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 third session continues the exploration of the Orders' origins with papers examining the Orders' networks of patronage and their appeal to contemporary society and culture.
