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 final session explores the continuing foundation, re-foundation and recreation of Military-Religious Orders during the 13th century and up to the present day.
