Ordre du Temple / Knights Templar
The Knights Templar of Ivanhoe are a group that preserve the Ideals and the Symbols of the Temple. They pertain fully to the Knight Templar Order but they are at the same time a high level autonomous research Commandery.
They work under the regency and the guide of the Lord of Ivanhoe, working inside the international Grand Priory Charlemagne, with the goal of working on the inner meaning of chivalry and unveil to his participants the real secrets of the organization, symbols and practices that were once transmitted through poems and romans and that you can find in part explained in the section on chivalric studies.
The Order of the Temple, or "Knights Templar," is 900 years old, and rich in history. Led by the Frenchman Hughes de Payens, the Knights Templar organization was founded in 1118. On January 13, 1128, Pope Honorius II grants a papal sanction to the military order known as the Knights Templar, declaring it to be an army of God. For a while, the Templars had only nine members, mostly due to their rigid rules. In 1127, new promotional efforts convinced many more noblemen to join the order, gradually increasing its size and influence.They banded together as the first religious / military Order of Knighthood, initially formed to protect Christian pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land. Later they became the first soldier / monks of the ancient Christian (Roman Catholic) Church, wrestling the Holy Land from the Islamic Saracens, and helping establish and maintain the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem for almost two hundred years. This was the occasion for contacts and absorption of ancient knowledges still present in these times in Palestine. The Order was later suppressed by the same Church of Rome it protected, under the hands of a greedy French King controlling a weak French Pope. Instead of dying (as is incorrectly reported by many main-line historians), the Order instead secularized and continued its existence in secret. Its ideas at least continued. The Arthurian legends of the Holy Grail, written by the Templars themselves, preserved the chivalric ideals and esoteric values of the Templar Order, and carried its knightly and priestly reputation as “warrior monks” into the present day. It resurfaced privately in France, and became fully public in 1804 with historical documentation of its continued-but-secret previous existence. In the ancient Statutes of the order membership was hereditary, and in 1804 many ancient templar families were present in the order. The Knights Templar Order was recognised by Napoleon III. This Templar Organization is now international with branches in almost all countries of the world . Indirectly, the Vatican itself validates these organization as it tried to absorb one of these branches as Catholic templars. But in reality the true templar Order is independent. A true, historical Order of Chivalric Knighthood, now entering both men and women to membership as Knights and Dames.
