A lot has been written regarding the Knight Templar; here at Kristuzac we will show their true origins and purpose. Yeah it is a bold claim, and we are sure that we are correct. The standard “accepted” story of the order’s beginnings never sat well with me, and why should it? I mean seriously, how much sense does this really make, that not long after the succession of the second Christian king of Jerusalem, Baldwin II, who was approached by nine Christian knights who wanted to volunteer themselves as a crack defensive force to protect pilgrims from bandits on the highways of the holy land. Then this recently appointed king immediately gives these knights lodgings on the site of the Temple of Solomon and, pays for their upkeep for the next nine years. In 1128, in spite of the fact that this group of knights never ventured far from the temple mount, they were elevated to being a “holy order” by the pope, for protecting pilgrims for a full decade! It’s at this point that they formally adopt the title, The Order of the Poor Soldiers of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, or Knight Templar. This very small group of men was all of a sudden the “official” defense arm of the Roman church in the holy land.
It is odd just how quickly things began to move after that. They soon almost miraculously transformed in to an extremely wealthy Order, which went on to become the bankers for European royalty. The question becomes why? Some historians have attached the growing power and wealth of the roman church to the Templar’s growing wealth and influence. While that line of thought is logical and almost makes sense, it is also inaccurate.
What we must do is take in to consideration the order’s beginning, meaning the men who were responsible for the first crusade. Pope Sylvester II, known as Gerbert of Aurillac, he
was French born, a scholar and a teacher. He was pope from 999-1003. In many small ways, he began to set seeds growing that would ultimately lead to the first crusade. In 1096 when the first crusade began, we must remember that Cordoba Spain had been, and still was, a major learning center for the European nobility. In addition, these families were still heavily influenced by their Judaic/essene/grail family nobility. When Hugues de Vermandois, Godfroid de Bouillon – Duke of Lower Lorraine, and his brother Baudouin, Bohemund and Tancred of Sicily, Raymond de Toulouse, Robert de Flanders, Robert de Normandie, Etienne de Blois – Count of Boulogne, and Adhemar, papal legate and bishop of Puy, all closely related to one another, decided to embark on this first crusade, the plan they hatched was huge.
There was unquestionably a religious aspect to the crusade, but not in the way, you may think. As stated previously when Islam invaded a territory they would guarantee the safety of the inhabitants of the area, and indeed, they did. The problem was when the Byzantines – Turks, turned to Islam, and invaded new areas; they would burn, rape, and pillage often leaving nothing but wanton destruction in their wake. This type of behavior was of course against the tenets of Islam, and provided reason enough alone for someone to stage an intervention.
Here we begin to see what the Templars would become frighteningly famous for, their long term political planning. They may very well have approached Baldwin II, asked for the right to base themselves at the Temple Mount, done what they could to excavate under the temple to both treasure hunt, and of course to, ingratiate themselves with both Baldwin II and Pope Urban II . Having achieved these goals, they then began to work their true plan, which was to grow their organization so that they could successfully challenge the might of the catholic church.
Throughout these articles, I have said that the truth is obscured. It at times is almost impossible to ferret out. Yet at times, the pieces simply fall effortlessly in to place. I began this article with a great deal of skepticism, yet by looking at the complete picture, we have opened up possibilities that seemed outlandish until we walked through the complete idea. This my friends, is the way of the Holy Grail, from learning about the Annunaki and their behavior, to Christ and understanding the Essenes; to the Knight Templar, and their descendent organization, the Freemasons. All of these different aspects of the grail have one thing in common, and that is, obfuscation. The Annunaki specialize in it, so that they can maintain their “god” like image. Our grail kings learned to take aspects of it, and turned it in to long- term plans.
When the French king, Phillip IV caused the disbanding of the Templars on Friday October 13, 1307,
the organization had as a whole, over 600,000 members across Europe. In addition, as stated, were bankers to most of Europe’s royal houses. Phillip IV owed millions to them, and it is thought that this was one of the reasons he betrayed them. Giles de Colonna, who was to become Archbishop of Burgues, educated Phillip and left the 17-year-old king with this, Jesus Christ has not given any temporal dominion to his church, and the king of France has his authority from God alone. What Colonna did, was he created a monarch who would bow to no man, nor be subservient to the will of the church. The 17-year-old King Phillip inherited three things from his father, a debt-ridden kingdom, an arranged marriage, and a love of hunting. Phillip calculated that, even without interest payments that it would take over 300 years to pay off his father’s debts.
His father had levied extraordinary taxes on the Jews in 1284, and Phillip continued to do so as well in 1292, and 1303. In 1306, he ordered a 100% tax on all Jewish possessions. In 1295, he instituted an extremely harsh tax on the Lombard and Florentine bankers, but this only yielded him £65,000. Phillip’s expenses were running at about £4,000 a day at the time, in order to meet his debts he was forced to devalue his currency. Both his father and grandfather had used the financial services of the Templars in Paris, but Phillip decided that he would install his own treasury staff at the Louvre.
What Phillip did next is arguably history’s first instance of a nation willfully devaluing its currency. He recalled all coinage, had it reminted with the same face value but with much lower precious metal content. Inflation was not a problem during the mediaeval period; in 1303, the buying power of the French mark was half of what it had been in 1290. By debasing his currency, the crown raised £1,200,000 between 1298 and 1299, and £185,000 in 1301.
