Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which utilizes the entire Collection d’Albon which has been neglected by scholars but has proven to be a gold-mine for prosopographical research. Modern publications indicate that there is still considerable editorial work to be done with regard to the Templars' western archives. The Hospitallers’ normative texts can be divided into four groups, namely the order’s rule, compiled during the mastership of Raymond of Puy and confirmed by Pope Eugenius III. There is a body of material for the history of the Templars that, although tragic, contains a wealth of information about the central convent and its officials, namely the records of the fourteenth-century trial which led to the order's dissolution.

Keywords:d’Albon; Hospitaller; Pope Eugenius III; Templars
