Chapter Summary

The social standing of the Masters of Italy and Lombardy has been condidered. Several important disputes that arose between Templars and local bishops had also beeen annalysed.Both of these factors must be considered in the light of the Order's exemption from episcopal jurisdiction.It is known for certain that the assignment of the hospital of Sant'Egidio in Testona occurred during the bishopric of Arduino di Valperga.Finally, amongst those convened to the provincial chapter in question was the presbyter Giovanni, of the counts of Biandrate. From this brief summary it appears evident that the same families that were close to the Temple also joined the Hospital. The most important thing about it was its location, being in the immediate proximity of the Stellone waterways.In conclusion,the prerogatives,privileges and wealth acquired by the Temple had made it an important part of the command institution during their efforts to consolidate their Territorial control.
