About the Globe
The Templar Globe is the official bulletin / blog of the International Chancellery of the Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani Universalis, sometimes referred simply as The Templars.
The bulletin is edited and published by the Chancellor of the Order, Fr. Luis de Matos.
In it you can find the latest news, research, media and links related to the historical Order and the several branches in activity today. You can subscribe to the Templar Globe for free.
The present OSMTHU claims no direct link or descent from the historical Templar Order, although we can trace our existence as a “templar inspired” Order back to the early XVIII century. We pledge to live according to those ancient codes of honour and chivalry and conduct our actions as members of the Order and individuals within the most strict Christian spiritual tradition in a broad ecumenical sense.
At the moment there are many Templar groups in the world and they should be looked at for their “fruits”, not their fantastic claims. Our Order is positioned within the ancient branch animated by Parlaprat in XVIII century France that survived to this day spread around the world organised in smaller branches. The OSMTHU was established by the will of a number of long existing Autonomous Priories that joined in the preparation of free and universal elections among Templar groups and succeeded to elect a new Master and Magisterial Council.
The present serving Master is Fr. Antonio Paris from Italy.
