said that the demand for an apology would be given “serious consideration”. However, not surprisingly the Vatican insiders have said that Pope John Paul II 84 at the time, was under pressure from conservative cardinals to “stop saying sorry” for the errors of the past, after a series of papal apologies for the Crusades, the Inquisition, Christian anti-Semitism and the persecution of scientists and “heretics” such as Galileo it not being the church but the fault of a distant pope controlled by a dept ridden king.
Kolossi Castle is well worth a visit if you are at all interested in Cyprus history and culture. Situated off the Limassol to Paphos highway just outside the busy town of Limassol itself it fits into a great days sight seeing I visited it many times whilst stationed in the SBA (soveriegn base area) with the British Army. Just follow the brown tourist info signs off the highway and the castle is found on the main road to the RAF Akrotiri base. If you love cats the monastery of Saint Nicholas of the cats is only a couple of miles further along the same road.

The first medieval fort was built on the site early in the 13th Century by a group of Knights known as the Hospitallers. Also called the knights of the order of Saint John their mission in Cyprus was to aid and protect pilgrims visiting the Holy land. They vacated the castle sometime around the beginning of the 14th Century to set up headquarters on the Island of Rhodes. Their rivals the famous order of the knights Templar wasted no time in installing themselves in the nice empty fort where they stayed until the whole order was annihilated by King Philip of France and Pope Clement. They wanted the Knights Templar out of the way because they feared their growing power and it is also claimed that the pope owed the knights a lot of money and they wanted open access to hunt for the treasure.

With the Templar’s out of the picture the Hospitallers promptly moved back in until the crusades ended with the fall of Acre one of the most important Crusader strongholds. Despite the Island falling under the control of the Venetians marauding Turks virtually destroyed the original castle at Kolossi roundabout the middle of the 15th Century. The fort that stands on the site today was built sometime after that and it is in pretty remarkable condition for a 500 year old building (says a lot for Cyprus builders). Most of the building is open to visitors and there are a couple of small cafes in the castle grounds where you can relax after climbing the steps to the roof. In later years the castle became the administrative seat of power for the area concerning production and distribution of the famous Commandarie wine. This sweet Cyprus wine owes its name to those governors or “Commandaires” as they were known.

It is claimed that King Richard the lion heart married Berengaria of Navarre at Kolossi Castle and later crowned her Queen of both England and Cyprus. Many historians refute this however claiming that the dates clash with other historical documents linking him with crusades at the time. If it is true though it puts an interesting slant on the idea of getting married in Cyprus. After all, if it was good enough for King Richard maybe the Island is a great place for other couples to tie the knot too. Joking aside, many experts agree that Kolossi is probably one of the most important Medieval castles in Cyprus and it is certainly well worth a visit whilst you are in the area. It makes a great stop off if you are planning to visit the ancient site of Kurion a few miles further along the Limassol to Paphos highway.

The missing Templars Treasure

The Priory of Sion




The Priory of Sion has a long history starting in AD 1099, and had illustrious Grand Masters including Isaac Newton and Leonardo da Vinci.
The order protects certain royal claimants because they believe them to be the literal descendants of Jesus and his alleged wife Mary Magdalene or, at the very least, of King David. The priory seeks the founding of a “Holy European Empire” that would become the next hyper power and usher in a new world order of peace and prosperity.

All this is a matter of recorded in the history books and is readily available on the internet, however researched has uncovered that there is much more to be told and this is now possible due to our changing times. For example many of the original orders of the knights Templar did not in fact fade into history as they had wished the world to believe. But in fact they went underground to escape persecution and in order to survive affiliated themselves with various likeminded organisations as cover often using their great hidden wealth to facilitate this transition, organisations such as the Freemasons. It is even said that they had links to the luminartie.
The original band of Knights occupied the Temple of soloman for nine years, very rarely leaving the temple. There is no doubt they were working on the direct orders from Rome their task to find and secure any religious artefacts they could find, to this end they undertook vast excavations under the temple constructing a labyrinth of tunnels, and many religious artefacts were indeed found.
However the important of some of the finds were not realised until very recent times. Records of these particular events are difficult to find as its unlikely proper records would have been kept at the time, with the exception of minor references doted around documents & history books of bones , religious crosses, wall inscriptions and general descriptions of what was found. Nothing remarkable jumps out that would fuel the myths that have develop in the 21st century such as portrayed in Hollywood films and in book like the last Templar although from what I now know I do not discount them entirely, Strangely a minor mention of two small deformed skeleton with enlarged sculls believe to be children being found in a small sealed collapsed chamber deep underground marked with unidentified hieroglyphics thought at the time to be Egyptian, a mention was made that the chamber felt warmer than the surrounding tunnels also that a small “ pyramid" object decorated with images of “Heavenly Bodies " that It was neither Gold or Silver and surprisingly light and felt warm & Soft to the touch, that the chamber was also said to smell of Armour in battle.
Would have not flagged up until you take into account events I myself was involved in insert

I only mention this because I remembered something I was told during my service as a Royal Military Police officer. I was on operation.s at Greenham common Air Base during the protest over the cruise missiles in the mid-eighties. I was working very closely with US military police. One evening over a joint patrol two USMPs got to talking to me about our past experiences and the strange things we had come across or had to do "War Stories" to while away the time it was during this time one of the stories they told me was that they had both been on security detail at an Airbase desert Airbase close to the infamous Area 51. They told me that their main duties was guarding secret us projects housed in a number of secure building on the base. On one occasion they had to escort a group of civilian personnel to a secure vault whilst they stood guard the civilians proceeded to examining an object that he said he had got a quick glimpse of. It was a small pyramid shapped object that looked like chrome with a gold tint the team they spent all afternoon with it then it was place back in the container and placed back in the vault. The two MP said that this sort of duty was the norm they said there were thousands of box up items they believed most were abandoned aircraft and military prototype .This would not have raised any interest with me at the time as it was many years later I This has raised the question in my mind could this have been the artefact found over a 1000 years ago by a group a knights. If it is why isn’t it in a museum and not secretly locked away in a military airbase notorious for UFO’s and extra-terrestrials?

The Oldest and the most secret Knights Temper order being the third order very little is known of this orders activities very little has been written down having evolved later when the remaining groups of Templar’s had either been #@$%!!! or fragmented across Europe and the far east What is known that they kept their own "Church” and they are reputed to be the true blood decadence of the original council of nine. It is said that they have only come together on very rear occasions in times of conflict i.e. (At the outbreak of WW11) many knights have and are serving in the armed forces not reviling their Templar identities to anyone except to pass on the secrets & mantel to the chosen hairs it is further said that since 9/11 Marshals they hold all the true secrets of the Templar’s have ordered raising of the black & white colours again and that the call to stand to and to prepare to take up the sword again rings through lodges and other organisations throughout Europe and wherever Templar’s roam.


The Priory of Sion

The Priory of Sion

The Priory of Sion has a long history starting in AD 1099, and had illustrious Grand Masters including Isaac Newton and Leonardo da Vinci.
The order protects certain royal claimants because they believe them to be the literal descendants of Jesus and his alleged wife Mary Magdalene or, at the very least, of King David. The priory seeks the founding of a “Holy European Empire” that would become the next hyper power and usher in a new world order of peace and prosperity.
Opus Dei
Opus Dei is an organization of the Catholic Church that emphasizes the Catholic belief that everyone is called to god .The order was founded in Spain in 1928 by Roman Catholic priest Josemaría Escrivá with the approval of Pope Pius XII. When Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code was published, it claimed that Opus Dei was a secret organization within the Church whose aim was to defeat the Priory of Sion and those who seek to uncover the “truth” about Christianity and the alleged royal bloodline of Christ. Outside of the book, there has been a great deal of controversy over Opus Dei because of the strictness of its religious structure. The Catholic Church forbids secret societies and membership in them, and Opus Dei investigators have frequently debunked claims that this organization is acting in secrecy to further a sinister agenda.
