The Knights Templar–Guardians of the Holy Grail

"She walks upon our meadows green, the Lamb of God walks by her side,
And (in) every English Child is seen, children of Jesus and his Bride."
‘Song of Jerusalem’ by William Blake

I recently returned from Scotland and England, pursuing the legends and history of the guardians of the Grail mysteries and Magdalene’s legacy, the 12th to 14th century Knights Templar. These Knights were the most powerful military, political-financial and spiritual force of Medieval Europe, consulted by kings, popes, and anyone else choosing to be on the inner power circles of that era. Their realm of influence reached from the Holy Land, the entire near east, Cypress, Malta and throughout what is known today as Europe and Great Britain. The Templars were known for their extensive fleets of ships, and were involved in transporting people, trade items and sacred relics, to the far reaches of the western world, similar to the much earlier Phoenicians.


"The Templars riding with their red cross were
the keepers of the secret of the rose within the chalice."
‘The Sword and the Grail’ by Andrew Sinclair

The Templar Order was formed in Jerusalem, 1118 AD with nine members, ostensibly to guard the safety of traveling pilgrims. Although nine Knights is hardly a sufficient number to guard the thousands traveling during the Crusades between Jerusalem and France. Strangely, they were immediately granted posh living quarters at El-Aqsa Mosque, on the site of the old Temple of Jerusalem, and rare permission to excavate the deep vaults below! (They are also called the Knights of the Order of the Temple of Solomon). Some researchers claim they found ancient scrolls, the Holy Grail and even the Ark of the Covenant. Laurence Gardner, author of ‘Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark’ says that by 1127 AD, the Templars had found the Ark, and along with other untold Temple treasures, brought them back to France. Perhaps secret Masonic building codes discovered in Jerusalem fed the rise of the new heights of architectural mastery in the Gothic cathedrals. I suspect that a much older mystical organization lies at the roots of the Knights Templar, an order that was guarding some very powerful and ancient secret knowledge.

The incredible flowering of the Grail mysteries that rose during the 11th and 12th centuries was squashed by the horrific Inquisition, initiated by Phillip IV, King of France and Pope Clement in order to purge Europe of its heretics. The influencial Templars lived outside of the law, and had gained more power and popularity than was ‘safe’, according to the rulers of church and state. The Inquisition officially began Friday, October 13, 1307, marked by the arrest, imprisonment and torture of thousands of Knights Templar, and punctuated by the 1314 burning at the stake in Paris of Templar Grand Master, Jacques de Molay. A tremendous cache of ancient relics and possible scrolls from Jerusalem, gold and other treasure, was stored in the Templar’s vaults in Paris. Many believe these were secreted out of France during this time, on Templar fleets bound for the safety of Templar-friendly England and even more remote Scotland. King Robert the Bruce was the ‘braveheart’ and grand heretic (already excommunicated by the Pope), of the wild and rebellious Scots, who received the Templars with open arms. The Templars are thought to have joined forces with Bruce, and defeated the English at the famous Battle of Bannockburn. This battle was a turning point for the Scottish rebellion, and England finally recognized Scotland as an independent nation, and Robert The Bruce as their king.
