Vatican Publishes Knights Templar Papers


The St. Peter’s Basilica dome is seen through the spy hole of a door of the Templar Church of St. Mary in Aventino, in downtown Rome, Friday, Oct. 12, 2007. The Vatican has published secret documents about the trial of the Knights Templar, including a long-lost parchment showing that Pope Clement V initially absolved the medieval order of heresy. The 300-page volume entitled “Processus Contra Templarios” (Latin for “Trial against the Templars”) came out in a limited edition of 799 copies, printing documents from the Vatican’s secret archives. The Vatican will hold a news conference about the publication on Oct. 25. for more click here
