Video: Knights Templar – Hugh of Payens

SHARE

The Knights Templar were founded by Hugh of Payens, a pious but practical and extraordinarily brave French Knight.

We wonder if, when he and a tiny group of fellow ‘Poor Knights’ first proposed the foundation of the Order in 1119, they had any inkling of the fact that it would become and remain a symbol of Christian dedication, sacrifice and heroism that is still an inspiration to millions almost nine hundred years later?
