Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled The Central Convent of Hospitallers and Templars History, Organization, and Personnel (1099/1120-1310) contains the table of contents, preface, list of abbreviations and list of tables. Since the late eleventh century, Latin Christians had been introduced to an unprecedented variety of religious lifestyles, among them the ‘Peace of God’ movement as well as the reform orders of Cîteaux and Prémontré. The Hospitallers had their origins even before the First Crusade (1095-9), namely in the second half of the eleventh century, as a charitable foundation providing care to pilgrims in Jerusalem. The book utilizes the entire Collection d’Albon which has been neglected by scholars but has proven to be a gold-mine for prosopographical research.
