Description

: Jacques de Molay, the last Master of the Order of the Temple, was burned at the stake on March 1314. Now, 700 years later, people still ask what became of the Templars. Devotees of Dan Brown are unwilling to accept the prosaic explanation that the surviving Templar knights were, along with their properties, absorbed into the Order of the Hospital. Meanwhile, concentration upon the spectacular end of the Templar Order has diverted scholarly attention from evidence that their sometime rivals, the Order of the Hospital, anticipated a similar catastrophe. This panel will explore the scholarly evidence for the presumed absorption of the Templars into the Order of the Hospital and the Hospitallers concerns about their future.
