Enter the Knights Templar
Much had changed in the Roman world, since Caesar took refuge in the tiny Roman State of Seborga, one thing had not changed though, Seborga still remained an independent state of the Roman Empire on 1118 when seven wealthy knights from Europe stopped at the Abbey and Monastery build atop its Holy Hill.
On their way to the Crusades, the 7 knights were made an offer by the Prince Abbot that ruled the tiny Roman State.
In exchange for their Earthly wealth, they would be dubbed the Poor Militia of Christ, and told the secret of the Abbey, that entombed within it, was the body of Gaius Julius Caesar and the Roman Imperial Scepter and that Christ was but a fabrication invented by Rome to use divide and conquer warfare to conquer the world.
That a Council of Eight had long guarded these secrets, and that by accepting one of the Abbot’s monks to ride along with them, that the 8 of them, would help to change the course of the world, and bring about Caesar’s grand plans.
Instructed to inflict maximum carnage on the battlefield against the Sarasin and Islamic Soldiers, if they succeeded in their task, that the privilege of making the ruins of the Second Temple would be their duty and privilege, to excavate all that remains, of the real religion the Hebrews once practiced there, that could put the lie to the whole grand plan.
There courage and exploits became legendary, and when Jerusalem feel, Rome made good on the Prince Abbot’s promise and redubbed them the Templar Knights.
They would spend decades excavating the ruins of the Temple of its hidden treasures and scrolls to carry back to Seborga, securing and learning their secrets. Of the 23 Grand Masters of the Templar Knights 15 were also elected Prince of Seborga over the years, and would sit on the Council of Eight.
The Council of Eight that still rules the Roman World and the Shadow Government to this day.
[size=10] The Knights Templar
Questions and Disputes
The Knights Templar “mission statement” at their humble beginnings was to protect pilgrims on journeys to holy places. They were officially sanctioned by the Church in the year 1129.
Early fundraising efforts raised substantial wealth and “promised” donors a place in Heaven. Soon the Knights Templar had expanded into multi-national status and were immune to many laws.
Continuing fundraising and business ventures made the Knights Templar a financial power that introduced a “banking” system similar to modern banking. They became famous for property and wealth management, and loaned large sums to Kings and others.
Were the Knights Templar influenced, or perhaps infiltrated by the Merchant/Business cartels that spanned the known world trade routes ?
Were the Knights Templar a “nation within nations” ?
Were the Knights Templar the true founders of Switzerland and the Swiss Banks ?
Who are the “Council of Eight” today ?
Was the promised “place in Heaven” the same as Islamic “promises” ?
Did the Knights Templar have secret agreements with the Mongols ?
Were the Knights Templar in fact financing both France and England in wars between both countries ? Were they financing other French “enemies” ?
Phillip IV of France “arrested” the Knights Templar in October 1307, effectively canceling all Templar debts. Did this set the stage for the conflicts known as the Hundred Years War ?
Did Phillip IV’s timing have anything to do with the death of England’s Edward I, or did his timing have more to do with his (Phillip IV’s) excommunication (and later reinstatement) from the Church and later disagreements ?
Was Phillip IV aware that Pope Clement V had absolved the Knights Templar leadership in August 1308 (The Chinon Parchment) ?
How did the events of 1215 (Magna Carta, Fourth Lateran Council (including anti-Jewish laws) affect the Knights Templar, OR, what influences did the Knights Templar have on those events ? Did the Knights Templar secretly allow Jewish membership or employment at that time ?
Were the Jesuits founded on Knights Templar military principals ?
Were the Knights Templar castle builders the first Freemasons ?
What are the real secrets of Seborga ?
When Rome officially BANNED the templars? 3/22/1312 - 322 it could be Rome's code that represented the process that sent the Kights Templar underground...hidden in the society. Rome have a long experience in hiding its criminal activities.
The Chinon Parchment is a historical document, discovered in September 2001 by Barbara Frale, an Italian paleographer at the Vatican Secret Archives who claimed that in 1308, Pope Clement V secretly absolved the last Grand Master Jacques de Molay and the rest of the leadership of the Knights Templar from charges brought against them by the Medieval Inquisition. The parchment is dated Chinon, 17-20 August 1308 and was written by Bérenger, cardinal priest of SS. Nereus and Achileus, Stephanus, cardinal priest of St. Cyriac in Thermis, and Landolf, cardinal deacon of Sant'Angelo in Pescheria; the Vatican keeps an authentic copy with reference number Archivum Arcis Armarium D 218, the original having the number D 217

maybe the whole thing was a plan ?
A tomb believed to be that of St. Philip the Apostle was unearthed during excavations in the ancient Turkish city of Hierapolis.
Italian professor Francesco D'Andria said archeologists found the tomb of the biblical figure -- one of the 12 original disciples of Jesus -- while working on the ruins of a newly-unearthed church, Turkish news agency Anadolu reported Wednesday.
"We have been looking for Saint Philip's tomb for years," d'Andria told the agency. "We finally found it in the ruins of a church which we excavated a month ago."
The structure of the tomb and the writings on the wall proved it belonged to St. Philip, he added.

This is the fifth church we have brought to daylight in this ancient city," Ozhanli said.
Ozhanli said this recently found church was also below the Men Temple, and the number of churches in the area rose to six.
"This indicates that this area was an important center for Christianity, and it was the capital of Pisidia," Ozhanli said.
Pisidian Antioch (also called Antioch-of-Pisidia) was a major Roman colony that was visited by St. Paul on his First Missionary Journey. Pisidian Antioch marked an important turning point in Paul's ministry, as the city became the first to have a fully Gentile Christian community.
Situated on the southern foothills of the Sultan Mountains, Pisidian Antioch was spread over seven small hills in a manner reminiscent of Rome. The city was founded in the early 3rd century BC by the Seleucid dynasty.
After the apostle's death, an octagonal tomb named "The Martryium" was erected for him where he is believed to have been martyred.
THE MARTYRIUM OF ST. PHILIP
st. philip martyrium The imposing remains of the martyrium constructed in the first half of the 5th century in memory of St. Philip can be seen on slightly higher ground just outside the city defence walls.
The efforts of St. Philip resulted in the foundation here of one of the first Christian communities and one of the first Christian churches. After Philip's I crucifixion by the Romans in 80 his son continued the work of proselytism. Although it would seem reasonable to assume that St. Philip was buried on the site of the ruins of this martyrium no trace has been found of his grave. The martyrium itself is an octagonal structure on foundations measuring approximately 20 x 20 m. Access to the martyrium is afforded by a monumental flight of steps leading up to the building on the side towards the city.
The first person blamed for the destruction of the Library is none other than Julius Caesar himself. In 48 BC, Caesar was pursuing Pompey into Egypt when he was suddenly cut off by an Egyptian fleet at Alexandria. Greatly outnumbered and in enemy territory, Caesar ordered the ships in the harbor to be set on fire. The fire spread and destroyed the Egyptian fleet. Unfortunately, it also burned down part of the city - the area where the great Library stood. Caesar wrote of starting the fire in the harbor but neglected to mention the burning of the Library. Such an omission proves little since he was not in the habit of including unflattering facts while writing his own history. But Caesar was not without public detractors. If he was solely to blame for the disappearance of the Library it is very likely significant documentation on the affair would exist today.
