Chapter Summary

The study of material accumulated in the archives of noble families that had particular links to the Knights of St. John has resulted in the tracing of some of the Templar documents. The scope of this study is the period between the first citation of the Temple in the area in 1142 and the last references in the 1330s to houses and property once belonging to the Order. The study of the Temple's role and position in different local contexts is intended to provide both further knowledge of houses that have already been studied as well as an initial picture of those that have not. Thus, by providing the first picture of the Temple presence at a focal point of the mediaeval Mediterranean, such as North-west Italy, this research hopes to contribute to the knowledge of the Temple and to be a useful aid to students of Military Orders.
