Chapter Summary

Certain currents in Italian historiography argue that St. Bernard assisted in the establishment of some Templar houses in the early days of the Order in North-west Italy. The first and only reference to positive relations between the Lombard section of the Order and Alexander III, conversely, dates from 1169.It is known that initially some members of the Order had pledged their support to the antipope, Victor IV. The presence of these dignitaries from North-west Italy in the papal court and the roles assigned them by popes mark the significant progress made by the Lombard section of the Order in relations with the papal see.It can be inferred however, that in 1167 the provincial master Bonifacio travelled from Jerusalem to Liguri.
