Abstract

This final session of eight sessions in commemoration of the arrest of the Templars in 1307 considers the trial of the Templars and the aftermath of the trial in two areas where the course of the trial is not well known to modern-day scholars: Flanders and Poland. The third paper considers the myths that grew up around the Order after the arrest of the brothers and the dissolution of the Order.
