Secrets of the Knights Templar – Full Documentary

31



The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon (Latin: Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Salomonici), commonly known as the Knights Templar, the Order of Solomon’s Temple (French: Ordre du Temple or Templiers) or simply as Templars, were among the wealthiest and most powerful of the Western Christian military orders and were prominent actors in Christian finance. The organization existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle Ages.

Officially endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church around 1129, the Order became a favored charity throughout Christendom and grew rapidly in membership and power. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a 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 banking, and building fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.

The Templars’ existence was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Holy Land was lost, support for the Order faded. Rumors about the Templars’ secret initiation ceremony created distrust, and King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Order, 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 Clement V 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.

After the First Crusade captured Jerusalem in 1099, many Christians made pilgrimages to various Holy Places in the Holy Land. However, though the city of Jerusalem was under relatively secure control, the rest of Outremer was not. Bandits and marauding highwaymen preyed upon pilgrims who were routinely slaughtered, sometimes by the hundreds, as they attempted to make the journey from the coastline at Jaffa into the interior of the Holy Land.

In 1119, the French knight Hugues de Payens approached King Baldwin II of Jerusalem and Warmund, Patriarch of Jerusalem, and proposed creating a monastic order for the protection of these pilgrims. King Baldwin and Patriarch Warmund agreed to the request, probably at the Council of Nablus in January 1120, and the king granted the Templars a headquarters in a wing of the royal palace on the Temple Mount in the captured Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Temple Mount had a mystique because it was above what was believed to be the ruins of the Temple of Solomon. The Crusaders therefore referred to the Al Aqsa Mosque as Solomon’s Temple, and from this location the new Order took the name of Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, or “Templar” knights. The Order, with about nine knights including Godfrey de Saint-Omer and André de Montbard, had few financial resources and relied on donations to survive. Their emblem was of two knights riding on a single horse, emphasizing the Order’s poverty.

The impoverished status of the Templars did not last long. They had a powerful advocate in Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, a leading Church figure, the French abbot primarily responsible for the founding of the Cistercian Order of monks and a nephew of André de Montbard, one of the founding knights. Bernard put his weight behind them and wrote persuasively on their behalf in the letter ‘In Praise of the New Knighthood’, and in 1129, at the Council of Troyes, he led a group of leading churchmen to officially approve and endorse the Order on behalf of the Church. With this formal blessing, the Templars became a favored charity throughout Christendom, receiving money, land, businesses, and noble-born sons from families who were eager to help with the fight in the Holy Land. Another major benefit came in 1139, when Pope Innocent II’s papal bull Omne Datum Optimum exempted the Order from obedience to local laws. This ruling meant that the Templars could pass freely through all borders, were not required to pay any taxes, and were exempt from all authority except that of the pope.

With its clear mission and ample resources, the Order grew rapidly. Templars were often the advance shock troops in key battles of the Crusades, as the heavily armored knights on their warhorses would set out to charge at the enemy, ahead of the main army bodies, in an attempt to break opposition lines. One of their most famous victories was in 1177 during the Battle of Montgisard, where some 500 Templar knights helped several thousand infantry to defeat Saladin’s army of more than 26,000 soldiers.

    the Templars probably found the truth about cesarion, the son of god (ceaser as named by senate) and king of kings as named by his mother Cleopatra (who fashioned herself as isis).  son of isis = issu/issa/ Arabic for jesus.

    The Knights Templar have gotten a bad rap over the centuries. They were destroyed and their wealth taken and given to another order because of jealousy, fear, and lies. They were no worse than any other army of knights, military or religious. They were mostly French with a few Italians and Spaniards. The French king feared them and envied their wealth and power, as did the Vatican. For all their faults, they were valiant warriors and defenders of Christianity, and don't try to make out the Arabs and Turks as the good guys. They started their jihads 150 years before the First Crusade.

  21. any assassin here !! just wanted to know more of my enemies …

  22. I am a reincarnation of one of the TEMPLARS, just like to say that the church direction was a big lye and we still have followed their rules to save people from the atheistique world so that they keep beileiving in God because the Jesus theorie was not exact and the pope in those time find out and decided to eliminate us….not because of the Religion because of the richesness that was obtain by the Order form the different high hierarky of different contries….they tought that they destroyded us but we are back in numbers and we will always be soldiers of God at his defense for all human being!!!!!

  23. When the Templars realized what they had in their possession they refused to give the scrolls to the catholic priest,  many of the farmers gave a lot of their land  to the Templars for protection. even though the story goes today that the priest wanted them dead because they were gaining more power and riches. It was more about the scrolls than the money, not only did the scrolls give long life, you could also make gold and that is what Templars did, I believe to this day the scrolls are in Fulcanellis possession to this day somewhere in Spain. When you make the manna only on the Moring star time, you eat one spoon full once ever seven years on that one hour for 49 years. It opens up each chakra (KUNDALINI) and on the last  taking of the manna (LAST SUPPER)? you become a hermaphrodite (head with two faces) that's why no one can work out who the other person is in the da Vinci  painting. It is Jesus after the last taking of the manna.

  24. The scrolls of Seth, is a Manuel on mans evolution, the beginning and the end, the scrolls were kept by priest in the temple of Juno, Built by Cyrus in Persia, the scrolls tell the real story, ( truth) of the apple Tree in the garden, over a thousand years later the scrolls where retrieved by the Templers and kept from man, the scrolls explain the true meaning of the Bible..

  25. the knights Templers  were not looking for the holly grail, they were looking for the scrolls of Seth, and the  scrolls is what they did find, it spoke of wise men who lived on the far east shores, it also informed them of the month, day and time, of the true transparent morning star, witch shows itself in the heavens,  its the only time you can make the holy grail  (MANNA) (PHILOPHERS STONE) Call it what you will.

    The Dome of the Rock is not a holy site. It was build after the prophet passed away. So there is nothing holy about the site. The prophet was just a man as he always explained. So even his dream voyage does not make it a religious site. When the prophet had the dream that structure was not there ! IMHO all it was build for was to show Muslims now were boss there. So build as a torn to the Jews. They occupy the mountain so the Jews can not rebuild the temple of David. Pure psychological warfare !

    And off course the Templars found what they were searching for. That is the reason they never came back after the 3th crusades. Nothing more to get there 😉
