Rule of the Knights Templar


Description Provenance Credit
Description This early copy of the Rule of the Knights Templar was created in the last quarter of the thirteenth century in the Arras-Douai region of French Flanders. Its original owner may have been a member of the Order of Dourges, and may have had a familial connection to "Gery dit de Bay," cited in a charter dated 1266 and inserted in the back of the manuscript. The addition of the charter, as well as later notations on the history of the manuscript and of the Templars themselves, make this a rich document.
