Chapter Summary

During the two centuries of its lifespan the Temple's influence in Northwest Italy was by no means negligible. The settlement pattern of an order that naturally tended to locate its houses on the main East-West routes was based on logistical needs. The sale of the Gorra estate, notwithstanding all its problems, highlighted the Order's desire to exploit the potential of its possessions to the full. Of further significance is that these affiliates also came from the most important families in the area, the ones that sometimes joined the Crusades. A number of interesting insights arise in relation to the pedigrees of the Templar dignitaries active in North-west Italy. In conclusion, the Temple in North-west Italy fulfilled significant roles on two different levels.
