The Latin Rule was specific codes for the Templar Order. Its 72 clauses defined the ideal behaviour for the Knights, such as the types of garments they were to wear and how to eat. As the Order grew, more guidelines were added, and the original list of 72 clauses was expanded to several hundred in its final form. Some of my family were these knights.
See the home of the Knights Templar. Temple Church was constructed in the 12th century by the Knights Templar – a powerful order of crusading monks made famous by Dan Brown in The Da Vinci Code. The building was originally used for Templar initiation ceremonies, and today, visitors can see marble effigies of medieval knights buried on the grounds.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, Jesus reigns as King and the Virgin Mary reigns as Queen. Devout Roman Catholic men are Knights and devout women are Dames. I embrace my Knighthood.
Godfrey de Saint-Omer and eight other knights was the first group of knights in the Order. They had few financial resources and relied on donations to survive. Their emblem was of two knights riding on a single horse, emphasising the Order's poverty. Around 1129 the Order was officially endorsed by the Catholic Church. The Order became a favoured charity throughout Christendom and grew rapidly in membership and power. See other meaning in earlier post
