January 2020 will mark the 900th anniversary of the Church Council of Nablūs in January 1120, which was probably the setting for the foundation of the Order of the Temple. Four sessions, organised in commemoration of this event, will explore various aspects of the origins of the Military-Religious Orders, transnational institutions which developed in Latin Christendom in the early 12th century in the wake of the First Crusade. This second session explores the Orders' beginnings in Latin Europe and how they began to develop their administrative networks.
