"The Templars, which, by virtue of their vast network of fund-collecting, had become bankers of sorts, resisted attempts at a merger with the Order
of Saint-John, a project the Pope and other rulers insisted on to better marshal resources for new crusades. Impatient with this resistance, irritated
at the disorder and lack of morality which prevailed in the order, and probably mindful of the Temple's riches, the King of France arrested the
Templars, had them tried on trumped-up charges, and coerced the Pope into pronouncing the dissolution of their order (1312). The Order of Saint-John
became the recipient of the Templars' estates. Two offshoots of the Templars survived in the form of new Orders: the Order of Christ in Portugal
(1318) and the Order of Montesa in Spain (1319). Since the 18th century, many other groups have sprung up claiming a filiation with the Templars.
then it goes on to discuss the order of the garter.... can anyone put together any connections between the two? and why are these guys getting
smothered all over the news like they were the vatican??
This is interseting, and I think we can more or less say it can go in this forum, but, the Order of The Garter, they're not really all that secret
no? Also, that second link, whats the order got to do with freemasonry? Its far older.
Does the news say what the event is? Are they inducting a new member?
It's known that the Templars, The Garters, and Freemasons exist... What I am looking for is a connection or association. If there was one, that still
wouldn't be a conspiracy, it just be a mere connection.
Think about this before you're quick to deliver the disinfo.
Although the site documents the history of the Order of the Garter in some detail and its origins with the Knights Templar, there is no mention of
freemasonry anywhere. What makes you think it is linked?
