Knights Templar demand from the Pope to restore the Order

August 4 2008

Spanish Templars, who consider themselves heirs destroyed in the XIV century knight of the Order, filed a lawsuit against Pope Benedict XVI, demanding the restoration of his Order. Association of the Sovereign Order of the Temple of Christ needs to reconsider the decision to ban the Order, and to recognize the illegal confiscation of his wealth, estimated at 100 billion euros, although it does not claim the return of these treasures, according to legal sources. The Templars are reminded that the Order, which operated in France, Spain, Britain, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg and Poland, and dissolved in 1307, consisted of 15,000 knights and had owned 9,000 properties.

Currently, the claim of the Association, which is officially registered in Spain as a social organization, is pending before a court of second instance in Madrid, because the first instance refused to consider it because of lack of jurisdiction over the case 700 years ago, according to RIA Novosti.
