Abstract

This sixth of eight sessions in commemoration of the arrest of the Templars in 1307 considers the trial of the Order in Sicily and northern Italy, and the Templars in Greece. Although Italy was an important centre for the Templars, the trial in the Italian peninsula has not received as much attention from scholars as that in France, while the Templars’ history in Greece is largely unknown to western scholars. This session will make a contribution towards redressing these deficiencies. A fourth paper in this session, if the speaker is able to attend, will consider the work of an early modern Italian historian of the trial.
